I used to think updates and upgrades were great. Whether it was a new feature or something that just made my life easier. I kind of looked forward to what some software developers would come up with next.
Maybe it’s just me, but times have changed in recent years. Updates and upgrades seem to be happening at a much faster rate than they used to.
This is usually a good thing. It is always nice to see an update that addresses a security issue with any software. But, if you ask me the frequency rate that many software companies and developers are releasing updates are becoming a bit annoying and time-consuming.
Every time I turn my computer on now instead of wondering if there will be some kind of software update today, it is more along the lines of I wonder how many will there be today.
The same goes for WordPress for that matter. Every time I login I wonder if there will be a WordPress update, or how many plugins will have an update available. I am sure glad I don’t have any more plugins installed than what I do, or I would be there all day just updating. I would really hate to have a bunch of sites that all needed updating at the same time.
It’s obviously a good idea to keep things up-to-date for security. Whether it be your actual computer, or the software your website is powered by. It just seems like these things are available much faster and more often than they used to be.
Things are moving at such a fast pace it’s difficult to keep up with. And, not just in the world of technology and computers!
