But they are a necessary evil. I have 2 different types of apps in the Play Store that rely on two completely different suppliers for data feeds, one is a weather app and the other is a service app. The one thing that really annoys me is that these websites often get DDoS attacks. I've managed to code around one suppliers website getting attacked and not supplying the XML feed, but only after my apps rating took a bettering. I now have another problem where my weather app took a feedback battering because www.worldweatheronline.com keep getting DDoS attacks and it can lasts for days. Well users of my app which cost $0.99 then leave one or two stars for the app, when the app was working 100% perfect those same user never left four or five star feedback, *^!*-"%$. Anyway I've now coded around not receiving the JSON feed in my second app due to DDoS attacks on my other suppliers website. It just annoys me that idiots around the world seem to think that it's clever taking down websites for fun, it just disrupts everything for thousands of innocent people around the world. So do you have any annoying hates that are 100% not in your control but you need and that can effect what you are doing?
