What If Other Companies Redesigned Their Logos Like Microsoft? (PICTURES)

Microsoft unveiled its new logo yesterday, to a mixed response. While it's cleaner and arguably more 'modern' than its 25-year-old veteran brand identity, it's also a little too post-modern - or just a bit too square for many tastes.

It's also inspired more than a few parodies in the 24 hours since its launch.

Take this Tumblr user (first by The Verge) who took it upon himself to redesign the logos of other famous tech companies in the same manner as Microsoft.

He even branched out and turned his talents to the London Olympics' much-derided (and in some quarters despised) logo.

Take a look - and let us know which of them you actually prefer to the originals.
