Over in Acer HQ, it's out with the old
and in with the new. Having bid ciao
to former CEO Gianfranco Lanci, the Taiwanese company is now slapping a fresh coat of paint and a softer typeface upon its corporate identity. The new Acer green is lighter and brighter and the more rounded new shape looks a lot safer for kids to play around with, should the occasion ever arise. We doubt this will make a big difference in the company's push to be "more like Apple
," but hey, at least we now have a visual marker to distinguish the products that came before this shift in strategy from those that come after.
