They're not quite the same, actually. One is white, and the other is orange.

Both Automation Anywhere and Airbnb commented on the issue. http://valleywag.gawker.com/airbnbs-new-logo-is-a-vagina-ripoff-of-another-companys-1606183654
Wow, i am relieved I am not the only one thinking it looked like a vagina. I told that at my office and got "you pervert" looks from everyone.
In early 2014 both Airbnb and Automation Anywhere began use of new logos
Automation had their new logo in March/April, I certainly don't call the middle of July "early 2014".
AirBnB is about being "anywhere", I wonder if there was something subliminal about one of the designers seeing automation anywhere's logo in the past. Not realizing they were associating both the word "anywhere" with the logo is unpredictable. I'm just speculating.
Airbnb and Automation Anywhere sent this joint statement to VentureBeat:
"In early 2014 both Airbnb and Automation Anywhere began use of new logos that, by coincidence, have similar designs. Airbnb and Automation Anywhere are working cooperatively to address this issue, and Automation Anywhere is in the process of transitioning to a new logo design that is not similar to the Airbnb logo."
How much money did AirBnB pay Automation Anywhere to get them to change their logo after 4 months?
this must be great for automation anywhere... so much press!
Haha oh sh**.
Those balls are not smooth at all
