I wonder why will anybody ship half baked crappy products ? Why do they risk of negative publicity for their products ?If the products is not tested then it is not ready for user, please don’t use us as guinea pigs for your product testing, please test your products before releasing it to the market else say that your product is alpha version.
I am cribbing because, the recently purchased Sandisk music player just hung as soon as it was connected to USB port. Then good old method of unscrewing and removing of battery helped the player to breathe again. Apple’s craftsman ship stands out when compared to Sandisk and I haven’t experienced any problem with iPod till now.
Then there is this text editor e that I tried to evaluate because it promised the power of TextMate on Windows. The editor e just froze my computer forever when I asked editor to open a new file for me. Simple acts as this resulted in me loosing my precious work. No I won’t blame Windows here, the culprit is the editor software. Why do they not test these basic use cases first ?
Who is to be blamed, the marketers or the developers?
