Yahoo! redesigns their logo

Last few times I logged in to my yahoo the logo looked different. So I decided to do some digging. As it turned out yahoo redesigns its logo for the first time since 1990. They are presenting  the new logo design everyday for 30 days untill the big final reveal on September 5th

Here is an old design:

I think I favor the day 6 design:




So far all the logos have the exclamation point.

I wonder if it is part of the big changes that came with Yahoos new CEO, Marissa Mayer. She acquired Tumblr. She stir the waters by canceling telecommuting to work option for their workers. But my personal favorite - she changed  maternity leave policy by giving the new moms twice longer paid maternity leave, 8 weeks off for dads, and cash bonus to parents.  Go Marissa!
