You aren't impressing me with a dialog box saying Switch to the new look -- without telling me WHY I want to switch. Today I saw in Gmail that Gmail's getting a new look soon. Learn more Dismiss. Clicking the Learn More gave me:
About Gmail’s new look
A new look
Watch the video to get an overview of the improvements.
You will automatically get upgraded to the new look soon. If you don't want to wait, you can switch to it today by logging into Gmail and clicking Switch to the new look.
I suppose I'm supposed to be impressed that you're warning me that you're about to fuck up Gmail, as opposed to Facebook that just fucks it up. But it all seems more like a threat.
See, I'm tired of having to bloody upgrade all the time. Especially on YOUR schedule and not mine. And it doesn't inspire confidence that lots of people are complaining about the so-called improvements.
And Google? Get off my lawn while you're at it.
PS -- I looked at the video. Kudos for putting in captions, since I normally run with the sound off. But in parts it looks like they want Gmail to look more like Facebook. Or G+. Which if I wanted to use, I'd look at more than once a month...
