I think it's a nice updated 2010 look although not sure about the new font.

I'm with BKC, screw the silly logo and how about getting the audio drop outs fixed. That would be something new and improved for 2010.

Looks more "3D-ish", which is one of their new focuses until the fad goes away.

Looks like two pieces of transparent blue plastic on a white background.

Fits in with the latest classes of logos, but theres more important stuff to worry about. I guess the ad department needed to feel like it was doing something.

Well I guess its one step closer to a updated gui. I can see it now, dark blue for the main color. Wasn't the guild a dark blue a while back?

The logo looks interesting...maybe you're right dpeters11 it may be 3D.

I like the entire website though, they have done a good job keeping it fresh.

I would have preferred a logo like this. Gap isn't using it anymore so maybe DirecTV can. ;):lol::P

I'd rather an updated GUI (HD)
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction.

Thumbs up to the graphic, thumbs down to the font.

It looks like the same font. I think they just decreased the letting in the wording.

I really don't care which one they use. I don't care which logo The Gap uses either (and can't understand why it became such a big deal). :lol:
