AlcaLu Blue

11:30 AM -- Hey, the new Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) logo doesn't suck.

It's supposed to be a combination of an "A" and an "L," but it looks more like a plain old "A" to me. Are they trying to tell us something?

In unrelated and unimportant (but amusing) news, the Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) stock pages are erroneously listing Nortel Networks Ltd. shares as up 900 percent today. A reverse split'll do that. (See Nortel Implements Split .)

re: AlcaLu Blue Does the term Lissajous make anyone else smile with nostalgia?

re: AlcaLu Blue I'm having a flashback to EE 2003 lab. Something having to do with an oscilliscope, a signal generator, and some resistors, capacitors and inductors....

re: AlcaLu Blue I think it's a huge step up from the red coffee mug stain.

The companyGÇÖs new logo is a stylized version of an infinity symbol that looks as if it were drawn by hand. Embedded within the symbol is an A and an L. It is both fluid and infinite. The signature color of the new logo is purple, a bold color that symbolizes ambition and is also associated with creativity, wisdom and dignity.

re: AlcaLu Blue Come on Craig, get it right. Blue is cold... purple is warm, inviting and creative.

Oh and BTW, as far as the logo, I see an L with a fancy top.

re: AlcaLu Blue Purple is also the color for sexual frustration.

I don't know about the sex, but I'm sure there's plenty of frustration...

I've heard Lucent employees refer to the old logo as the "flaming red a-hole". Looks like a big improvement to me. Question is... how much was someone overpaid to come up with this one as well?

Thanks for sharing. That was my impression when seeing it for the first time. Of course, the infinity sign is also a figure eight. Perhaps the new logo also implies "behind the 8 ball." ;)
