Airbnb's new brand identity seems to have a lot of people scratching their heads.Airbnb's new brand identity seems to have a lot of people scratching their heads.

If you hadn't seen it already, Airbnb has a brand new look and feel along with a brand new logo called The Bélo. The new mark, which is supposed to convey belonging, has instead become an Internet parody due to it's multiple similarities to certain obvious human anatomy. Personally, I see the planchette from a Ouiji board. The rest of you need to get your mind out of the gutter.

Five things that will make you want the new Barnes & Noble E-Reader.Five things that will make you want the new Barnes & Noble E-Reader.

I'm not in the market for an e-reader gadget but this thing looks really cool and it's way more attractive than Amazon's Kindle in terms of aesthetics. Overall it's a very surprising and pleasant effort from the folks at Barnes and Noble - and the price ain't too shabby either. Who wants to share some books with me?

I'll have to try this one out today so if you see a lame GLM app on Facebook later today don't be surprised. Maybe people would comment more if I integrated directly with Facebook Connect. Yay or nay?
