Microsoft still not afraid to bait and switch IMO

Sometimes the young ‘uns wonder why old-timers like me despise Microsoft with such passion. The unlucky ones become Microsoft customers and find out for themselves. Like this missive, proving to me that after all these years Microsoft is still unafraid to bait and switch:

“We want to let you know about some upcoming changes to OneDrive. On July 27, 2016, the amount of storage that comes with OneDrive will change from 15 GB to 5 GB. We are also discontinuing the 15 GB camera roll bonus. … We want to apologize for any inconvenience they may cause you.”

Microsoft, please stop being such a whiny bitch

Not handling rejection well, Microsoft sends me 26
“I’ll give you one more chance not to break up with me”
emails in 12 hours

Dear Microsoft,

Look, we’ve all been dumped before. You just need to move on. It’s not about you. (Well, actually, it is about you, but that’s another story.)

As your Feb 8th email noted, I let the Office 365 trial expire. I’m just not that into you. It’s over. Just let it go.

And show some self respect.

Sending TWENTY SIX emails in a 12 HOUR period is unhealthy. Failing to provide an unsubscribe link in any of those emails is harassment.

I wish I could say let’s still be friends… but after the last 12 hours I’d like to not hear from you ever again.

Be well,
