I was looking for a t-shirt which said: "My phone is smarter than your iPhone", but then I got to thinking:
1. People get mugged for iPhones.
2. I'd be a bigger mugging target.
I was actually surprised I had such a hard time finding such a shirt anyway. The cafe press site was cluttered with unrelated android gear, and android swag didn't have much of a selection.
Any particularly funny android shirts anywhere?

I think I would stop talking to anyone that conversed with me, via text messaging, with a long signature like that or any other for that matter. Most of those signatures would most certainly create multiple text messages, since messages are limited to 160 characters each. And as a recipient, I don't need to know that info. Now, when I'm emailing a certain individual over at TiPB, it's another story

For text messages, sigs are a little weird. I mean, why? text is supposed to be informal, quick communication.
In regard to emails, my sig is, "Sent from my wireless device". This has been my sig for my Palm, my WinMo, and all the other phones I had. I don't find it necessary--especially my professional contacts--for people to know what iteration of what device I'm using. If they want to know that, they can look at facebook and see the "posted from my Android device" thingie that shows up next to my wall updates.
I'm right in between those generations where email--or any written correspondence--is a semi-formal excercise with an introduction, body, and sign-off sections, and the other iGeneration that write me emails with "lol cu later" that is "Sent from my iMustHavePhone". So, I feel it's courtesy, at least for old curmudgeons in their 30s like me, to announce that any terse or impolite seeming email is probably due to the fact it is "Sent from my wireless device" I feel it's a little obnoxious to use it as an epeen feature and broadcast some propaganda about the device I'm using.

On top of the fact that signatures drive me nuts in text messages, what's even more frustrating is when someone posts a status on Facebook or Twitter via Text Message and I constantly see "/n" and then whatever their signature is at the end of their status. GRAHHH!!!

Everyone knows you're on a mobile device for texting, and my God, if you have a text message length's worth of a signature you have issues far more worrisome than this.....lol
Handcent lets you custom your sig for everyone... some get "xo" from me, or just the first letter of my name.
