Question Who likes the new Google Maps logo?

Have you guys seen the new Google Maps logo? What do u think of it?

My thoughts - they could have put a bit more thought into it... reactions in our office have ranged from "what's that?" and "is that a badly drawn map of London?" to "looks like a splat of paint"!

Actually, it's Asia and not London.

I thought it looked like a lamp

Not really. It looks OK but could be better IMO.

Talk of irony!!!

They create the logo for Geography Awareness week and use a "map of Asia" that is NOT a map of Asia at all!!!

Whatever happened to India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and the entire Middle East? Last I checked they were also in Asia, but are not on Google's "map of Asia"

Just to follow up, it looks like the logo is back to "normal" again.
