Submitters’ comments: I haven’t written to you in a long time, but today I found a site that’s right up your alley. The Trident Case company supposedly makes rugged cases for smartphones and tablets, but their site is a delightful mix of bad technical glitches, mystery meat navigation and disorganization. There’s even a special bonus! The fun begins at Trident Case.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: The submitter had a lot of bad things to say that I’m sure were accurate at the time s/he submitted this site. Unfortunately, it was stuck in the wrong folder. Still, the obvious problem is this site wants me to think. Nobody wants to think. It looks like the first thing that happens when I visit the site is I’m being forced to fill out a subscription form. I don’t see an “X” on my phone or a small window on my desktop. Like many internet users, if there’s no promise of naked and/or dead bodies, I’m not staying around to figure out your navigation scheme.
