petition to bring back rainbows in computer logos
rt if u agree, fav if u agree https://twitter.com/isislovecruft/status/1031794845109477377
@espectalll not really a rainbow, but rather the visible light spectrum probably
@bhtooefr then don't put a rainbow
you can't get everything in life, deal with it *puts on sunglasses*
@espectalll What is that second one? The one with the rainbow over the keyboard.
@apetresc Sinclair Spectrum ZX, pretty popular across Europe in the 80s
@js I've seen another older one that got viral as well lmao https://mastodon.social/@kennethlove/100588742672507115
@espectalll I’ll think I’ll set up a bot today that mirrors Tweets to Toots. Hopefully everyone can follow this mirror then and we’ll have a single Toot. I guess I’ll mirror people on request.
@js yeah, you could have a Mastodon instance where you login with a Twitter account, mirror all tweets, and then lets you easily move on to another server
@espectalll I thought about people just message me a Twitter handle they want to see mirrored here.
@js my idea is better lol
@espectalll Will only give you people willing to move to Mastodon. Those are usually not the problem.
@espectalll And on the boxes.
@rocx YES PLEASE
@espectalll also bring back pc cases that aren't black. I'd love a colorful pc case. Like green or yellow or blue or purple
@famicom luckily we're getting more colorful phones lately, which I think are more important (Huawei, Sony, even Samsung), and you can also get a wide variety of desktop case... even with... LEDs...
@espectalll I actually loved how iPhone 5c looked, but nowt the fact that it was just an iPhone 5 in a new case. I hope we see more bright budget phones. That's the reason I loved Lumias
@famicom SAME, I both wanted the 5c and got a Lumia 630. I like my XZ2 Compact's moss green tho.
@espectalll how's the compact? For me, I feel like 5" isn't exactly "compact" enough. I would've called it an XZ2 Average Screen Size
@famicom It's... small enough. Kinda like the iPhone 8 but thicker and with less width, the most important things (being able to hold it with one hand and fitting in pockets) still apply
@espectalll thanks for the pic. I currently own a 6s+ and it's honestly bigger than comfortable. I think I'll go with an SE 2 if/when it releases
@espectalll imagine if they did an iPhone CE (Colorful Edition). Like 5c, but good
@famicom They could perfectly do it, making colorful iMacs and iBooks was *their* thing, after all, and there's the (RED) edition iPhones.
@espectalll I'd love to see the return of polycarbonate macbooks with all the different colors
@famicom Honestly I think it has just exactly the size it has to have - a tiny bit larger anywhere and it wouldn't work. If you think an SE2 or equivalent would work better... well, I bet Apple is basically going to do the same and just make a slightly-smaller device but with more screen-to-body ration than the 8. We'll see soon.
@calmbit is this from the Atari ST lol
@Lenneth Exactly! Apple did it first and that worked out, so everyone had to copy it... except IBM, of course.
@espectalll Can we bring back that gratuitous woodgrain paneling too?
@beefgnawpolis sure, the Novena laptop did it
@espectalll all computers are gay send toot
@espectalll Atari Falcon had one too http://gamesniped.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Atari-Falcon-030-Compact-Flash-Drive.jpg
