MS is putting out a lot of rubbish lately. I was trying to get my feet wet in UWP yesterday. The default Class library and Application projects wouldn't even compile properly at first. It would give me the most obscure compilation errors and send me off to a googling spree. Had to turn off Native compilation, randomly updated some nuget references, did some random nuget restore commands, and finally got these very basic projects compiling. I'm seriously starting considering jumping ship.
I rarely have that problem, they work most of the time, although I guess I've only used Web API lately.
I am missing a lot of .NET Core templates though (like Azure WebJobs or Functions).
And the templates they do have are often grossly outdated.
For example, I know their templates still used Bower long after Bower was considered obsolete (even by Bower's creator himself).
I'm just surprised we haven't had "SND CODZZZZ URGNT!!!" in QA ...
Mind you I was watching the TV news and that had a young lady complaining that farcebok was a human right (almost) and I'm thinking "Lady, you clearly have no idea at all how much has to work behind the scenes to get your status update posted at all ..."

I use O2 and I realised that if I was depending on the satnav functionality of my phone, depending on map update information on the road, I would be a bit stuck today.
I imagine there will be a lot of people out there on the road who are going to be affected by this.
(unless they have pre-loaded their maps...)

After writing mobile apps for a couple of years, I realized just how huge the security issues of the entire stack (radio protocols, platforms, and apps) were. I stopped writing apps and ditched my phone. I only really miss the navigation, but my stand-alone gps is adequate.
