PS3 You Tube App (Years Later It Still Sucks)

Ok, so this is definitely a first world problem. After years of being available on the PS3 the YouTube app. for it still does not do things like remember searches. Still it is amazing to have access to the content on YouTube on my PS3. So why am I upset about it’s simple to work around short-comings? Well, because you have 3, well technically 2, of the largest corporations to ever exist, meaning largest entities in the world to exist, that don’t seem to give a shit about it working correctly. Sony and YouTube (owned by Google). It should be a matter of pride that their apps work correctly on all platforms, but Sony released the PS4 so they don’t give a shit and YouTube probably just doesn’t consider it a big enough market. With stupid work-arounds like using your laptop or phone to control YouTube on your PS3 they probably consider it fine, but how dumb is it to have to control your one super powerful computer (aka your PS3) with another computer (aka your phone, laptop, etc.) when your PS3 is more than powerful enough to handle YouTube on its own, especailly when the problem is just that Sony and YouTube are too lazy to fix the PS3 app? ¬†Again, it shows us that in our current era big corporations don’t really care about releasing quality products. Just good enough products. The age of giving a shit about quality is long over, and this is just another example of it.
