Okay guys, I’m now 38. I’ve been really into tech all my life. I’d like to think I’m not an old duffer yet....Slack just seems like an incomprehensible mess to me. I had to use it for a work thing for a while and it’s so unintuitive.
There just seem to be some really poor software usability design choices happening at the moment. I wonder whether it’s to do with bright ideas in startups being pushed forward without the money to pay for proper UI/UX designers?
What do you all think? Is anything you’re using now notably easier than it was 10,15 or 20 years ago?
I was the same with Slack. I'm not stupid but it was so unintuitive that I never got my head around it at all. It's like some forums I use have moved over to Discourse which I think is pretty awful as well. It's difficult to beat a good, decent forum for ease of use and ability to track conversations. I moderate a very large UK based forum of over 120,000 members and it doesn't look much different to how it did fifteen years ago!

Will Green: I'm really looking forward to iOS 13, at the moment the iPad hardware is way ahead of the OS. My MacBook Pro was accidentally broken, so when going on business or interviews I take my iPad. The files app seems very clumsy as it is.

Will Green: So I'm looking forward to seeing what iOS 13 has to offer.
