I’m not one that usually wears logo tees, and I peel all the extra stickers off of the electronics I buy. I just don’t much care for being an unwitting billboard for a company when I just paid money for their product. That’s why I was happy to read that Dell may be pushing back on OEMs to get rid of the case stickers:
The stickers placed on computers and laptops by the major OEMs are not only irritating to some users, but apparently Dell is tired of the branding game, too. Why might Dell object? The king of computer mass production says that the time it takes to put all of these various stickers on products is a bottleneck in their operations.
The XP and ATI stickers were the first things gone when I bought my laptop, but the freakin’ Intel sticker is held on with some kind of magic space glue, and it’s right on the hand rest. It’s still there, and every time I see it, I get the urge to kick one of the Blue Men.
