Cute little anecdote about the orientation of the logo on the back of Apple laptops.

Reminds me of the bat ring I used to wear,1 and the girl in high school art class who couldn’t deal with the fact I wore it so it appeared “head up” for other people looking at my hands. She was convinced rings should be worn so they appeared “correct” from the point-of-view of the wearer, not the viewer, so used to physically grab my hands and switch it around on me.

High school was wild, man.

Also, I will note Microsoft solves the “which way does the logo go” problem by having a logo on the backs of its Surfaces that’s both horizontally and vertically symmetrical. Hah! Take that, Steve Jobs!

  1. For like fifteen years. Eventually the cheap metal got so bent—the “ring” was basically in the shape of a D—it got too uncomfortable. []
