Mike Isaac wrote this article for Wired last week about the growing trend from tech companies to just get a product out the door as soon as possible and then ship software updates later in hopes to improve the usability of the device.

Personally, if it’s a matter of trade-off, I would rather have a device that had less fanciness and features in exchange for speed and reliability and consistency in what it does do. Because if there are features missing altogether (like the quintessential example of copy and paste on the early versions of iOS) then it is easier to settle the issue that you cannot do that. But having a device that is feature rich yet buggy and inconsistent is like a constant annoyance.
