For the first time in 60 years, Finnish tech multinational Nokia has changed its logo as it focuses on faster growth and signals a new strategy shift.
According to GSM Arena, a tech news-related website, this change comes after Pekka Lundmark took over Nokia's telecom equipment arm, the CEO laid out a three-phase plan - reset, accelerate and scale. The blue hue will no longer be used by Nokia; instead, it will be replaced with whichever shade is better fitting for the circumstance. As a result, no particular colour scheme has been assigned.
Lundmark said that Nokia is no longer just a smartphone company, but a "business technology company," reported GSM Arena.
Nokia will concentrate on selling equipment to other businesses in addition to expanding its telecom equipment business.
These include tools for automated manufacturing and private 5G networks, which would put the business in direct competition with Microsoft and Amazon in the market. Nokia is contemplating expanding and developing in further sectors, mentioned Lundmark, as per GSM Arena.
Google workplace apps getting a fresh new makeover
American tech multinational Google's Workspace apps are getting a makeover as the company plans to refresh the design of Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides in the coming weeks. According to The Verge, an American technology news website, Google is doing so to align with its Material Design 3 design system more closely, the company announced recently. For those familiar with Gmail's refreshed look, the new designs take a lot of cues from that. Google appears to be adding a few additional darker hues to areas like the toolbar and comments in order to help them stand out from a document's white page.
In contrast to the rectangle with rounded corners Google now employs for the 'Share' button, it is now more rounded. Further, Google is implementing a feature it mentioned in October: compatibility for third-party smart chips, reported The Verge.
In a manner similar to Notion and Coda, this might enable you to seamlessly incorporate third-party applications into your work.
These apps include Atlassian, Asana, Figma, Miro, Tableau, and ZenDesk and will become available in the "coming weeks."
It released some new smart chips of its own as well, such as stopwatch, emoji voting, calendar invite, and a useful date shortcut chip in Sheets, as well as stopwatch, emoji voting, and calendar invite chips for Docs, as per The Verge.
