After its 30 Days of Change campaign, which featured one variation of its new logo each day for 30 days, Yahoo has finally released its real new logo.
The new version is a refreshing take on the Yahoo brand, ditching the former’s serif font for a cleaner, more symmetrical type, sans serif. Check it out:
Marissa Mayer, president and CEO of Yahoo, seems pleased with the new logo. She worked hands-on with Yahoo’s logo design team over one weekend to design the logo from start to finish. Mayer wrote on her Tumblr,
We knew we wanted a logo that reflected Yahoo – whimsical, yet sophisticated. Modern and fresh, with a nod to our history. Having a human touch, personal. Proud.”

Several years ago, my son was going through a dinosaur phase. He was obsessed with anything and everything about pre-historic life. He wasn’t quite able to read yet, so it fell to me to pronounce words like sinosauropteryx, pachycephalosaurus, and eustreptospondylus when we read his books.
Dinosaur names can certainly be a mouthful, but learning to pronounce them gave me a new appreciation for phonetics.
Inspired by all this prehistoric nomenclature, I compiled a list of words that are fun to say (dinosaur names not included).
Have some fun pronouncing them on your own, especially the unfamiliar ones. Then click on the word for an audible pronunciation. (Definitions and pronunciations are from Merriam-Webster and Dictionary.com.)
