Friday Rant - It's new technology stupid, you should expect problems!

Friday Rant - It's new technology stupid, you should expect problems!

It bothers me how there's a growing number of people who believe that early adopters of new technology products or services should not only expect problems, but should also make excuses for the product or service not meeting their needs because it's new. The cry of "it's new technology stupid, you should expect problems" seems to have become the default defense put forward by fanboys and apologists alike. I get this one thrown at me all the time. If you've ever been an early adopter you're likely to have come across this yourself.
