Look what they did to the bridge!

I'm pretty sure that the Dell employed Campus Rep. (student) did this. I'm not sure whether this is legal or not, as the bridge gets graffiti all the time by students for messages, but it's NOT cool...and ugly! I'm appauled. As a former Apple rep. I'd never do that because of the public image, not to mention the internal response!

These pictures were taken about an hour ago.




Certainly express your comments and also, if you have any suggestions for someone to repaint/modify this, what are they?

I'd ask the campus police about it first. Since the bridge is on campus, it's in their jurisdiction. However, considering the way a lot of schools are going commercial, whoever did this may actually have had permission...a scary thought, but a possiblility.

I'm pretty positive that they didn't get approval per se, but it's just a place where lots have painted. You'd think that with the might of Dell, that they'd want to do something a bit more classy.

... so Dell + Napster = Crap, or Dell + Napster = Junk, what are your suggestions for a repaint? I know you folks are creative!

That means the bridge is fair game for Apple graffiti too.

I'd think so, but it'd have to be up to Apple standards in my book. Unless it's just something like Dell+Napster=Desperation Other ideas?

Where is that on campus? By the Union building, or is it by Kirkwood?

It's next to the new theater building on Jordan. Near the undergrad admissions and honor division. Send me an IM if you're at IU! JSchalliol or PM.

Napster Sucks + Dell Sucks = Sucks Squared

No budster. I'm lame at Algebra, but the magnitude of two variables is a square.

The correct equation: Since Napster and Dell both suck, you can assume both have the same variable, but we'll keep their names.
(Napster) x (Dell) = Suck squared.

But technically, that's just the magnitude of Napster and Dell. The actual result would be a vector that couldn't be described in one vector.

Smarty pants.

Yeah, but look at the irony of this equation, it's so subtle, they'd put it up.

DELL GREAT + NAPSTER GREAT = GREAT SQUARED....
