Humor: Tech companies and their corresponding Christmas icons
You got to hand it to the gang at The Joy of Tech, they can read into things the way many of us feel, but rarely articulate to one degree or another. Their take on Facebook, Instagram and RIM will certainly extol a chuckle. Apple was treated with kid gloves.

With Microsoft using the lovable Abominable Snowman as part of its Windows Phone 8 campaign, we see a perfect fit to rib at them for the same reason. Amazon is like that clingy girlfriend. Even Santa is in on the action.

Okhay, here's the deal! You are the reindeer, since you said you enjoy being one and Santa's Apple. And what does Santa do with reindeers? He USES them to get to destinations he wants. Long story short, Apple's using you.

That's what I'm enjoyed :D And trust me, I'm the only reindeer who speak bah-bah-meh :p

Google is Santa Clause that brings people Christmas gifts like Google Fiber or Nexus 4, and just like in real life not every1 can receive gifts from Santa. And Apple is Google's deer? Hmm

Unless Rudolph filed for a patent for, "A method for transporting a mythical being by way of flying animals in a vehicle such as a sleigh, sled or other conveyance that may be rectangular with rounded corners," then sued to ban all other reindeer from the skies even though they were flying before him, I don't see the connection.

"RIM is the Ghost of Christmas Past" Too funny. Easily my favorite.

We'll know by next year if RIM is the ghost of Xmas future as well. I'm interested to see if RIM can make a comeback with BB10.
