It's... classier. Chrome makes me think 'cheap' and 'tacky' like some taiwanese electronics with chromed plastics on them.I vote for solid color apple logos without bevelled edges.PS why is spellcheck underlining 'unoffensive' above? Is that not the correct spelling?! Reply 2 of 10 blueflame Posts: 89member September 29, 2003 2:21AM Quote:Originally posted by 1337_5L4Xx0R PS why is spellcheck underlining 'unoffensive' above?

It's everywhere and looks similar to the "new" not yet announced and therefore not "official" one.

It's everywhere and looks similar to the "new" not yet announced and therefore not "official" one. What do you want an official press brief? It's in and its official it'll be "in the new boot-up splash screen, then the login dialog box." What's not known is "whether Apple will adopt the new silver logo for product design, as well as marketing and packaging, or simply restrict it to the new software." It's all in the article. Blah! Reply 6 of 10 dfiler Posts: 3,420member September 29, 2003 5:58PM The logo has been in constant flux for quite a while now.The apple on the side of my G4 is grey...It's white on many powerbooks...It's blue on my current menu bar but it was once red, black, and even rainbowed for a while...It's light grey on the iSight...Reflective on the iLamp...... and colored on the fruits.So yeah, it's official. It is also official that the sky is blue.

It's still the Apple logo shape and it's gone through the plastic look, the "iLook", some gel, etc. Now it looks a bit like chrome.That's all.I like it. A nice twist/update on a familiar shape.And in another year or two, it might be something else.
