    A company (I am not affiliated with) is re-branding their logo and will give away $100,000 or a Tesla Model S just by voting for the logo you like best. The catch is they need to get 100,000 votes before Jan. 29th. You can only vote once but hopefully a Tesla lover will win.
    Enjoy!

    Hate to burst your bubble but the sweepstake isn't valid in Australia. Or in FL, NY, RI and Quebec. It's in the rules.

    Voted for 3rd from left. I invested a little in Extreme networks 10 years ago but got out after a year or so, losing a little bit of money. Maybe my investment will pay off this time!

    Voted, but none of those choices are particularly appealing. Didn't have to provide too much info -- they made it pretty easy to vote.

    I have not heard much from Extreme since my last job where I used them daily that being said, I agree but coming from their previous logo they are pretty decent.

    Seriously? Sounds like a scam. The last thing I need is to visit some website and have my computer infected with malware.

    It's amazing you use the internet at all with that level of paranoia.

    I voted for the 3rd one. :)

    Extreme Networks is a legit company. That's doesn't mean the social marketing company that is running this promo for them might not have issues, but then any website could have those same issues these days.

    I didn't really care for any of them. 2nd one you couldn't tell it was an E. 3rd one looked like someone else's logo (probably was Enron's that I was thinking of as FlasherZ pointed out). 4th just didn't seem to fit with their product line. So guess which one I picked.

    Unfortunately, I have to agree it was the least worst option. Definitely not one of them screamed "Pick Me!".

    I don't think it's a scam, it's an effective way of building a mailing list. Remember they have to reach 100,000 folks before the big prize is activated, but in any case those all contact details will keep your local mailman (or woman) employed delivering junk mail for years to come. ;-)
