Dunkin Donuts puts Vine on TV with first Vined commercial

So finally, the 30 days of change it took Yahoo to dance around like an extended drumroll before revealing their new logo is over. And it paid off! Never before have people talked so much about logo switching from purple & exclamation-mark 90s irregularly sized letters to purple & exclamation-mark embossed irregularly sized Optima as they did today.

Android Kitkat - The cobranded future of confectionery & Android 4.4

The next version of Android is called Android Kitkat, in a co-branding move with the Nestlé snack. This is why you currently see a giant chocolate Android made by Themendous on the lawn in front of one of the Google Buildings. @Themendous also sent us this image of the Android Kitkat 'baking', and don't you wish that was all chocolate?
