Deutsche Telekom / T-Mobile demands Engadget Mobile discontinue using the color magenta

Yeah, a cease and desist letter is one way to “open up a dialog.” But doing that with a top blog such as Engadget, you might not open up quite the dialog you were looking for.

UPDATE:  As of April 3, [2008,] T-Mobile has taken no further action.
