Let's get the skinny on what fixes Apple's included in this release. Those are a bit more important than the photo app for many of us at the moment who are struggling with Window Server bugs that have been lingering since first dev previews, etc. LOTS of problems Apple still needs to resolve here on 10.10.x.
99 cents a month for 20gb dude
$19.99/month for 1 TB...dude.
Ok, I maybe get by with the 500 GB plan, but that's still $10/month which adds up. 20 GB is fine if all you had were the snapshots you took with your phone and probably would be sufficient if I had the option to only upload the photos on want on my other devices, but it appears to be all or nothing.
Can you still spell "skeumorphic" boys and girls? :-D
Well, hope I like renting Adobe software then, as Photos complexifies my life by being too simple. Most the photos I work with are scanned family history stuff and scans of film-based fine art photography that needs to be carefully sorted by date, family branch and other variables like degree of restoration, duplicates of TIFF scans and various degrees of jpg copies suitable for various destinations - and the fact that none of these contain useful metadata for auto-organization.So 15 years of that work (and personal photos - organized by whether it's family, friends, performance by musical peers and my own performance) - is sitting in carefully chosen hierarchical nested folders which I imagine aren't replicable in any cloud storage Apple offers. Similarly, after seeing the initial results, I've never checked the let iTunes organize my music button. So far, while recognizing I'm likely a pretty far outlier on Apple's customer spectrum, I find most of this work to be ANI: Artificial Non-Intelligence.
This is an interesting thread. But for many of us, what we are hoping for from 10.10.3 is, at last, a fix for the terrible slowdown and freezing and spinning beach ball that have resulted from the upgrade to Yosemite. There have been posts and complaints about this problem for many months in lots of places on the Internet. Many people have found that Yosemite has made their computers more or less unusable. The problem is within applications and between applications.
Note: my beach ball started spinning in the middle of typing this message. I had to wait and wait for it to stop. Imagine what it's like to deal with this all the time, every day!--which is, again, a complaint that many others beside me have made. We need help!
