If you look at fonts: characters in a font aren't all straight either; 
they bend a bit (so that is more than just round corners) and this makes 
them a lot more interesting. Various levels of bendiness yield various 
levels of "playfulness". While I already like this logo a lot, I think 
it could be improved a lot more by making it more "fonty". Note that I'm 
not saying it should be a very playful logo, just a more fonty one... yeah.
