Attack of the iClone Daily Double: WinMo 6.5 Phone iCon Looks Strangely Familiar...

One of these things is just like the other; one of these things is exactly the same...

Wow, we just got through listing the various ways Micrsoft is iCloning our beloved iPhone and its services, and now this? Bad enough they've taken the old hex grid from our AD&D days, but the iPhone Phone App, all green and rounded and gradient like?

We've got to think this is some customized icon, like a contact photo or something, because there's no way Microsoft includes it in even an official beta build, is there? Still, having Apple's graphics highlighting the latest viral Windows Mobile 6.5 leaks can't be good for anybody. Ugh.

Speaking of ugh, bonus points to anyone who can tell us what that background picture is before it hatches baby aliens and begins consuming us all...

I don't think that picture is real. Why is there a giant X in the top right corner? Looks totally out of place.

It looks like a pair of sunglasses with an alligator clip attached to the nose bridge and it is conducting electricity????
Ps love this site. Keep up the good work!!

It looks like an image someone made by combining different elements we would waste our time analyzing and discussing what the hell it's supposed to be. :lol:
