auto kill software upgrades
Auto kill : automatic software upgrades that result in dead hardware. Example; If my android does not have "N-2" software version it not longer works.
I understand that developing new features or fixing bugs may require newer software support for the working environment, BUT if I have a setup that works OK for my purpose, there is no excuse for killing my set up.
It would be OK to say if you want the new features or bug fixes you must upgrade.
Bose should keep an archive of applications and firmware to allow the customers to make the choice, rather than today. surprise, new forced upgrade just killed the use of your older hardware. (Unforgiveable attitude)
A good example here is Apple. My iPhone 4S can no longer be upgraded. If I want some of the new feature I will have to upgrade my phone. If Apple did what you do my phone, which works fine for a phone, would currently be dead.
