    1. When they start issuing Service Packs, I’m writing Cook a nasty letter. It will be doused in Ballmers sweat so that he will realize what a stinker it is to copy anything Microsoft.

    2. Are you new to Apple or something? As a user since 1985, we’ve always had the incremental system number, dot something, dot whatever, updates what is the big deal with complaining about this one like it’s never been done before? Just the thing to do to find another Tim complaint?

      Getting quite pathetic.

    1. You have obviously never used a Mac. Supplemental Updates have been around for a very long time.

      Stick to trolling the iOS device threads. Or better yet, just GTFO.

  1. There are also updates for Epson printers. I counted more than 400 models and my Artisan wasn’t even listed. Does ANYONE know why any company would have so many models?

  2. Second update and fixes none of the problems dealing with overheating and setting off the fans like crazy as well as the numerous episodes of having to watch the spinning ball of hell. To top it all, they made it extremely difficult to downgrade so you are pretty much stuck until they decide to acknowledge the numerous complaints. very disappointed with Apple. this cat was not ready to be released into the wild.

  3. Get used to it. This is how modern software is built: small increments instead of massive updates that wreck your machine and are hard to unravel.
    Surprised it took Apple so long to catch on.

  4. Anyone else having to reboot way too frequently? My iMac is losing contact with the Internet (the DSL password thing comes up) and it’s constantly losing track of attached ithings. Still happening after this update, unfortunately. It might be because my extended AppleCare just expired.

    1. Indeed. The Windows 3 finger salute a la Apple… RESTART! Restart my mid 2012 MPB 15 RD and mid 2011 MBA at least a few times a week just to get things looking right again after a few days use.

  5. And what even better => they also released a Lexmark printer update 2.9 which fixed wireless scanning again after last week’s 2.8 update that came with 10.7.5 botched it once more (2.4-2.6 were botched as well as far as I am concerned).

    Thanks Apple, that was quick, you saved me a bit of bitching on the support forums. =-)
