It’s an easy mistake to think we own the base level of technology that’s out there,

I thought so too – but I have a number of friends whose phones don’t handle animated GIFs over 2M (or maybe it was 3M ?)  so I will sometimes scale it down for them.

It’s an easy mistake to think we own the base level of technology that’s out there, when in fact we may really have a more advanced level than other people – I forget sometimes too ’til someone complains 😛

Software/game developers, when they develop on and have access to the TOP level of tech ALWAYS seem to fall into this trap.

Not only do they develop on their super-sophisticated machines but then they end up developing FOR their super-sophisticated machines..

…and then they wonder why they have to start issuing bug fixes, patches, lower resolution modes, etc.

Whenever I do development, I do it on a lower end machine for that reason – or at the very least, I constantly test on lower-end machines to make sure it works the same.
