Yahoo! stuck to its purple guns, evolving their sans serif font to what Mayer called a more "human form," and added a touch of "whimsy" to the whole thing by the tilting its now essential exclamation point. The Internet seems relatively nonplussed by the change so far. Well, most people of the Internet, that is. An unimpressed tech pundit Derek Pozawek tweeted, "It looks like a gravestone. It probably is." Ouch!Way harsh! But overall, the news is being met with far less hostility than the awkward moment the Yahoo! Tumblr takeover news broke. Personally, we think it's a fine change — temperate, functional, but not jaw-dropping. It's not trying to rock the design world to its foundations, but it's nice to look at over a second (or third) coffee, like we're doing right now.
