What an indictment of our "gotta have it now, quantity over quality society". As a car guy I've always hated the "speed kills" mantra but it applies in things like development of these shots.

Sounds like a lot of the BS that we are subjected to in the computer world which also found its way into cars lately. Release some concurrently but not sequentially product development crap and then pull back or re engineer or re code problems during the production runs and during end use

@whitehat, yes I'm living this right now. Big "modernization" project at my employer has already missed one date and now folks are working almost 24/7 to push at the next critical one because the company has already spent a bunch of marketing dollars to publicize the new functionality the project brings.

But in the rush to hit dates proper requirements gathering wasn't done nor was proper due diligence done against the vendor who promised everything was "plug & play" (it absolutely wasn't). So there are huge functionality gaps showing up and it seems every day something new is uncovered in the pre-production testing cycles that SHOULD have been caught weeks ago in initial testing but that was all shortcut in the name of speed.

What's worse is no one who SHOULD be held accountable will be. I suspect the response will be even more micromanagement on us in-house code slingers who were issuing warnings that got ignored all along.
