WTF were they thinking? Did they task a 5 year old to choose their new name?

You'd think so, but I'm sceptical any of that took place. The quality of the new brand makes me assume it was a product of the dreaded HiPPO. Highest Paid Person's Opinion.
and employee bonuses get sponged up by an expensive and unnecessary re-brand.

Whoever Hans is he must be brain dead to have approved this name change.

Well I wouldn't like to be the one facing all of this negativity after making a bold move like this, so all the best to them. Their service is what counts.
