A year ago I had bluetooth headphones that would call out mileage stats during my run; pausing my audiobook in the progress. I recently replaced the headphones with a newer model b/c battery life degraded on the old pair; and also recently upgraded to android 10 on my phone. But now instead of getting a full report of distance, pace, and time, I get distance followed by 5 seconds of silence. Not sure if it is the headphones, Android 10, audiobook app or workout app, but yeah, it does totally seem like software just gets worse over time.

I will say this until it changes, but it is because 1) devs care only about developer productivity and 2) shareholders are the new customer. Nobody is focusing on the real customer.
