Nice article but where is the OUTRAGE against all of these software companies that just cannot seem to implement THE BASICS for user experience. No UNDO button on the Outlook snooze dialog for 20+ years? Seriously? And you-all just put up with it? Where is the push-back against Micro$$oft, google, etc.
