It seems to me, that an upgrade

Means something completely different in the 21st century


It used to mean, I believe, something new & improved

However these days, it seems to me


That upgrade; means taking something that looks & works just fine

Moving everything around into much less useful positioning

Then breaking all functionality

Rendering what was one useful

Pretty much infuriating & useless.
