This app requires a microphone

“No it doesn’t!” you scream uselessly in to the air after the bug reports come trickling in after you ship.  Simply put, this is the worst error message in the history of error messages.  All it means is that the app was published for iphone and 2nd gen ipod only, and they are trying to install it on a 1st gen ipod.

So thanks, Apple, for making thousands of users bitch at me when the problem is pebkac because of your crap error message.
