Send a Smile

One of the interesting things that I noticed with the new Office 2007 beta is the ability to quickly provide feedback on a feature to the Office 2007 development team by way of sending a smile or frown. This has dramatically increased the amount of feedback I typically provide since it’s much easier to click on the smile or frown and submit my comments and screenshot (The alternative being submitting bug reports through the old beta website)

When the Send a Smile/ Frown tool is installed the application appears in the system tray as displayed below:

Imagine my surprise when I logged into Google Sitemaps and discovered something similar. It’s hard to find myself rating one of their tools as being ‘Totally not useful’ but nevertheless I’m glad that they’re open to negative feedback.
