Entitlement and Acquisition - Matt Gemmell
This is something that worries me about how app development is shaking out. The sense of entitlement when you buy a $5 app is nuts. I realize that App Store policies govern much of this culture with the lack of paid upgrades, but you cannot reasonably expect that you're entitled to years of future work for your very modest investment.

Buy software for its current functionality, not its potential functionality. Your copy of Sparrow works the same this week as it did last week.

I understand why people who made Sparrow an integral part of their workflow are upset. I'm not upset that I spent $3 on it, but I'm relieved that I never got around to relying on it and therefore I don't have to spend the time to replace it.
