One of the interesting things about Japan as a whole, and Akihabara in particular, is that character logos for a particular business don't need to relate to the product or service, as long as they're cute, and follow some expected theme. In this first photo, we've got a shop that sells air guns and used games. Can't beat cat maids for cuteness, anyway. Unfortunately, the URL seems to be broken - it results in page not found errors.
Even NEC's outlet store has gotten in on the maid gimmick for the character logo, but disappointingly there's no real maids in the store selling hardware.
