When only quads will do . . .

Well I thought I was on the Apple site - or at best a spoof site -- but it's absolutely genuine. Liebermann computers make what is the last word in high end computer systems [for WINTEL that is] -- take a look at the grand canyon display on the right. Apple's lawyers must be rubbing their hands in glee at http://www.go-l.com/home/index.htm

Get this - each logo on every computer is unique - fashioned from an individual [and different] piece of rock.

For producing our logos we use marble, granite, quartz, sandstone, conglomerate, breccia, volcanic breccia, pegmatite, porphyry, granodiorite, gabbro, ultramafic rock, syenite, diorite, quartzite, schist, gneiss, obsidian, chert, tuff, felsite, andesite, basalt, limestone, dolomite, shale, slate, serpentine, and talc among many others. They come from remote places like India, China, Thailand, Tibet, South Africa, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Chile, and Peru.
