The tech industry is update-happy: In contrast, if I leave a car parked in front of my house, and go away for a while, when I come back, the radio still works. So does the heater, and the engine. I’ve had batteries go bad while cars sat idle. Once I froze an engine block in a Wisconsin winter. But none of this was done to the car, deliberately, by companies in the car industry. Generally when my car breaks it’s because I did something to it. (There are exceptions of course.)
The tech industry is update-happy. The rationale that somehow breakage is not only acceptable, but good — is nonsense.
[Nothing to add. When companies realize that the goal is not to build a company based on fulfilling every dream of every user this might, *might*, get better.]
