Apple "The key takeaway we've reached (after two less than 24 hours playing with the iOS 7 Beta release) is this - every App must consider even basic updates to its UI to survive in a post-iOS 6 world." Great. Telling developers to update their entire application - user interface and behaviour alike - to target a look and behaviour that isn't final yet. Seems like potential for a lot of wasted work here.

This is why I have a loathing for so many developers - this belief that you write code once and then milk it forever without ever having to maintain or add any new features requested by end users because by birth right they should be millionaires. Honestly, there is this sense of entitlement that because there is no 'moving parts' therefore it should require no regular TLC to keep the software up to date. I hope that for every developer that whines that he/she might actually have to do some work that there are a group of developers willing to do the work to dethrone the incumbent in that particular genre of software.
