Updates Shmupdates

Miss me? I’ve missed you. I wonder if there's an app for that...



I’ve been busy doing upgrades to apps. A sentence I never thought I’d say. And now that I’ve said it, I don’t think it’s acceptable, do you?


There was a time when companies didn’t introduce products until they were ready for the marketplace – “bug-free” if you will. But now, in the advanced era of technological advancement, new products and apps are introduced willy-nilly (a phrase I’ve always wanted to use and now I have, so, happy making for me!), and days later, we receive messages saying updates are ready and MUST BE DOWNLOADED to address “bug-issues.” Seriously?


How about not sending it out until you’ve done a little quality control? How about standing by your product? How about letting fairly educated people who also are more computer savvy than “geniuses” care to admit, not feel like shackled idiots frustrated beyond belief because what worked yesterday doesn’t work now and there’s no obvious reason why?


You can’t blame everything on the weather and Kanye. You can’t, as much as that would be very convenient to do. I live in Florida, so the weather is usually to blame a little, for many things. And Kanye? Well, he’s Kanye, so there’s that. But I don’t think he has shares in Spotify or Sonos the last I checked. So I guess he’s off the hook there.


Anyway, tonight we’re listening to self-made music because it’s the only game in town. and there are no bugs involved. It may be old school, but it works.

Accept that the moment you buy your latest iPad, iPhone, tablet, app or game it will be promptly followed by a vastly improved and sleeker looking version. – Simon Mainwaring
