I feel like my problem with smartphones (and this is with all smartphones, not just the iphone)
is that the software is changed or replaced too often, forcing things to become obsolete. And I know its intentional, but all its done is not make me buy into smartphones at all (well I have a smartphone, but its without a data plan and its mostly my ipod/mp3 player/whatever you want to call it.

I bought a used and cracked screen iPod Touch 4th gen and yesterday I saw it had an update to iTunes Festival, I clicked on 'whats new' before updating, and it said something to the effect of 'compatibility with iOS 7'. So that is a worthless update for me since the 4th gen Touch won't run iOS 7. So while I think it is cool they are allowing you to get the last version that will run on your OS, they should take it another half step and not show you updates that require an OS you can't use.

The game was only good before the first update.
