Geeky cake trend jumps into the Ocean

Let them eat (Helio) cake.

OK, I really want to know who has this kind of time to spend making these geeky cakes we've been seeing a lot of recently. Apparently, a GeekSugar reader made it for her boyfriend. (Is that the kind of domestic dedication required these days? If so, somebody please get me to a nunnery.) But as a Helio user myself, I acknowledge and appreciate the somewhat cult-like nature of our little MVNO. Cakes, apparently, are the cool way to express that these days.

My verdict: Nice effort. Beautiful, uh, cakesmanship. But I'll stick to my "real" Ocean; it has fewer calories.
