Verschlimmbessern

I’ve got a new phone (Sony Ericsson P990i). Whilst it does everything, safe for frying an egg, I found that the Jotter application that I use to draw with is nowhere near as good as on the P800 and P900. It seems that the response to the stylus has a slight delay and it invents lines that I didn’t draw. Why is it that when you found something perfect, the update is not as good. We have a german word for this verschlimmbessern (trytomakeitbetterbutmakeitworse).
Nevertheless it’s great fun to draw people on the train sitting opposite, whilst looking insanely busy blackberrying.
