I use various software packages at work, but generally they're the standard Microsoft Office products, which they change at will. You figure something out, get used to it, they change the operating system, update their product and you have to learn the bells and whistles once again.
So, with the amount of time I have to spend learning the new package, I think software company executives should be responsible by wearing a shock collar that's connected to the internet. When I get frustrated, they get a jolt. When they change the entire format, menus and make it exasperating to use the software, I get up to 30 seconds on the button - just to get their attention.
Now, you might be thinking this might not work out, but I can guarantee the executives would be more receptive to their customers and not so inclined follow the advice of people that only think in bells and whistles. I know I would enjoy learning new software and I'd bet it wouldn't take as long.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
