Check out the page at:


And you'll see that Swatch has _already_ slapped their corporate logo over
their futuristic-looking computer graphic images of the "Beatnik" on their
web site.  Even though _we_ know that these pictures are somewhat
different from the appearance of the actual sat, the public doesn't.

As far as the public is concerned, those logos might as well be all over
the satellite, since Swatch has never mentioned anyone else having
participated in the process of building it.
