Normally my policy is not to shit on other people's products. I know how hard it is to take unsolicited negative feedback and how easy it is for some random douche on the Internet to give it. But I feel like I have a special place in my black heart for Google Calendar, so I'm going to break that rule and just lay it out. Here are before and after screenshots of my real calendar from today for comparison.

i'm surprised this is the first article i've seen pointing out how bad the redesigns are, although i've heard people complaining about the bar at the top turning dark.

btw lifehacker covers a setting that allows you to go back to the old design

Don't people write these same articles every time Facebook changes something too? Personally, I hated the old Google Calendar design. I think the new one is much better.
