Problem with geeks deciding on user experience
I got this today from Skype (which of course is from Microsoft because its the way they think). I hate it. Why? Because a geek in Redmond decided that it was a brilliant idea to mine as many contacts as possible from a user’s inbox and then add them on Skype! Brilliant, right?
Problem: in an inbox I don’t only have friends. I have co workers and people I don’t really like. Let me add my friends one at a time, choosing who to add and who not to add. Don’t force me.
PS: It is a very common practice across the board, but one I loathe.
