    Apologies if i`m reposting , but not sure if my earlier comment got posted properly :

    2 is the logo of Acorn Computers, whose Proton series became very popular after being selected as the official
    “BBC Micro” system, as featured on their popular BBC Computer Literacy Project ( whose logo was 1).
    The tons of money thus made were used to diversify Acorn into RISC Machines – which eventually became ARM.

    1 is the logo for BBC Micro series of computers, part of the BBC Computer Literacy Project
    2 is a pic of an acorn.
    The micros were made by a company called Acorn Computers.

    The owl is the logo of the BBC’s Computer Literacy Project which used computers produced by Acorn Computers. The second visual is that of an acorn.
