  •  Damn those dropped cell calls! Grr... (2+ / 0-)

    I wonder if you think that dropped cell phone calls mean that cellular technology is "Product failure".  

    I personally still hate cellphones, but I carry one everywhere I go.  

    Software programs are an extremely interdependent system.   Most programs cannot be tested thoroughly until they are live.

    Making up fake data and fake interactive program interfaces is extremely expensive and  nearly impossible to do well.

    As a lifelong programmer and system designer, I can assure you the users will do things you never thought of, and failures will happen that you could not foresee.

    Just ask yourself before you criticise:
      Does this need to be said?
      Does it need to be said by me?
