    On Tuesday April 24th at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi will unveil the new Uber logo. It has been well received by Uber employees at Uber headquarters in San Francisco who've seen the updated logo. While the iconic U will still remain, the border around the U will be drastically more pronounced and in addition the current grey color scheme has been darkened to a charcoal grey giving it a far richer presence.

    For employees and driver partners in attendance there will be three breakout sessions with speakers from the graphics team. Driver partners will be receiving the link to the live webcast in the next few days. This is but one of the many improvements enhancing the Uber driver experience coming this year.

    I'll bet my tinfoil hat that there's some evil nanotech built into these new emblems.

    Another exciting uber unveiling so soon after the new app. Dara must be working 24/7 to turn this company around. My mind is whirling in anticipation of this new logo.

    Another clear symptom of Uber having hundreds of people making big salaries but doing useless work.

    When you pay hundreds of engineers to take care of your app, they make a new app. They have to do SOMETHING or they're out of a job. When you pay designers to work on your branding, they develop new names and logos. They have to do SOMETHING or they're out of a job.

    And this is NOT how you turn a company around. It's how you run a company aground.

    I wonder how much money Uber wasted on the redesign.

    Seems a lot of IT guys, not just Uber, do change for the sake of change, not for improvement. Must be job security.

    Yeah, as if they had a friggin' choice in the matter, or would dare say anything negative?

    Way to keep your eye on the ball there, Mr CEO. What a dip****.

    The other amusing thing about this is that they just started mass distribution of Uber Beacons in NYC, SFO, and Chicagoland, and they also did a big mailing of the window sticker to those drivers who don't have Beacons. What are we supposed to do with all that junk now?

    Or maybe...the "new" logo IS the Beacon design, and the NYC event is really just to hype expansion of Beacons to New York.

    Who knows? It's Uber. It's not supposed to make any sense.

    It's very hurtful that they moved this post from news to stories. I'm not saying it's unwarranted, just very hurtful.

    I just hope that they are able to change the logo in the new app! I would hate for them to have to come out with a new announcement that the app has been updated to improve it to the level of graphical design masterpiece.

    "Enhance the Uber driving experience"? What a load of horse #$^% My experience would be enhanced with more money.

    While your reportage qualifies as news, this predictably inane announcement by Uber calls for a fitting new forum bearing the title "drivel".
