Like the lower back tattoo you got in college, everyone's been hoping that those mandated symbols on the bottom of your gadgets will just go away. Thankfully, the E-Label act has now been signed into law by President Obama, enabling gadget manufacturers to display those symbols electronically. At some point in the future, therefore, new devices are going to get a lot cleaner, with the FCC logo and that weird instruction not to throw your bin in the trash tucked away somewhere in a settings menu. Of course, the CE logo - for products cleared for sale in Europe - will probably remain, but we can worry about that once we've saved up for the laser surgery.
