Stupid internet

Illustration for article titled Stupid internet

Because we have accounts for everything these days, every six months or so I get a message from my fairly defunct Origin account mentioning something. Today I signed up for Origin Access, apparently. Which is weird, because:

a) it doesn’t look like there’s been any games added to my account

b) none of my personal credit card information was saved to my account, which I confirmed, and my sole credit card has no new charges


c) only my computers have access to this account, according to EA

Was I hacked? Unlikely, but password change done because internet safety is important, and who would spend money on my account? Did EA just give me a free trial? If so, why not just call it a trial?


In sum, I hate having a million accounts for everything and hope that either services start dying or they start consolidating logins.
