I agree, for many of my 99c games i'm not expecting updates forever to support the latest devices. I hope to get my new ipod touch today and i'm sure there'll be a few issues with some old apps i might have which will never get updated. Shame but i cant expect a dev to re-do some old app which is losing money anyway as you say.
With a 30-40 dollar PC/console game i would expect a lot of fixes, for some tiny 69p game which might be now free i'm not expecting miracles with amends.
