PluggedIn and Their Crappy UI
I got really excited when I heard about PluggedIn, a site that wants to be the Hulu.com of music videos. Uh, not quite. Not only do you have to install a plug-in to watch the videos (A Java applet? What is this, 1999?) but their catalog of videos is weak and their UI is terrible. See the screen-shot below. Don’t these web-designers know that stretching photos is not cool? Look at poor Akon, he’s like a rapping dwarf. And check-out that classy ad for Amy Whinehouse ringtones. Niiiice!
