A link is not a widget - part II

From Kevin Burton's blog:

Take Microsoft's for example. At the Syndicate conference I was nice and pointed out a few bugs to the Microsoft team. They fixed them by making them worse and just plain inaccessible.

They're not links. They're fake ajax 'on click' handlers which trap both the left and right mouse buttons. The team tricks the user and makes them look like links when in fact they're not.

As I've said before "a link is not a widget".

Great quote: is one of those products you won't use but it's still annoying to know that it exists.

Fuck Christmas

Oh, this is good... very good...

From Fuck Christmas:
Can we back up just a couple steps here? At what point did a basic understanding of the separation of church and state become a fucking war on religion? And how did we get to the point where you can call an organization set up to defend our civil liberties Terrorists on national television and no one fires your ass? Enough. Fuck all of you lying little shitheads who wish the world was out to get you so you could play the poor oppressed victims. Wake up assholes, you're the cowboys, not the fucking Indians.
