Default Aol. FAIL

Quote:
The whole AOL brand? It’s poison. So what’s AOL to do. Well, they’re kind of rebranding it. They’ll still use the letters a, o and l, but now it’ll be spelled like this. “Aol.” Period and all.

Tim Armstrong, chairman and chief executive at AOL, acknowledged that “there was a lot of feedback from people: should we even stick with the AOL brand?” Ultimately, though, testing said they should stick with it. “It is one of the most powerful brands on the planet, “Armstrong said, albeit one that “needs updating, that needs to work on products and services

I really don't even have anything to say about this.........

As an Aol. user I am quite annoyed by this new branding. Now whenever I refer to Aol. I will have to insert a pause. Aol. sucks.

>.> Seriously though, I am an Aol. user.

I have MANY reasons. Primarily because I have sentimental value to it. I've had this email account since the day I started using computers. I have a real email address I use for family and friends only that I don't let no one outside of that ring know. My AOL account is used for all my sign ups and online friends. I also have a hotmail account that I use for most of my sign ups and a junk yahoo account where I use to sign up for things I only plan on using once.

So, short and simple. I'm attached to my AOL account because I had it since day 1.

I'm getting over my fear Nick! I even thought about downloading Chrome OS! Besides like I said- I've been with AOL since day 1 of my computing history.

How could you even take them seriously?

Words can not describe the...I'm seriously considering ending my account.

It's like they're trying to copy Google's special logos and using irrelevant, unaesthetic graphics instead. I hope those are only programmers-graphics (Meaning sub-par graphics usually created by a programmer and obviously not a graphic designer).



EDIT:

I do however like the "." in the new Aol. for example, what looks better?
  • Aol.music
  • AOL Music
