Looks like the ad execs over at Mead Corp. thought they would give the ol' Injun a rest and introduce a more cool and hip tablet that would appeal to us 70's kids - something along the line of Peter Max's pop art with black light poster appeal. I really like what they did with the first version... . Version 1: Cool, renegade biker look complete with shades, stache and peace sign - very Peter Fonda in Easy Rider. But then Mead must of gotten some heat so they dumb-ied down the "son" and went to... Version 2: Not nearly as cool and renegade - the "son" looses his shades and his peace sign medallion.(please tell me what could possibly have been a problem with peace?Â Too political?) But obviously things still weren't dumb-ied enough so they stripped the poor "son" down to... Version 3: No facial hair, no political agenda, and no fun. .
