Yahoo unveiled a new company logo last week, but a version from an intern that was rejected by higher-ups has leaked, and is seen by many as superior.

Yahoo Logo New

After the new logo (above) was revealed, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer personally thanked design intern Max Ma for his help crafting the new design.

But Ma may have had other ideas about the direction the web giant should take.

The intern previously hosted his alternative design on his personal website, according to Business Insider, but has since taken his site entirely offline.

Here's a look at the passed-over version you were never supposed to see:

Company loves its purple. Some tech bloggers say it's as good if not superior to the version Yahoo chose for its revamped website. Do you agree?

Which Yahoo logo do you like better?

"I would also like to mention that we LOVE our disabled daughter very much," Kelli, 45, posted in the online journal she titled "The Status Woe."

"But you should know that living with her is beyond horrific."

"There are screaming tantrums, property destruction, hitting, biting, pulling hair and kicking. It's always loud and we're always tensed up to take a blow."

Dennis Rodman returned from his second trip to North Korea and promptly revealed the name of dicator and friend Kim Jong Un's baby daughter.

The NBA Hall of Famer told The Guardian (UK) about a "relaxing time by the sea" spent with Kim and his family. And he also let slip the baby's name.

Speculation sprang up last year that Kim might be a dad after a photo showed his wife wearing a long coat that could have been hiding a bump.

North Korean authorities kept quiet about the matter, although Rodman confirmed Kim had a baby girl. Now after his return visit, he's got the name.

The flamboyant Rodman said, "I held their baby Ju Ae and spoke with Ms. Ri as well," referring to his wife and calling Kim Jong Un "a good dad."

In a dramatic new video, Matt Cordle gets right to the point:

He killed a man in a drunk-driving accident this June.

The 22-year old says those exact words in a video he posted September 3, saying he "takes full responsibility" for the actions that took 61-year old Vincent Canzani's life a few months ago.

Already a suspect for the incident - which took place on June 22 and which Cordle admits took place after a night of heavy drinking with friends - Cordle has not yet been charged with any crime, but says he is prepared to face whatever legal consequences come his way.

A sign company in Texas created quite a stir this week via its new marketing campaign.

As reported by KWTX in Waco, Hornet Signs had a female employee pose for a decal that shows her bound and seemingly abducted in the back of a pickup truck, proving to motorists just how realistic its decals can be.

Perhaps Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 are becoming obsolete? The birth rate among teenagers hit a record low in 2012, government research shows.

There is evidence that a trend of more effective means of birth control is a factor, according to the National Center for Health Statistics at the CDC.

Watching Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans can't hurt, either.

The birth rate among young women ages 15 to 19 fell 6 percent last year, to 29.4 births per thousand, the lowest rate in the 73 years of data collection.

The decline was across all racial and ethnic groups.

Schools in 19 states are weighing students and sending reports to their parents with their body mass index (BMI) and other measurements, reports say.

Kids have started calling the reports "fat letters."

Many families and health experts have started pushing back against the reports-slash-fat letters, arguing they could damage the children’s self-esteem.

Proponents say the practice is actually an effective progress report and a tool for establishing whether a student is healthy or unhealthy physically.

A person’s BMI is calculated by dividing their weight by the square of their height, then applied to their age and gender and measured against peers.

While rushing to the hospital at 80 m.p.h., a Georgia mom delivered her baby in the front seat of the car, literally catching her inside the dress she had on.

She then tried to hide this fact so her husband, who was driving at breakneck speeds to the ER, wouldn't freak out and inadvertently wreck the car.

Katrena Leonard admits she probably waited a bit too long to head to the hospital and even scolding her newborn, "Kylie (the new baby's name), no!"

Her baby daughter, Leonard's third child, clearly had her own schedule as far as making a grand entrance into the world in the passenger seat.

Mom's wishes? Not high on Kylie's priority list.
