Think Different – Rosa Parks

Apple.com Rosa Parks TributeIn a Google-like tribute, Apple.com’s front page pays homage to Rosa Parks, following her passing. Click the image to read about her and the life she led.

While I love the gesture (and really do think it’s well-done), I can’t help but feel that Apple’s inclusion of their “Think Different” branding on the image sours it a bit with a marketing slant. I know, Apple’s paying their respects and embracing her, as they both ‘Think Different’. I get that. But to me, it almost feels as if they’re claiming her with that slogan…

Does it cheapen the tribute in your eyes? Let me know your thoughts on the subject.
