So we have that already. What am I missing? <>

Oh, I need to add one that's just brilliant.

The Aqualung i770R identifies itself as "FQ012345" where the numbers are it's serial number.
Isn't that brilliant? I mean, once you realize that "FQ" is encoded as 0x4651 and once you know that that's the internal model number of the i770R. 
I mean, it doesn't get more intuitive than that...
(thanks to Jef for explaining this to me...)
