Microsoft to a 'T'

I got another renewal notice for MSDN* magazine which had this listed as the first step:
Log in to MSDN Subscriber Downloads (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/default.aspx) by clicking on "Sign In" in the upper left.
Which of course means that "Sign In" is located, well...

I noticed this two or three months ago when I had to change the delivery address and figured it was a one-off thing, but I guess not.

*MSDN = Microsoft Developer Network

"Sign In" in the upper left... no, your other left.

This is a small scale version of Microsoft's regular modus operendi where they stress integration across their apps, but seem to skip on a singular, usable interface across their assets that could really make it gel as an experience.

Good enough for government work I guess.
