This is a disturbing trend. A corporation “upgrades” their product. The new version is inferior to the old version.
The new delicious sucks! I stopped using it. I switched to Firefox’s bookmark feature plus hand-edited html. I should write my own delicious clone.
My father uses Chase. They upgraded their “buy stocks by phone” system and now it’s worse. They upgraded their monthly statement design, and the new version gives less information than their old version.
When we first got Time-Warner cable, the cable box worked fine. They upgraded their software, and it started crashing once a week. They patched the software and it started working better. Also, the cable signal frquently glitches, which started happening about 2 years ago. I can record a show, only to see that the cable glitches made it unwatchable. Then, we upgraded to an HD TV and got an HD cable box. The “new” cable box crashes every few days. We literally have to unplug it and let it reboot.
The landline telephone stopped working. They did fix it, but now only one phone rings instead of both.
The new UI for Google Analytics and Blogger is inferior to the old version. The new Analytics UI was so awful to use, that I just stopped using it. (I should install piwik here.)
This is a common problem. It’s very disturbing. Very often, the “new and improved” product is inferior to the old version.
