Why won't companies learn how to allow people to use secure passwords instead of complicated ones?

So you might have heard that Evernote was hacked, causing Evernote to reset everyone's passwords. Meaning the next time you log in you will be prompted to set a new password. 
http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2013/03/02/security-notice-service-wide-password-reset/

Since Evernote is one of my mission critical tools, I decided to do that immediately. And I wanted to use "pancakes on the moon" as my password. It's 20 characters long, and while it is only lowercase it also includes 3 symbols, making it insanely secure. 

In fact, according to GRC's Haystack validator (https://www.grc.com/haystack.htm), it will take 8.45 hundred billion centuries to hack it. 

But, the security nincompoops at Evernote has instead decided that my password should be complex instead of secure, because I can't use spaces in my password (see below). 

So a password like "S62hrhw3" works just fine, but it can be hacked in just 36.99 minutes (if the hacker has direct access to the password file) ... and there is no way I can ever remember that, so I have to use some kind of password storage utility as well (making it even less secure).

It has now been six years since I wrote about this problem in "The Usability of Passwords": http://www.baekdal.com/insights/password-security-usability ... but one has to wonder if the security industry will ever learn that passwords can be both easy to remember and use, while being insanely secure.

Of course, the most important tip is to never use the same password for two different services. I personally don't care that Evernote was hacked, because the hacker can't access anything else with that password. And now that Evernote has reset my password (good move), they can't access my account at Evernote either.

That is much easier said than done, there are quite a few I like and nothing really stands out. I like the carbon fiber ones, the wooden ones are nice but I'm not sure how they'll look on a red x, and the leather ones look good too. TOO MANY CHOICES!!!
