Commodore scrapped the “new” italicized chicken head logo in favour of the original.
You can see the new corporate site at www.commodore-int.com; an URL which promotes the “Commodore International” heritage. www.commodoreworld.net seems to be dead (although for now it redirects to the new URL).
The new blog site is http://www.channel64.net/ which should be up and running in a few weeks and the music store should be back on-line soon.
These changes represent not so much a re-branding but a correction to the branding. The are superficial, but important and with a new push out of the European market could help make Commodore a world brand again.
New premium CE products will be shown at IFA in September but the blog site contains some early pre-release discussions pertaining to them.
Overall this is a notable improvement and I hope that the new look, combined with the new products, produce some new energy to advance this once great entity.
