Years ago I chided 37signals when they made major changes to their API for Basecamp that broke apps which used it, and screwed up a great workflow I had been using. I told Jason Fried that it was a type of arrogance that does this without talking to devs who have added value to his company for no profit to themselves (outright).
So today I read about Google+ and the update that broke all of this guy's extensions... Same crap, different year. Read his comment below the article and you can see how this feels.
This irks me.
