Tim and the GSM Logo – Some Nostalgia

Tim-and-the-gsm-logoSome heart warming nostalgia today: For some time now, the GSM logo initially designed at the end of the 1980s and used on a lot of GSM related products in the decades afterwards is rarely to be seen these days anymore. But there are some who still use it on new products. Have a look at the new 2015 Telecom Italia SIM card I've recently been given. It's not big and prominent anymore but still there. I wonder what the intention was to put it there. Perhaps by someone with nostalgia in his or her heart? We'll probably never find out but it made me smile nevertheless. And just in case you wonder what the meaning is behind the for dots in the logo, have a look here.
