  1. I seriously wish Apple would release their software when it’s ready. It completely sucks to update all the iPhones, iPads, Watches and Macs of my family and my company. Dear Tim, I am still a fanboy. But … you know.

    1. Well, they’ve tested the snot out of this, had a lengthy public beta where (presumably) a large number of users played with their phones and reported problems.

      As a programmer, I must say it is virtually impossible – nay, impossible – to test all paths through all of the code in systems as large as this. And, sometimes, it’s not even the path – it’s the timing of the code being executed, what else is going on at the same time. These kinds of bugs are really, really hard to find and even harder to test.

      I think they’re doing a pretty good job. Just compare this to Windows and you’ll see what I mean.

  2. OFF TOPIC

    Do not download the Mac version of Safari 14. Apple has broken JavaScript to the extent that pages such as eBay (and my bank) just don’t load correctly. Youtube is another one that has been affected.

    You have to keep toggling through Preferences/Security to get a page to load and even then it isn’t a complete fix.

    The extent of the problem is so extreme that this appears to be a rushed release (again) and Apple needs to be shamed over this screwup.

    I’ll check my Time Machine backups or, it’s Firefox for me. When it comes to releases Apple really is a slack company.

    I’ll be posting this multiple times to warn people about this stuffup.
