Evernote is a useful tool. You can save texts on the Web for free.
It has a powerful search engine. With two clicks of a mouse, you can be sure that you will be able to retrieve anything you find on the Web. You can use memory aids: key words.
That was then. This is now. No more two-clicks. Every time you want to save anything, you must go through the process of typing in your password.
Because last week Evernote got hacked. So, the programmers have re-written the code to stop the hackers. In doing so, they have dramatically reduced the value of the program. They have treated users’ time as a zero-price resource.
Now there are endless log-ins.
Programmers do what is convenient for them. If users don’t like it, so what? They are dispensable. They must suck it up.
The programmers have convinced management that what is best for customers is extra work on the customers’ part.
Who programmed the original site? Whose fault was it that the site was hacked? Who should bear the blame?
Whose lives should be disrupted? The programmers know: users!
