Noticed no one had posted about it yet.

Thoughts?

That's a pity - I had grown attached to the old QT logo. The price of progress, I suppose. After all, QT has been essentially re-written from the ground up. Still, if it ain't broken . . .

They could have made it 3D, but kept the blue and white colour scheme.

Personally I think it is ugly…
I didn't like the old one all that much, but I reckon it was better than this new one

I don't mind it. I quite liked the old logo, but my dock has so much blue in it, so it might break things up a little.

I'm not sure how I feel about the new floating controls in the actual player though.

I like the full window width timeline in QT7.

I love it, the old one is very dated.

Here's hoping they update the Safari icons some time, not a fan of that one either.

I want the purple glow to pulse. That would make it awesome.

I thought someone mentioned that "Pro" is gone from Snow on...? ie Pro is now standard.

Yeah. That seems to be the case.

I also love the new icon.

+1. Looks like balls when compared to the new Google Chrome or Firefox icons.

I don't get the need to switch everything from blue to gray, or the fascination with purple atm (or is it fashionation? :p).

It's alright, but I can't see any reference to "time" in the logo anymore, now the hand is just part of the \ on the Q.

The "big" hand... that's oversized for the clock face?

I liked the 4th one best (ie 1st of bottom row) from ParisHilton's list...

I like it. I assume that the design was inspired by the look of certain types of knobs on audio hardware. I think of it as a knob, not a clock. I might just be reading too much into it! :-)

I wouldn't count on this just yet. The new QT Player has some editing features, but there's a lot to QT Pro which wasn't shown or demonstrated. I expect there will still be a Pro for a price.

I like it. the 3D bulge of it mesmerises me.

That looks nice. I don't know, maybe it's the purple ball in the middle that puts me off it…

Agree. I think it is one step too simplified.

But I remember the uproar when the hourglass was replaced by the beachball. :cool:

There needs to be some major change in how all logo design is rendered, across the board - I mean, how much more 3D, vast drop shadow / shiny plastic can one extend out to?

It has a limit.
