Apple Well, it might be safe to say that Apple's own engineers stopped testing their Apple apps with 3.x iOS devices, and have created bugs that make these apps unusable. This is to be somewhat expected, Apple has a track record of not-so-great backwards compatibility (on the Mac), but what we also expected was to not get these broken updates forced to us. It's one thing to stop updating the firmware of older iOS models, and another thing breaking them.

I know it's my own experience, but I have a 1st Gen iPod Touch and have not encountered any of these problems. Still works great to download and update applications.

And seriously - Apple was willing to send engineers to see the software problem in action? And you are complaining that they are bricking your device and/or don't support it? What? I wish Apple engineers would come to my house when something was the matter.

Or any engineer. Crazy.
