Actually, Apple sells (or at least used to) the logos as lapel pins,
which work fine for tie-tacks too. I've got a couple of different Apple
logo pins. (I've also got several very tiny combadge/insignia pins in
various styles from Star Trek that make great tie-tacks and lapel pins.
Good for double-takes from Trek fans!)

I work in a Windows and OpenVMS OS shop and have used mine the same way.
Even better is the gold Cross pen with the Apple logo on the clip into
which I've put a PDA stylus insert. I _always_ have that with me (it
writes better than the Newton 2100's built-in stylus).

Keep the Green! (and yellow and orange red and purple and blue....)
