Mac and its users: Pro complaints, depression and lack of spirituality 97


Tired fom Apple

Have combined in one material three seemingly completely incompatible concepts. I do not find for yourself the opportunity to somehow divide them according to the logic and meaning, especially in light of some recent events. I like seasoned «Mac-head», becomes something incomprehensible and brewing question: “What’s going on?”

For starters, about the complaint. Here’s the thing. Me as a person, a little understanding of how to run the Finder and message iMessage, even with smiley Emoji, began to ask questions, ask for advice on what is happening with the Mac, just something wrong. Rather, I previously asked questions, but it has happened sporadically, mainly asking friends. Now comes a barrage of questions, write all the same friends, friends of friends write, write friends and complete strangers. Write every day. And everywhere bug me: E-mail, “Twitter», iMessage, Telegram, Facebook, sorry, if not all have time to answer. If before, say, a year or two ago, the meaning of questions was reduced to “How to do it? And there is such a program? And how to do it, but faster and more convenient? “Now ninety eight percent of the subjects – an analysis of the reasons why something in OS X (and in iOS, too) does not work. And, most importantly – increasingly I do not know what to say, just do not have solutions to the problem.

As an example, a friend asked today about the spontaneous reboot MasBook Pro latest model in sleep mode when the lid is closed (!) And how to get rid of this – like a small thing, but unpleasant. In my head instantly outlines logical causes and solutions “to disable Power Nap, reset PRAM and SMC, external drives, and disable the device, disable” heavy “screensaver …” Nothing helped. Just as in 2179 and the same users complained and described similar symptoms on the support forums Apple. Solve the problem simply does not exist in nature. Official comments support staff Apple – too. Or here’s another example: a known problem with disappearing application icons in Launchpad. Colleagues or question about lawlessness with message delivery iMessage on several of his devices, again left without a solution. Or lag when running Spotlight on any device running on iOS 7, even on beta versions for developers. While such questions is no single answer as software patches from Apple. And yes – all these questions came to me for today.

Moreover, reading the thematic forums, communities, blogs or not so famous people, one way or another connected with the subject of Mac, emerges about the same statistics. For example, one of the oldest and most respected community on LiveJournal from, without exaggeration, the bottomless knowledge of Mac OS, where there are answers, advice, discussions and decisions on most issues arising from users Mac, actually turned into a book of complaints. If before every second post in that community was a revelation – a thorough understanding of the situation, are non-trivial solutions, published interesting finds and tips, now reigns there despondency and lack of spirituality, alternating the same questions from newcomers and at least the same type of solutions from the same community members.

Everything easier on a Mac

I admit that part of such events can be seen as a result of the popularization of Apple technology among the population of the former USSR. In Russia there were official shops and representation, it is now possible to buy a Mac, just going to the store and pointing a finger: “I won the one that is thinner!” There was a generation of “fans» Mac, «educated iPhones” – bought the iPhone suddenly realized that Mac they simply vital! Generation that considers the Apple laptop purely as an accessory for daily trips to Starbucks, or, even worse, as a logical continuation of the beloved iPhone with mandatory and all current jailbreak tweaks on it. About myself I can say that, too, sometimes begin to feel that instead of blood flowing in my apple juice, and an eye on the time converted into two FaceTime-camera, but then another.

Before you buy a Mac, clearly decide for yourself exactly why you need one? If flipping “sotsialochki” then do not climb into the jungle, and bought a scroll on your health. I will say this: Mac – naiserezneyshy working tool in the right hands able to do incredible things. And would not put any beta firmware and updating, and God forbid you from jailbreaking. Honestly – I do it a little afraid.

Friends dont let friends use Mac

In general, what is it all about? Comes the realization that you are enjoying Mac not because they like and comfortable, but because the alternatives, in general, there is not yet. Never thought I’d say like that, but unfortunately it’s true. Held until the end! Popularization of products Apple – it’s bad, and those who know the company and what she was doing until iPhone, understand me. With the announcement of the iPhone in 2007, it became clear that Apple has signed his own death warrant – “become popular”, and we all know what happens when a number of quality passes, especially in order to obtain profits. Now in Cupertino just do not have time to keep track of everything: there new iPhone, iOS 7 there, and still would have to think about the iTV and iWatch! Mac and its operating system ceased to be a priority for the company, and this becomes a little uncomfortable … Well, the smell of the new MacBook packaging is still left!
