Here are some numbers I've just pulled out of radar:

That's 4,700,000 reports In just over 2 years. Or 250 reports per hour. Every day. Seven days a week.

That's 1,800 reports in 1:50 hours. Or 1000 an hour. That's probably the iOS beta peak.
Holy! When OS X development changed in 2010 to mirror iOS development, lowering membership to $99/yr from $499 and $3499, it seemed a great idea to bring in more MAS development. I assumed most [new developers] wouldn't bother bug reporting, instead focusing on their app's.

Apple drops price, changes name of Mac Developer Program

I don't miss the membership prices, but I miss OS X development pre-10.7; biweekly/weekly beta's that required a clean install to ensure third party app's, etc weren't "outliers" in debugging. Plus beta's seemed to offer a few surprises along the way (loved 10.5's "iChat" feature "Answering Machine" for video away and recorded messages, should use it for iMessages, great for the deaf).
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
