Interesting that you should say that. Some years ago I err ran into a stripper that knew more about what was going on at the company I worked for than I did. We are talking a very high level. I'm not sure if she had a side job or just good connections but she was right on the money a few weeks down the road. Strange too was that she was very well educated and intelligent compared to your average dancer. Far too rational to be a reporter that is for sure.
I have to say, though, that the AI reporters do a better job with Apple-centric subjects than the average NYT, WSJ or NPR reporter. This comes mostly from knowing the subject better.
I see this all the time, be it ignorance about gun control, reporting on corporations in industries they have no understanding on, twisted reporting to back what ever editorial agenda the rag has and just general stupidity as a human. It gets especially bad with technology be it climate, semiconductors or oil exploration, sometimes you have to wonder just how gullible people are. Even less excusable are blatant screw ups in technical magazines, here the standard is much higher than the average media editorial but you often see a strained effort to report on things that are obviously beyond the authors understanding.
The first course in journalism schools ought to be Humility Before the Truth 101. Instead the schools and the job itself tacitly teach arrogance born of ignorance.
Yet millions buy into whatever is in print. There is still this mentality that if it is in print it must be true. Of course those people aren't much more intelligent than the reporters.
About that TSMC logo: does it suggest precision or even competence? I think it suggests an engineer knocked it out in an afternoon.
Precisely, that is what makes it so good! It highlights that the company is a no non sense engineering company.
The reality is this, I've seen companies spend huge bucks to contract with firms to produce logos and other marks for a company to replace the old and then to have such work thrown away a couple of years later. Often the materials generated just don't ring with customers or have no linkage with the products the company markets.
Then we have TSMC logo which is simple to implement and easy to recognize. Even if you are only loosely familiar with semiconductor manufacturing it immediately gives hint to what TSMC is all about. Further it is a logo that can be printed anywhere even on wafers or individual chips. Its simplicity highlights a company that is practical and focused.
Really what do you guys expect from a Logo?
