So, Xcode is apple’s developer software, and since the App store‘s launch, that’s the only place you can get it. The problem is that the app store makes it a HUGE PAIN IN THE A$$ to update. Because of this, I wrote the following dialogue in Xcode’s review. Oscar nominations can be sent directly to my twitter.

Xcode is awesome. The App store, well, is awesome in its own respect, but completely inapropriate for this kind of software. For that it gets only 4 stars. I think I’m going to hop on the bandwaggon and shout “please just use software update” like a nagging wife:

Hey Apple, can we talk? Please listen to me. No, please, Dear: turn off the TV. So, I know you say I nag – please, Hunny, can you look me in the eyes? I don’t want to be a nag, but I just feel like all our conversations are one-way. You never really listen to me. I know your silence helps create mystery and keeps me coming back… but I really wish you would admit when you’re wrong. Like only offering Xcode on the App store. You know that wasn’t the best idea – please don’t give me that look! It’s not like I’m asking you to surrender something to Google or Microsoft – I’m just suggesting that using software update (which you invented) may be a better aproach. I mean, the developers that are frustrated with the download process are the same ones you want to ship their products on the app store.

– no, wait, Hunny? Please come back… I’m not done…. No, I’m not trying to emasculate you…
