CNET Joins the User-Hostile Design Crew
The new CNET interface seems to be yet another nail in the coffin of those who continue to do their work on a laptop or desktop designed to support serious reading and writing. As someone who has always enjoyed the convenience of Page Up and Page Down buttons, rather that swooping pages with the stroke of a finger, I feel particularly victimized. However, the read addition of insult to injury was the hyperlink for comments about the interface using the most generic form, more interested in collecting personal information than in analyzing the impact of the interface change. Perhaps it is time to give up on CNET as a source of technology news.
