Google Has a New Logo and We All Have a Lot of Work to Do

Google has a new logo and it’s exhausting. Not the logo itself, mind you. But I’ll get to that in a minute. Google’s products — and the devices with which we use those products — have evolved drastically since 1998. It’s simply not the same company anymore.
