It’s Amateur Hour at Apple

OS X Mavericks is the most bug-riddled release yet; every day various bugs bedevil me, like black flies in the high North. After a while, one mostly forgets about them, “scratching” without thinking. But they don’t ever go away; they hover patiently and stealthily move in. Black flies leave ugly red welts; Mavericks ingrains time-wasting habits to work around bugs*.

OS X 10.9.1 Mavericks makes one “fix” to Apple Mail (think “fix” as in corruption): shortly after updating, Apple Mail deleted my entire “VIP” list. Gone, never to be seen again. Not one entry. Start from scratch. This is a data loss bug, the most offensive kind. I can reconstruct that list (all 30 entries or so), since the original emails are not deleted (I hope), but in the context of the various other bugs that bedevil me every single day in Mavericks, I find myself wishing for the good old days of Mountain Lion.

So what do I do about it? Get my next fix with a new Mac Pro. Irritating is still better than awful.

Early signs of a company in decline include complete lack of awareness of deteriorating quality control along with construction of a corporate temple. And Tim Cook ain’t Steve Jobs. Big trains have lots of inertia in their favor.

* Finder list view and file open and save dialogs are badly broken in some views, for starters. They waste my time every single day.
