Time to update
I was thinking about software updates and thought I would
share my conspiracy theory.
I have an iPhone and I’m plagued with updates, ones that I dutifully
install then see no difference with the software. This led me to believe most
of these “essential updates” are more about the software people doing a little
product placement. Maybe if you see it update you will run to use it some more.
This led me to think about how steam and the oculus market
place deal with this stuff. They did it continuously it drove me nuts so I
turned off auto updates on the damn thing cos it was getting silly and annoying
Alt space vr wanted updating every time I would try to use it, eventually I stopped
using it. Hifi use to update 200 times a day well it seemed like it did. Its
better now they are down to maybe one a week or better every couple of weeks.
With this new influx of steam users, the dilemma is push through fixes and risk
driving people away or make a fairly stable build last until you have something
more than a change to logging to annoy people with…
Oh the new content is available thing will have new users
wiping everything they made. It should be reset to default content. Yes we have
backups but annoying is annoying.
Unrelated the boss where I work announced they are leaving.
It occurred to me I never met her. She never dropped by my department and said
hi. Then I was looking on the form and saw piks of Philip hanging out with
people at the sandbox at the weekend. Philip has more money than he can wave a
stick at, he doesn’t need to do any of this he could be sat on a beach lighting
dollar bills and throwing them into the sea till the day he dies. But he’s in
hifi on Sunday chatting to people.

you’ll never work again.”
He does seem to have a point.
