New Starbucks' logo - Do you like it?

Starbucks' 2011 new logo
Starbucks, famously known for its coffee, doesn’t want to be known for selling just coffee anymore. It had yesterday announced dropping the words “Starbucks Coffee” from its famous, circular green logo. In its place will be Starbucks’ mermaid, or “Siren” icon.

I personally do not like the new design for it seems to be missing the attachment with customers. Quoted from a comment posted on Starbucks' blog post, it said, "Who's the bonehead in your marketing department that removed the world-famous name of Starbucks Coffee from your new logo? This gold card user isn't impressed!".

Starbucks’ logo change comes about three months after clothing retailer Gap Inc.’s rebranding fiasco. In that incident, customers were displeased with the new design and a social media storm soon ignited. Gap had little choice but to revert back to the original logo. Will Starbucks' change spark a similar backlash?

Starbucks, at moment, is keeping its cool. The company posted a detailed blog post and video from its CEO, Schultz, communicating the changes yesterday. That video is embedded below.

Google Suggestion "where is" - Najib, Rosmah - Malaysia GE17

The 14th Malaysian general election held on 9 May 2018 had concluded with the incumbent Barison Nasional (BN) voted out and Najib losing his Prime Minister position.

So where exactly is Najib and his wife Rosmah? Even Google is showing the below when I type "where is". I bet many people are now searching for this.
