Interestingly this one had Madame Smurf ranting and raving, but I didn’t think it was that bad. I wouldn’t say I’m a Hotmail power user though.
I would estimate her reaction to be about 70% her Word 2007 rage. Which she still won’t use.
What do you think?
Fear of change? or genuine fail?
Sadly I think this whole new UI virus to which MS (and others) have succumbed is just a thin veil of Fail over a core of missing business model. And MS aren’t the only one. Lots of orgs seem to be spending a ton of cash on cloudy BS with no clue how to recover their ‘investment’.
Heres an idea: get the people who find the service valuable to pay to use it. A bit old skool I know, a bit 90’s I know, but ad funding can only go so far.
Whatever happened to that ‘The End of Free’ web site from the Web 1.0 bubble burst?
have a good weekend
