Technology changes so fast that even the largest tech companies have to constantly change itself to stay alive.
That means they often have to revamp their logos to create a fresher look and image.
In fact, some of the largest tech companies’ logos have changed so much, you won’t even recognise their original brands.
Apple's 'rainbow apple' left a strong impression in 1977, but the company took a more simplified approach for a white, 3D logo in 2007.
Samsung started out as a noodle shop, so its first logo looks a bit non-techie, but it eventually switched to its famous blue logo in 1993.
Microsoft changed its logo almost every decade, from a trendy round shaped font to something that stresses its Windows product line.
AT&T's first logo spelled out 'long distance calling,' but now it simply features a blue orbit, a representation of its global reach.
