Consulting must be a different beast. I am the analyst, stakeholder, developer, support department, and tester. I write my own specs, usually on the fly! Unfortunately, I am also in charge of the documentation.
That can work for small companies or small products or products that are your own.
When working for bigger companies and with demanding customers you can't get away with that unless you can clone yourself and work five weeks in a week
I've been there too and it has its merits
that web browsing on the iPad has become complete crap since the latest update came out a week or so ago?
I can on,y browse to a couple of websites - ALL of the others I try to go to refuse to render. This is in both Safari (which absolutely sucks balls), and FireFox.

My 3 iPads are all hand-me-downs from the wife and are too old to get updates. I only use them as music players and occasionally testing web apps. Most of the time, months go by before I need to use one of them so they are usually dead. I really dislike iAnything.

I learned the same applies to their laptops. As I refuse to give Apple any money, I bought a second-hand MacBook Pro a few years ago (as I wanted to learn how to get around MacOS, even though I'm still otherwise no fan), and I got maybe 3 years worth of OS updates out of it before I started getting prevented from downloading anything new.
It's their hardware, and I can only use their software on it, and if I want to stay on the latest to avoid vulnerabilities that no longer get patched, I'm supposed to what, stop using it buy something newer? I could still install Windows 10 on much older hardware if I wanted to.
