Congratulations on turning 20 years old! In the fast-moving world of the information industry, it's impressive how you've continued to stay at the forefront for 20 years now. My heartfelt congratulations go out to you.
Although this is celebration where we should be giving presents to Docomo, Docomo flipped this around and is giving presents to all of us. When I heard we'd be getting a free Docomo Thanks Campaign wallpaper, I was literally jumping around the office out of elation.
So let's give it a download and see what kind of present Docomo gave us:
A cartoonified cross between Japanese rock start Keisuke Kuwata and a mushroom saunters across the screen. And that's it.
But if you think about it, this might be exactly what they're going for; this may be the work of some stylistic genius. The pure zen of it all is their ultimate achievement.
This wallpaper has its sights set on the perfect amalgam of Steve Jobsian minimalism and the Buddhist mantra of "form is emptiness." A man of simple tastes such as myself naturally lacks the refined sensibilities required to fully appreciate the craftsmanship and philosophical ardor of that constitute this landmark accomplishment in live wallpaper-dom.
Our thanks for 20 years,
please enjoy our Docomo Thanks Campaign Original Live Wallpaper.
That's the entire app description. A strong statement that flies in the face of flowery language and extraneous explanation. People such as myself who make their living through the written word have much to learn from the stylistic demagogues at Docomo.
So again, Docomo, my sincerest congratulations on 20 long and prosperous years. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
