The hyphen and the star are going, going, and soon (this fall) to be gone.
I like it. The only thing I don't like is that, if they really are doing away with the hyphen, I'll have to go back and change all the tags on "Wal-Mart" articles to "Walmart".
Important question: Is the yellow thing a star (harkening back to the old logo) or, as I've seen it described, a sunburst, a flower, or an asterisk? For now, I'll stay with "yellow thing".
