You should click "Reply", otherwise I might miss any nice comments people write where they mention me. Don't worry about me, Susan. My field of work is user interface design, so I have zero
contempt and zero
lack of respect for people who are less than capable of understanding new interfaces, let alone for human beings at large
. Clearly Google has made some mistakes here if people just don't understand how to use it. I'm just saying I like it
. Not claiming anybody is less of a person because they don't like it or don't get it. I know first-hand how people seem to have problems using seemingly simple interfaces as I have done many user tests myself, and teach on the subject
at university level!
You, madame, with all due respect, are therefore talking out of your ass, which is common for people who assume they know somebody's life story from reading a comment on the Internet. There is no lack of cognition, there is only further revelation on my part. This is rather shedding further light upon a problem I am already aware of when it comes to UI design. I was simply surprised how people can't seem to use the new interface even though it's basically the same as the one we had before, with the same elements, same keyboard shortcuts, everything. I thought it was cute, because it reminds me of my 80+ year old grandfather who is trying to keep up-to-date with technology and actually pays his bills online, does email and the likes. And I think it's sad, because Google seemingly put so much effort into this yet people don't like it.
So, be careful when you speak like you do about someone you don't know. Because you most likely have no idea who you are talking about. I hope you have a wonderful day now, ma'am.
