hope marco, geoff and others keep writing these articles so that eventually tim or someone sees one and shakes things up. pressure from the bottom has not worked so far
Then one day a fortnight ago, I chanced upon another solution. Some people are speculating that because the WiFi signals is clashing with Bluetooth signals as they are both in 2.4 GHz, its affecting the WiFi. I was using Apple Wireless Keyboard & Touchpad. I have friend who had similar setup who seems to have the same issue.
So the next day, I spent 464 USD just to upgrade my router, get a wired Keyboard and a wired Mouse.
I have definitely splurged on these hardwares but at this point I am so frustrated and desperate that I need to make sure any hardware issue is out of the question. These are the only variables I can control, anything else felt hopeless.
I then jumped on 5 GHz WiFi and stop using bluetooth. My WiFi situation have improved a lot since then. Not perfect, but not un-usable.
The point is that I could have saved those money. To spend so as to fix a bug felt so Window'ish. It use to just work, and glitch are bearable, now I always worry of upgrading.
Anyway, those money could have went into buying Apple stuff.
I also read somewhere it was related to Handover protocol using the same bandwidth as wifi. This sounds more plausible. Then having bluetooth + regular wifi + Handover wifi is too much and the connexion suffers. I which case there's not much Apple can do unfortunately, except rethink the whole stuff.
I'd say in any case the future in that matter doesn't look bright.
Maybe I'm just not hitting core features with OSX 10.10, but the features I'm using seem fine. And not seeing stability issues with third-party software.
Now, I know some people will really want tags and I remember them spending a bunch of time in the keynote talking about them but I'm pretty sure I've never used them. It's not a bad feature… I guess it's nice and I bet a lot of people use it, but I would prefer if it was built on top of a more solid foundation.
I don't think anyone but management ever really wanted tags.
Folders allow for a simple hierarchical navigation option and allow you to preserve "structure" when round-tripping resources the rely on nested folders in and out of a cloud service. It allows for strong naming and namespaces.
Tags can be user-supplied, crowd-supplied, or even through AI/expert system, and allow for cross-cutting exploration when involving stuff that can't be indexed like text. (Although even documents benefit from tags to ease finding them again when there's a haystack)
Tags require more effort to maintain but are essential when you are dealing with a complex collection.
But there is no way to implement user-supplied or crowd-supplied tags when you are practically limited to the seven colours used for tagging, and it only works if you can even remember which colour is used for which tag.
That shouldn't be possible. Crash the browser yes, not the whole OS.
I was about to take my laptop in to see if it was a hardware issue when a coworker pointed me to a forum where someone suggested turning off automatic graphics switching. I did that about two weeks ago, and since then I haven't had a single occurrence of the issue. You may want to try the same thing to see if it helps.
Plus, the wifi fiasco, over which more than one person should have been fired.
I am barely sticking with Apple for now, mostly because in startups it is the default, but I don't plan to replace my apple equipment with more apple products.
wait, this is causing friction?
they fired forstall to get total gleichschaltung and now ppl elsewhere are revolting? i hope this'll come to fruits.
this whole cozy-collaboration-and-nobody-saying-no thing has to stop.
