Interruptions, due to notifications and application updates, are the bane of my existence. One of the biggest offenders is Microsoft Office. Upon launching the app with the intent on doing some actual work, I am first interrupted by a swatch of patches and bug fixes. Running these takes between a minute or two – but it temporarily causes me to lose momentum when I have a task I really need to complete. A better solution would be to have the notification appear AFTER I’ve started working – when the machine appears to be idle. Why isn’t this happening yet? What are your biggest IT pet peeves?
