I never really understood the concept behind this logo (the past ones were much stronger). So given the slight awkwardness right off the bat, I must say in the 1-color version there is something compelling with the strong contrast of arcing and intersecting lines slicing through the solid sphere (though it does take on a different feel than the color version). When scaled down, those lines blur into each other a bit much, making it harder to recognize.
