I'm not sure exactly how I feel about 10.9. One thing I find very annoying is Apple's deprecation of USB local sync in iTunes for Macintosh users but complete support for Windows users. Grrrr. Would Steve have allowed this, I wonder?   I have little philosophical issues with iCloud; I just have noticed that in the past, it slowed my iPhone to a crawl until I turned it off & presto! iOS gets chippy again. I do find it irksome to depend upon an Apple internet system for my...
Are you an accountant or an attorney?
Quite lovely. Now I'm a liar? Dude, you can now get great taste in a decaffinated coffee. Prior to your arrival, we were discussing local synching of calendar, contacts and notes via a USB cable, iOS device to local Mac host (or vice versa, your pleasure). You cannot do this any longer in Mavericks via iTunes on a Mac. iCloud must be involved. It is not a lie... try it. Plug your iPhone into your 10.9 Mac and try to sync your contacts with iCloud turned off. Sync via...
I tried to keep it simple for you :-)
Thanks, we'll take a look.   http://www.change.org/petitions/apple-bring-the-100-offline-sync-for-ios-back#share
 You cannot sync via USB in OS X 10.9. UNLESS you're running iTunes in Windows.
We want to sync hardwired. We don't want to entrust our hard earned business contacts or our calendar or our documents to any other company. Not just Apple; any company. Apple is special here because of the history of their remarkably poor cloud performance over a relatively long time period. It's a fairly pathetic legacy. It once pissed Steve off.   This is not about photos or music. This is business. We have patent data, product designs and critical competitive...
What’s relatively annoying is that Windows users can still sync their iPhones and iPads with their computer over USB but Mac users are forced to use iCloud. No more USB syncing via iTunes.   Like millions of other Mac users, I run my business on my Macs and synching across devices and computers is critical. Who wants to bet the ranch on iCloud? I'm certainly not big on risking my income, home, business, family on Apple's cloud performance and policy.   How many times...
"...it is our hope that Activation Lock will prove to be an effective deterrent to theft, and that the widespread use of this new system will end the victimization of iPhone users, as thieves learn that the devices have no value on the secondary market."   You don't believe that's really why law enforcement wants this upgrade, right? They want it so they can gain quick access to your iPhone's contents without a court order.   To their chagrin, they're not (yet) allowed...
