    1. Backup drive $100.

      Time Machine – free
      SuperDuper – free
      Carbon Copy Cloner – free

      It would seem to me, you cost yourself at least $100 and two days work, not the update. Take a bit of accountability.

      Even after a horrible update, you could have been up an running in the time it takes to reboot your machine, while holding he option key.

      If you need an education, I can provide that for free as well.

      Google… How to make a bootable clone OSX.

      1. Not everyone is a tech-head. Apple aims for the segment who are clueless about computing. Not clueless in a bad way but clueless as in they don’t want to learn the nuts and bolts of computing, backup, restoring from backup and all the rest of it.

        Apple has $100 billion in the cash. Their beta testing should have been more extensive to catch obvious bugs in the first place.

        The user is not at fault when Apple f***s up.

        1. That’s why I tell all my customers and friends to never update right out of the gate. Wait 2 or 3 days.

          AND

          Most importantly, “If it is a production Mac that you cannot afford to have down, all the more reason to wait on updates. It was working fine up until then, another 72 hours won’t kill ya.”

          I never understood people that jump on updates 2 seconds after they are released.

          Oh, as to “Their beta testing should have been more extensive…”, all human programmers make mistakes and miss bugs.

          See my first point to get around that problem.

        2. I really hate to agree with you (just for general purposes), but you do have a point. Many users, including the recent switchers, will simply install when notified, or have their computer set to install in the background. Then when something goes wrong they won’t have a clue.

          Luckily, most of the problems with updates affect a small percentage of users, often due to third party conflicts that a non-power user might never experience. But it does seem like they are occurring more frequently, and with the growing base of Mac users it won’t get any better.

        3. I believe owning a computer is a lot like owning a car.
          I don’t know how to fix my car if it breaks; but I do know how to put gas in it and check the oil.
          So if you know how to update your computer you should know how to backup your computer.

          AND NO YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A TECH-HEAD TO BACK UP YOUR MAC. Apple has already taken the clueless people into account.
          This is how easy it is:
          1) Go to store, buy external hard drive (ask for help from employee if you don’t know which one to buy)
          2) plug in hard drive into your mac
          3) turn on time machine (its in system preferences)
          4) In time machine preferences select the external hard drive to use for backups
          5) forget about it!!! until you need it for some reason e.g. an update with a bug

          If you use your computer for business and don’t backup you are just plane stupid or ignorant. If a bug doesn’t get you, then a failed hard drive or something else will!! If you don’t want to do your own IT work then hire someone who will.

      2. Bingo, Bill! I use Time Machine at home and at work. I also regularly create a clone HDD using Carbon Copy Cloner, and store that clone offsite. I could recover from a bad OS update in minutes. Cloud backups are another option, although the bandwidth requirements could be prohibitive for home use.

        Anyone who is using a computer in a mission critical role will follow a similar (or more rigorous) backup strategy. In addition, OS or other software upgrades should be performed on a test machine for a while to flush out bugs before updating the primary business machine.

    2. Damn Apple and their free, optional , frequent security updates!

      How dare they allow me to install on a mission critical machine with no backup drive!

      Screw Tim Cook and their nearly instant update to fix a first world problem of my own making!

      Waaaaahhhhh

      1. He’s just trying to blame Apple for the $200/2 day bender he went on. He should have watched the “Hangover” movies and not mixed booze and pills. I’ll bet you’ve found yourself in this predicament, eh Cubert?

  1. I read about the problem with PowerPC yesterday. I ran system profiler to find all the PowerPC apps. I then threw them in the trash. Amoung the software:

    Quicken 2004
    Canon Utilities
    Appleworks
    an old version of iWorks
    (I purchased a family pack for iWorks 4 – it works fine, I use Sun’s Open Office because it’s compatible with Open Office on linux)
    World Book 2004, I don’t use this anymore, and it’s 1 Gbyte
    Setup Assisant – what’s that?
    iPod Software Updater – I should test my iPod to see if it works!
    EarthLink Total Access – what’s that?
    Asia Text Extras – I need French, but not Japanese
    AirPort Setup Assistant for Graphite and Snow
    Adobe Reader Download Manager
    Netscape
    Marble Blast Gold – what on earth is this?
    Photoshop G5 Update
    Emergency Records Organizer
    LaCie Backup Support v1.1.2
    Welcome to Panther.app
    /Library/Application Support/Privilege/Common/License Manager
    /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaEmbedding.framework
    – what’s that?
    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/LiveType.framework
    /Library/Frameworks/SMK* – what are they?
    /Library/Frameworks/WBHomeScreen.framework
    /Library/Frameworks/WBMediaProvider.framework

    they are backed up on Time Machine

  2. SuperDuper is the best and most intuitive backup software.
    It makes a BOOTABLE backup of your entire main drive and when needed just hold down the option key and choose the
    backup drive and you are back in business. And it’s FREE.
    The faster version is $27.95 available on their website.

  3. I don’t know what APPLE HAS DONE to their software offerings. I can NOT get iPhoto to work worth a SHITE on my latest gen of mac mini. A TOTAL TOTAL TOTAL PIECE OF FSCKING SHITE. Come on Apple MFs. Don’t start letting the quality slip like this. The Mac Mini is a COMPLETE POS!!!!!!!!!!!! Ruining my day!! I have been a APPLE fan for 30+ years and this newest piece of hardware is SHIT SHIT SHIT. I am starting to doubt that APPLE has the focus to keep all of their stuff up to date. They get the iPad and iPhone feeding them now they think they don’t have to try??? FUSKING garbage is the new MAC MINI. Never have I been so disappointed in a piece of shit like this. Even Winblows is starting to sound appealing over this. WFT Apple, WTF?? Steve would have fired the WHOLE mac mini team if he had the POS I have been trying to make work. It basically isn’t capable of computing and chewing gum at the same time. I have to shut everything else down to run 1 program. Wifes iMac is awesome and works great the MAC MINI SUX SUX SUX. I hate that POS. It is a MF POS!!!!!!! Arghhhhh Apple WTF?? 🙁

  5. The last major update for apple tv was a fuck up too. I gotta take it down to the apple store to get it updated because I don’t have the stupid mini USB cable.

    Not saying Steve job doesn’t fuck up, but after he past away it just seems like apple fucks more!
