Your logo (10) brings the message across very well. I agree on all points and 
recognize them in your logo. 

Most things I can read from logo 2 as well, except for the Neo-shaped rocket. 

Those two actuall were my choices.

I can imagine something :-)

Yes, indeed. Some of the logos look very dynamic as long as all details are 
clearly visible, but need more attention before they are recognized.

I like it :-) Two minor points of critisism: I think the gradients are taking 
away from the KISS-principle. The brownish/golden logo got glowing letters; 
have you tried one-directional glow, as if there's only light shining one side 
(or, as if there's only neon on one side); probably under the same angle as 
the phone cover is under the motherboard? I think it might connect the image 
and the letters (no drop shadows; that would overdo it). Hm... That's a bit 
more text than I expected for a minor point ;-)

Best regards,
