What added to the frustration is that on both web sites, there was no information on the disruption at all. No details, no apologies, just loads of Flashy ads and graphics. Very typical of large Malaysian companies. They mainly use the Internet (their web sites especially) as a near infinite billboard where their advertisements are broken up into pages.
What’s supposed to be an excellent communication tool is only used for marketing purposes and almost nothing else. Whatever happened to using the Internet to relay useful information? Clearly Maxis and most commercial organisations have failed to use the Internet to the fullest.
It’s because of issues like this that the tech circle are usually reluctant on unleashing their pet projects on to the public. There has been way too many instances where corporations disfigure their creations into commercial monsters.
Is anyone else having this problem? Especially those outside Johor Bahru.
