I wish they'd fix some of the Xcode issues, it isn't a bad IDE but it could
use some more polish... I even have a script to delete the Xcode cache and
derived data folders as I have to do it so frequently. A plugin system that
doesn't require reverse-engineering would be nice too! Well, okay the latest
version does have a plugin system of sorts, but it is quite limited in scope.

Sadly, since Steve Jobs died it seems that quality control at Apple has taken
a noticeable dip. There are a number of articles online about the lack of
polish in the latest iOS as well!

Well, now I think we are down the garden path as far as the original topic,
and the topic of this list, are concerned! ;)
