I am in Hamburg to meet with customers - my first visit to this
city. I finally ate a Hamburger in Hamburg! Previously, I have eaten a
Frankfurter in Frankfurt, Peking Duck in Peking (Beijing), Buffalo
Wings in Buffalo, Philly Cheesesteak in Philly (actually quite a few,
considering I went to college there!), London Broil in London, and
Parmigiano cheese in Parma. To complete my food city journey, I just
now need to have some Genoa Salami in Genoa. I am really looking
forward to that!
Given I am in Germany, it is no surprise that I see T-Mobile
advertisements everywhere. In fact, if I see that magenta color anymore
I will start to see yellow. Which reminds me, in my blog last week, I
was talking about pricing for mobile plans and I visited the T-Mobile site.
On the site, that magenta color is significant and in fact, it is a
registered trademark (I cut a part of the legal language below). It's
highlighted, but I did not dare highlight in magenta since, I don't
know, maybe I can't.
T-Mobile and the magenta color are federally registered trademarks of Deutsche Telekom AG.

But back to T-Mobile in Germany. On October 2, they ended a
year-long promotion offering free on-network video calls. I've been an
advocate of mobile video for a long time and I have to say that's an
excellent promotion to help spur video calling.
