A Bit of SoftBank+Sprint Humor

Recommended Posts

As folks have been coming up with suggested names for the Sprint subsidiary of SoftBank I immediately came up with simply combining the two names into one... SPrint+softbANK=SPANK.*

 

Ok, ok, *I* thought it was funny.

 

Taking that theme a bit farther I felt I should combine the SoftBank and Sprint logos for a combined look...

Someone else suggested that they need to bring back Mr. Baker (Sprint's "Overcoat Guy") to push the new company, and going with that I thought a proper combination might be Overcoat Guy, Otosan (the SoftBank dog) and the new logo...

Once I saw that, I suddenly realized it reminded me of an image that stuck in my mind from the announcement presentation live from Tokyo the other morning with Masayoshi Son (SoftBank CEO) and Dan Hesse (Sprint CEO) shaking hands on-stage...

I don't know, maybe it was just me.

 

Thought I'd share it anyway.

 

 

* As it stands right now it appears the "New Sprint" Holding company will be formed with Sprint as a subsidiary.

Dan Hesse, a physical giant. Yet, in the announcement, Mr. Son overshadowed Dan...immeasurably. He was so aggressive. I liked it. ;)

Absolutely! Son san has an amazing "presence" and tends to dominate a group easily. Very dynamic leader is my impression.

Hey Tomas, can I use the Spank logo? I'm making a Sprint/Softbank rage comic and I was wondering if I can use it for my comic.

    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
