Hamm's Beer and the East St Paul brewery were Midwest icons and many of us have vivid memories of their old ads and symbols.

What products or companies from the distant past are still burned into your brain?

Looking Glass Studio. They didn't make computer games. They made computer gaming. Then after the bubble burst, management decided they wanted control of their company and started firing people who made what they felt was too much money. Unfortunately this included a significant portion of their major programming talent. Not a smrat move.
