Bugs that emerge over time


Today my BlackBerry crashed when I plugged in a headset. This is the same headset I’ve been using with it for years. Since the headset is analog, I didn’t even realize that such an interaction was possible. Perhaps the BlackBerry software changes the audio input and output when it senses a new device. All I know is, of all the things that can make a piece of hardware or software freeze up, this is definitely a lame reason. However, I can’t say that I’m surprised: many products become less reliable and fall victim to new bugs over time, even without any apparent physical wear.
