Sadly, I’d say that was a “fairly” graceful failure. At least it provided some information (as opposed to the display being there as a way to display the current time). At least you had some information to use in order to resolve the situation. IMHO (as a consumer and a programmer) graceful failure is an option that far too many companies quickly remove due to profitability issues (it takes $$$ to anticipate and code for a graceful failure, which reduces profit). In addition, there is also the issue (that you’ve covered before) of “where do we stop and call it a sellable product”. Also, if enough people complain, there is always the “new and improved” next version. Now, with that said, that same corporate attitude does keep me employed ;).
