Amazon Shopping app's icon changed to look less like Hitler

Recommended Posts

So... Amazon redesigned the icon for their Amazon Shopping smartphone app to look like a box with blue tape on top. They removed the shopping cart and the word "Amazon," leaving just the smile and blue tape.


The original redesign had complaints that the blue tape looked like a Hitler mustache, leading to a quiet redesign of the redesign where the tape has a fold in the corner.

The old "new" icon is on the left, the update is on the right.

We really are living in an Onion world.


The new one looks like a sticky note or tab more than packaging tape.  But I guess at least it appeases the Godwin's law enthusiasts 


FAKE EDIT: I guess since we are trying hard to find things in places
