I woke up this morning to discover that someone stole my Yahoo! during the night. It's been replaced with a new and improved version. People at Yahoo!, here's a little friendly advice-if I have to stare at my screen a full 15 second before I figure out where my mail button is, that is not an improvement.
Tack that onto the 'improvements' over at the apple store. I popped in the other day to add a song into my iTunes library, only to be thoroughly confused with the new home page. I forgot to add the song, I was so busy trying to figure out where everything was now located.
Even my bank is in on the action. I got a notice that my ATM cards were being switched to some fancy new card, so my PIN is going to change, unless you call by yesterday. I didn't. I called this morning and had to speak to a customer representative (who was less than happy to have to explain to my WHY I needed to do it yesterday blahblahblah) and "some members really like getting a new PIN number". Count me as one who doesn't. I have had the same numbers for 10+ years, and I'm not going to remember a new one now. Fix it.
It seems that every time you turn around, something is being touted as 'new and improved'. Like it's a good thing. What was wrong with the original way? Sure, some people probably weren't happy, but now you have a bunch of people who aren't happy. I don't want to have to update my software every other day to accommodate your need to switch things up on a weekly basis.
I realize this post will make me sound curmudgeonly and out of touch, but I'm not. I just don't like constant change of things that don't require it. I don't want to have to think that hard when I check my emails.
Now here's a change I can get behind: new fall shoes. Yes, I like this improvement!
