Apple has been rewriting lots of its software program lately with new versions that are more streamlined, i.e., Photos, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, etc.  So far, they have taken out some features and refined the interface that some like and some don't.  When are they going to rewrite iTunes from scratch?  iTunes is the program that is in most need of a complete rewrite from scratch to get rid of the bloat that it has become.  I really hope a totally new iTunes is on the way,...
Very well stated!  Everyone who posted above should read what you wrote.
Seriously, chill out and stop with the personal attacks.  I agree with OP, Yosemite has some huge issues and it is definitely not for everyone to necessarily upgrade to.  Apple seems to be using this to push more people onto Yosemite, but not supporting a two year old OS is a very short time, even by Apple's standards. I've tried Yosemite on a few machines and they are slower than they were before upgrading from Mavericks.  They have changed a number of things that simply...
I've had similar issues with it. Over the weekend, I had to try three times and it said "Done" each time, but didn't actually go through. I finally had to give up and use a regular credit card. I've used it about twenty times and have found that it generally takes longer for me to complete the process than it would to just take out and use my credit card. I see the benefit with regards to security, but in the end, the credit card companies are on the hook for any...
I'd be happy if their review system worked at all reasonably well. I have a small button in the corner of my app that takes a user to the review page for that app. I log how many people have pressed it. I have 300 people who voluntarily pressed the button and have 16 reviews. I don't expect 100% transfer rate, but only 5% of people who were trying to rate the app were actually successful. The problem is that there is no way in iOS 7 to redirect them straight to the...
The 2x scaling only occurs when using the "Best for retina display".  If you choose "Scaled" and "Larger text" or "More space", it is no longer scaled as 2x, which are supported options.  When selecting "More space", it runs at an equivalent 1920x1200, but there are actually 2880x1800 physical pixels.  When running at 1920x1200 on the retina, the text still looks clearer than it does when running on a non-retina display because there are still more pixels used to render...
Why not enable this for other screens as well? I realize that many displays do not have the needed pixels, but I have a Mac mini hooked up to a 1080p TV, but I have to run it at 720p so the text is visible. I have long been waiting for them to let me run at 1080, but scale everything up to allow the text to be the same apparent size as if it was running at 720. The text would be much crisper if rendered for the screen as opposed to letting the TV do the scaling. This...
I walked in to a store last Saturday to decide on the color and they had the one I wanted in stock. They were only accepting weborders, so I used one of their computers to order it and picked it up half an hour later. No line, easy process. But, I guess I had a less-in-demand config: 64GB, silver, T-mobile mini.
I updated my iPad, but find none of the new features worthwhile. It is just a different way of doing things, some a little better and some worse. I decided that it hasn't been worth my effort to update my iPhone and wife's iOS devices. At some point I might if compatibility becomes an issue, but I have not been limited yet and don't feel like I am missing anything.
