Or should I even be calling you hotmail, Mr. Outlook.
Outlook? What am I looking out at? If you mean the disgusting new look to your site, then your name has perfectly done what it was meant to do. But that’s not even what I want to talk about. What I really want to ask you is, WHAT THE EF IS WRONG WITH YOU?
I think you got tired of looking ugly so you decided to get a cheap botox and ended up looking OOGLIER.
This is what I don’t understand. Why do people want to change things that don’t need to be changed? It’s a progress if you add a delete button right on top if there already was no such button. But what is the use of changing the delete button text to a cross. It is going to make things more confusing.
It’s good to change, but change for the better for God sake.
Ooooo, you don’t know what I am talking about? Here are 7 good reasons why I HATE YOU :
1. What's with the effing EYE HURTING colors?
2. The extra large everything.
I bet you were created by a man. Fonts, menu, headings, everything is extra large which leaves an EVERYTHING-INTO-YOUR-FACE kind of feeling. Being on outlook is like ALICE IN WONDERLAND or GULLIVER’S TRAVEL where everything is bigger than you.
3. No personalization whatsoever other than the stupid eye twitching colors.
You can’t change the fonts, you can’t change font size, you don’t have the choice to have a decent theme or a decent color. You just basically have to use what they have given whether you like it or not.
4. Forced the new look on us.
You did not even bother to leave the choice onto us. You single handedly decided to change everyone’s once-okay-looking hotmail into an ugly looking outlook without giving an option to switch back to old look because who the hell wouldn’t want to use a crappy, ugly and stupid layout.
5. You can't effing open your inbox, or junk in a new window.
Oh you really did me on this one. YES I LIKE TO OPEN MY INBOX IN A NEW WINDOW. I have my own reasons. It was how I liked it to be. It was my convenience, not anymore I guess.
6. REPLACED CUTE ADORABLE EMOTICONS WITH NEW UGLIER LOOKING EMOTION CRAP.
Not just the quality of the emoticon, The new outlook successfully has sets of crappy looking emoticon that do not even serve the purpose.
Yesterday I was talking to a friend and I used the confused emoticon. Well both of us had to look carefully to what that emoticon really was. I guess the confused emoticon was confused in itself because it looked as if it were smiling :S :S :S.
Anyway, I loved using the old confused emotion. It was my trademark and I used it a lot. Thanx to hotmail, now my favorite emotion is HISTORY. But I will always remember it in my heart and in my memory.
7. The new outlook layout is confusing, not at all user friendly and MESSY.
Lets just go to composing a new email shall we?
So Mr. Outlook, finally I would like to congratulate you for successfully DEFORMING what once was a decent place. I am really so much inspired by your courage of taking ugliness and crappiness to a whole new level and giving the word “horrible” a whole new meaning.
You are now an adjective to me that I shall use in future for anything and anyone who is ugly, crappy, messy, disgusting and did I say UGLY, CRAPPY, MESSY AND DISGUSTING.
So next time I see someone look ugly, I will just say, “OH YOU OUTLOOK YOURSELF”… or I might say “OH THATS AN OUTLOOK” and then I will know that the word OUTLOOK has served it’s purpose.
