Why Does Something Simple Like E-Mail Suddenly Become A Pain-In-The-Tail?

We have already dumped on YAHOO and poor Marissa Mayer enough for her misguided attempts to “change” YAHOO. On the bright side, I am so happy to see a cool, smart woman running a major business instead of dry turds like Steve Ballmer.

Yes, we have tried Google’s GMAIL: for one client, and we hate “reading our email backwards”. Forget them. Don’t get trapped on their system.

Now for HOTMAIL. Used to be nice and simple. Yes, they had OUTLOOK too. Lot of big clients had it and we had to use it even it was a real dud. But we were getting paid to put up with a lot of stupid practices by clients anyway.

The “merger” of HOTMAIL and OUTLOOK is just THE CLOWNS RUNNING THE CIRCUS

While Microsoft did warn users that this was the plan, many non-tech-savvy users were bewildered by the change. They couldn’t find their contacts, calendars and old e-mail messages. They weren’t clear as to how and if they should try to merge their e-mail accounts and whether or not they could keep their Hotmail addresses.

The not-so-surprising takeaway here — and this applies to Windows 8.1, too — is most users don’t like change. Especially change that they don’t perceive as improving their computing experience.

So what is the answer? Hard to change mail systems because everybody has your “old” email ingrained. But where I am going is not to one of the “big” ones, but to PerfectInter.Net

Pascal Pelletier scored a goal and had two assists to lead the Utica Comets to a 3-2 American Hockey League victory over the Lake Erie Monsters before 3,514 New Year’s Day fans Wednesday at the Utica Memorial Auditorium. Colin Stuart and Archibald scored the other goals for the Comets (11-16-1-2), Alex Biega had two assists, and Brandon DeFazio and Archibald also had assists. Joe Cannata made 18 saves and withstood intense pressure from the Monsters in the closing minutes. Kellan Lain and DeFazio also livened things up with a two-on-two fight with Lake Erie’s Dan Maggio and Paul Carey, respectively, midway through the second period.

Yesterday was my first shot at Utica hockey “Internet Radio”.  Comets’ announcer Brendan Burke does a great play-by-play on 94.9 KRock. Just go to the Comets WebPage and the hook-up is like automatic. Imagine! half a World away and perfect sound!
