Nobody’s perfect right? With the obvious exception being Megan Fox. But for the most part we can all agree that we have flaws. Funny thing is, we demand that our mobile devices be flawless. It’s kind of an unfair position to take considering that electronic devices are still created by people, who we all already agreed are flawed. But it’s an understandable position too. I mean when an iPhone 4 sets you back a couple hundred bucks, it would be nice to know that a grain of sand isn’t going to cause the housing to shatter because of a few iPhone cases slide on rather snap on.
The same can be said for the operating systems themselves. I don’t have a degree in software engineering, but I would imagine it is hard to design a cellular OS that runs flawlessly on hardware designed by multiple manufacturers in multiple countries. The Motorola Droid X is just one of many phones to fall victim to bugs
that are making the phones run at less than optimal performance levels since being updated to Android 2.2 (Froyo).
Some of the biggest bugs reported are the media player not functioning properly, random rebooting and poor WiFi connection stability. Apparently a software update for the Motorola Droid X covers all of the problems and will be sent out soon. I suppose that is the best that we can hope for. So long as technology advances at the pace it’s moving at, there are going to be bumps and hiccups. As long as the companies recognize the problems and fix them in a timely fashion, we can’t complain too much. I take that back. We can complain a ton. But it isn’t going to change anything.
