Most of you have probably seen the new Google logo unveiled today. I for one like it. What do you think of this new look?

    It's ok. Nothing groundbreaking ... unless you work for Google.

          I'm easily amused - I like the little hand that comes up and adjusts the "e" just so.

          Other than that - don't much care. Google owns it so they can play all they want.

            Have you tried the new...

            Claude

            Search engine?

            I think the answers are a little opinionated.

            Type in Example's:

            Q: What is the smallest thing known to man.

            A: Dan Riffle.

            Q: What is the smallest Recorded Brain size?

            A: Kurt.

            I never got a straight answer to anything, just those 2 names????

        Nothing Google has ever done can be considered fancy. Have you seen a Google party where they all wear the same blue shirt and brown khakis? That's Google. Geeky and understated.

    Bet they paid 10k for a guy in Photoshop to adjust the font.

    It's a little creepy, just how child-like and adorable they're trying to look these days.

      This. lol. Google has changed it's logo five times now and it still looks the same. If they didn't tell people they had a new logo, very few would even notice.

        Funny. I don't don't care about Google but an exceptional logo can end up having very powerful marketing powers.

        What do I think?

        Finally went from serif to sans serif. I hate serif fonts.

        Finally got rid of that second squiggly g that did not even fit with the rest of the letters.

        I think it is an upgrade but that does not say much. It is still ugly, boring, too many colors and can barely even be called a logo. The animated version is a little better just because it has some creativity but I think it will get dull after seeing it only a few times.

    I like its favico logo, but the search engine logo looks much too simple. Childish, almost. And with a bunch of Os sitting between "G" & "g," I start thinking about Sesame Street.

      You're probably right but the more I see it on a desktop, the less I like it. The font is just too heavy. I never noticed anything wrong looking about the logo on a mobile to start with. It looked fine.

  • Maybe we'll figure this when we get schwumpted again sometime in 2020 after the next ten Googilloes.

    Way I see it, this is either blatant manipulo-zonks, or we're all being held hostage to utterest fortune.

    What's exciting for me, having grown up with Google, is how it's reading Big Ole Masterful right now, just like how your mom hit on The Cure or Stallone or Cobain but then the whole planet flipped on over and now it's gone all...uhm...Kanye West.

    Tellya, Smells Like Teen Spirit sounds real weird good when you're loopin' around in a Pocahontas tee, but Cobain got himself snuffed, and Google is gonna get snuffed, and when it does, we'll all have our own stories of why it was inevitable, and how we figured all along, but until then, let's just watch the only lights flashin' before our eyes flash on, on, on, on, HERE WE ARE, NOW, ENTERTAIN US, till they're gone.

    Then maybe we can try Ebaying the whole Google wardrobe for like 5 bucks, if'n we ain't struck out on the next grippin' schwahoozle...
