Tiny (Or Rather Shiny?) Bubbles: Apple Trademarks Dialogue Bubbles?
As Don Ho (and others) have sung:
In the wine
Make me feel happy
Ah, they make me feel fine
Those tiny bubbles
Make me warm all over
With a feeling that I’m gonna
Love you till the end of time
The little charming talk bubbles all over the Internet communications have a similar warm effect. They remind me of comic strips and comic books and of adults droning “wa wawa waaa” in Peanuts cartoons on T.V. Ah no more. According to TechCrunch, when a developer wondered why his App had not been approved he was told “the bubbles in its chat rooms are too shiny, and Apple has trademarked that bubbly design.” Wow. Do comic strip and book folks know that Apple is that clever? The wondrous shiny dialogue bubble means Apple! Do the green bubbles qualify too? Yet again I am left wondering what’s a cubit and contemplating a drink with tiny, shiny bubbles.
So I leave you with Don Ho and Tiny Bubbles.
