Hotmail changes

A while ago, I got something from hotmail saying that they were discontinuing the free service of checking other POP mail accounts, and it was now part of their paid package. Today, I went there and there's a "POP" button near the top (as opposed to the old one on the right side). WTF?

Also, their address book is now "Contacts" and they have eliminated the first/last name from the view (does anyone know how I can get this back?); all they show now is the "quickname" and the email address. Again, WTF?

Is this stuff just happening to me?

Nope, it's not just you. I noticed the same changes today.

I don't remember when that "pay for POP mail" thing was supposed to take effect, but mine still works.

I took effect last friday, IIRC. I remember using it that day, and later that day the linky-link was gone. I reread the email, and went, "Oh, damn, that was today, better go see if I can set up a Yahoo account if they have POP retrieval..." Maybe that's why they brough it back...
