They could use a more friendly logo. The current one looks... I dunno... too industrial?

It seems kind of weird to have LG stand for Lucky Goldstar, and their motto being 'Life's Good' with a winking face when their logo looks so... bold?

The 'G' is becoming a little to much.
Samsung has the S, Apple has the 'i', Sony has 'everything' and now LG has the 'G'... Why are manufacturers so into that kind of stuff?

A certain streamlining of services isn't such a bad thing. Even Google does it with Play Books, Music etc. and Microsoft now, with Xbox Music, Movies...

What I do find funny though is that they decided to use 'Hub'... just pull out a thesaurus man!

It's basically Samsung, down to their watered down TouchWiz UI. Their recent Optimus/G series phones even imitate the design language of Galaxy S series. They're now looking to do similar dubbing of their proprietary software it seems as well.
