My Pet Peave Too

If I click 'no', I've probably given up on everything, so don't bother taking me to the page I was trying to go to. Just drop me on the homepage. Thanks.

Do media sites really think I want a different piece of software for every single website I browse?

xkcd, of course

I keep a signed copy of this xkcd over my computer as an eternal reminder while I am blogging

    American Express did this to me for 3 years when I logged into their site. It wasn't for an app though, they wanted my current email. Every time I said no, and every time I logged in to get my account info they asked again. Really frustrating. They don't really need my email for anything anyway.

    I heard a podcast a couple years ago where the speaker decried the "appification of the web"

    Open web sites written in standards-based tools have morphed into closed apps written in proprietary tools.

    Its just bizarre that people don't realize this and object to it.

    We're all peeved at your failure to pay attention to your spellchecker, Warren.

    Just because we thought you should know...
