Anyhoo, unless someone has beaten me to it in a post I havent read yet, I declare the short form of their name on all internet forums from this day forward, to be "2D".

Wow, that's one hideous website and logo. $250m spent and they didn't have a few grand left over to do anything decent with the marketing? :P

Fully agreed - being a low value competitor doesn't mean you have to have a crap looking brand. God that's horrible lol. It looks good on the blue background but on the white... THey surely would have though of that?!

I don't think it looks all that bad, It' screams "o2" and "3" but it's quite funky. I do think the actual logo could have been rendered a little better (looks like phong render almost)
