are being used in conjunction with the imagery due solely to the "hipness" connection (and designers needing to cash in on that)?

Plenty.

Get a lyft to go in circles?

Saw this same thing on a bus stop across the street from work. It's been there a few weeks. I wasn't too crazy about it at first either. The more I think about it the more I accept it. If a kid sees it and asks a knowing parent, then maybe a seed will be planted for a future audio person. Also I'd like to think that people will know what a record is for a long time to come.

Unfortunately the younger folks don't have any exposure to high end systems, so won't really hear/appreciate a difference. That relegates vinyl to the hipness factor with the younger folks. We need to expose them to real high end audio, then find the same track on vinyl and MP3 so they can A/B the difference.

but hip so SOMEONE thinks that's OK.

Of course what does one expect from a company called "LYFT"?

They'll b swallowed up by a bigger fish doing the same thing in 2017.

Lyft is valued at $5 billion. They're fine. Furthermore, this blanket dismissal of companies that use vinyl iconography is pointless. Who cares? It's a timeless image.
