Straight Angle™: Why I hate MSN so much!
Tuesday, September 20, 2005
There are times, when I wonder, why I hate MS so much....Then, I used to think, after all without MS, there wouldn't have been a PC for me to browse and speak ill of MS so much...But time and again, MS proves itself that, it deserves to be hated, deserves a post that would screw it- literally.
One of my regular reads is the Slate Magazine. Yeah- I know, though it is owned by the MS group, I read it...it does have some nice articles and some nice writeups. Take for example, this article in the picture...rather it's a book review column.
There were two books reviewed- Pornified: How Pornography Is Transforming Our Lives, Our Relationships, and Our Families, and Female Chauvinist Pigs: Women and the Rise of Raunch Culture. Now, dont just grin at the name of the books...It occurred to me that these might be a good topic...what with the net stuffed with porn material to more than 50%, Porn will definitely have an impact in all our lives. But, to the subject of this post!
When, I opened the review page, the picture was how it looked- a big banner in the middle of the page, for The New York Times...asking me to click it..I am really incensed by the insensitivity of the page designer. The banner stays in the middle of the page...what sort of stupid idea is it to have a banner in the middle of the page!..Thinking that by, clicking on the banner, it will disappear, I click on it, only to find that, it is much more smarter than me...it just stayed there...irritated to the core, I simply closed the window and started blogging!!
But the second time, I opened the same page, the banner was gone!..So, either the page should install a cookie to know that, this is not the first visit(in which case, it is even more bad)..or that was a simple mistake by a designer-which I suspect cannot be the case...MS hadn't gone that bad yet! Iam thinking of stop reading Slate!- I dont want to be tracked with cookies!!..There you go MS...You don't deserve me!
