Just stop. If you have beach balls, you have a problem with your HDD, or some corruption in the installation of the OS or a particular App.
Its the OS out of the box...its your unique machine and scenario. But, much easier to whine ignorantly about, "Mavericks got problems" and blame Apple, then to deal with a complicated issue.
I've been working on Macs professionally for nearly 2 decades....and OS X from its first day. If I see beach balls, I know it has NOTHING to do with Apple's programming.
You have me confused with the original poster. I was mocking him as you are. The guy waltzes in here squawking about beach balls and demands Apple do something about it. He has no clue but makes a statement as if it is a known fact. What’s even more hilarious about these bozos is that every time an update is rumored, announced, released we get these same inane comments. “I hope this fixes my annoying bug that no one else has but I am certain everyone has experienced.” “Apple better fix such and such this time or else.” And then when their bug remains they go into a rage about “Steve is dead and Apple’s QA sucks now.” “Don’t they test this stuff before they release it.” These types become literally obsessed with their issue. They focus totally on it. They think about it all day long. They invent an entire universe of similarly minded misfits. They count Google hits. They report pages and views in Apple’s discussion forums. They start blogs and invite fellow bitchers and whiners to pile on. They threaten to expose Apple’s hidden agenda and personal vendetta against them. They claim they are moving to another platform in revenge but they keep on raging away. And they start petitions!
What is a ‘duibo’? When Urban Dictionary doesn’t even have a single definition (used by one guy and his friends in one town, downvoted to oblivion), that tells me you just got the word wrong.
Is it a portmanteau of ‘dweeb’ and ‘guido’? I’m neither Italian nor a dweeb.
Right, because that’s when you get people defending Apple. Not what you claim.
Nice strawman. When you want to actually discuss anything whatsoever, including your original problems that only your machine is having, feel free to post again.

Anyone else use Reminders? I found that reminders work really well to keep my calendar uncluttered. I use them as a suspense file....have around 15 categories and a total of maybe 300 reminders which pop up at the appropriate time to...remind me of stuff. Then if it's important enough to go into a calendar I can do that.
The reason I ask is that since I find it such a powerful tool I naturally notice all the things that could stand improvement. Anyone else on board with this one? And, if so, do you find that Reminders is kind of flaky in many respects (Ex: Completed items take a long time to move, sometimes do not move, move to the top instead of another page, and in ios7 we lost the ability to select a calendar date from a real calendar to see what's happening on that date in all categories.
I'd kind of like to see some work in this area as well as in Mail, which still has not recovered.

Everybody thinks their experience is typical. No one wants to admit they have no clue what’s going on. Reach out and blame somebody else is the solution?
Does this include the people saying that they themselves are not having problems?
What beach balls? I've been running 10.9 Since Beta 4, runs silky smooth. Maybe you should stop taking your one (probably made up) problem and making it into something greater.
Your experience is just as anecdotal as Slide023’s — you see that, right …?
It's more than one problem. Encode times for H.265 are still very slow. I read that some encoders take a minute to encode just one frame. Accordingly to some of the developers of Handbrake it will take a few years before we see a widespread use of the new standard.
No, you have issues with your machine. Very typical of un-educated computer users to throw their hands up, blame the maker, and whine on the internet.
That always fixes problems.
there are many things in life you shouldn't have to do.......
a clean install of a .0 release is maybe always best for long term stability.
Yeah, I use Reminders, though not as much as you do. And I've noticed some flakiness, too, though it seems to work pretty well most of the time.
Personally, I think that Clock/Alarm/Reminders/Calendar need to be synced together a bit more well.
You've just described my experience with 10.9 as well. Absolutely awful. If this is post-Jobs Apple, count me out.
