Steve Jobs reportedly once slammed a problem-plagued rollout of a new service by shouting, 'Mossberg, our friend, is no longer writing good things about us.' But just last week, Mossberg pointed to 'a gradual degradation in the quality and reliability of Apple's core apps.' He fingered iTunes for the desktop ('I dread opening the thing'), and the Mail, Photos, and iCloud programs. Not even Mossberg could get a cogent response from Apple, which told him: 'We have dedicated software teams across multiple platforms. The effort is as strong there as it has ever been.'"]  Los Angeles Times [Paid Membership Required] 2:37 PM
