Yes, Itunes, when you've been sitting in the shop 3 days, the customer's breathing down my neck, and there's still 1.5G left to go on the iOS 10 reflash is the perfect time to sync The Amazing Spiderman.

This shit is what happens when you turn a music player into an operating system.

Oh, iTunes. You can go fuck yourself. The way your organize albums sucks ass so hard that the rectum pops out of the body.

Default Re: I hate Apple

I upgraded my Mac Mini from 2GB to 8GB RAM so it would run a later version of the O.S. effectively. Apple doesn't want me to upgrade though because they can't be arsed to support their own WiFi hardware in the latest version. It doesn't matter to them that I don't actually use the WiFi.

I upgraded to the latest version I could and it disabled Bluetooth for no reason. My mouse and keyboard are (Apple brand) Bluetooth so I was completely fucked for a while until I plugged in some old USB keyboard and mouse so I could switch the Bluetooth back on. Then the time machine backup wouldn't work so I had to delete all my old backup history to get it going again. So now I can't revert back to the previous O.S. - not that I want to anyway.

The good thing about that, and any increased social acceptance of masks, is that it will help us preserve privacy (a little bit, for a little while) in the face (:fry:) of all the cameras around streets and shops and business premises and transport facilities.

I'm currently typing this on a MacBook Pro, so...one piece at a time.
Ditched my desktop Mac earlier this year for a PC I built, that felt good.

They asked me if I wanted a mac or pc at my new job, with the caveat that I could only have dual-monitors if I opted for the pc. So, I opted for the PC. Little did I know I'd be forced to use Windows 7! I haven't even seen Windows 7 in years.

Oh it's not implemented yet but the facial rec can tell if youre looking at the phone. So its only time before this is abused.

I wonder how accurately the facial recognition thing can determine what position on the phone screen the user is looking at? :chin:

Obviously if it can do that, there's absolutely no possible use or misuse of that information! :noid:

I'd be angry at Apple, but I think Samsung already has this.
