Bad Astronomy on Usability

One of my favorite science blogs, Phil Plait’s Bad Astronomy, recently touched upon a usability topic which gives me an excuse to link to his blog!  The story gets goofy from there (a rivalry between him and actor Wil Wheaton ensues).

He is complaining about an upgrade to Apple’s iMovie which reduced features but more important reduced the usability of the program.  Details are short and I don’t have access to iMovie to check out what he is referring to:

The old version (iMovie07) worked great, so of course in iMovie08 Apple added things that make it more confusing and took away all the good stuff, making it suck harder than a starving black hole.  So there you go. Feel free to use that image whenever Apple releases some new “upgrade” that actually reduces an app’s useability.
