Passwords you cannot optionally see or get back

If you are dyslexic passwords are a nightmare, typing in the correct sequence of characters without being able to see them is an absolute irritating and time consuming nightmare.
If you forget your password can you get it back, no you are given a chance to reenter a new password, but this means you have to think of yet another password and that confounds the issue over time and means you are even less likely to remember your password. Even if you remember it again when the password reset screen comes up some systems do not allow you to use old passwords again.

I remember something like fifty passwords but still have problems with some, and thinking of new ones that are hardened enough not to be cracked and remembering them is a nightmare, a nightmare, I tell you, well you probably already know.


Out of touch CEO’s

You have probably seen this one before but just for fun I am going to let Steve Ballmer demonstrate this one all for himself.

Lack of any connection with a product and its real usability, bugs,┬ávulnerabilities, and problems that are just swept under the carpet. The so called “Metro” interface which has now been renamed to goodness knows what, and the lack of the start button is okay for the occasional user or for use on a touch screen machine but for most users machines and for Windows Server in particular it is totally out of touch, it should be an option.
