Apple Core Rot: More Views

To MPG’s knowledge, MPG was the first to seriously raise the Apple Core Rot issue a year ago.

Some new coverage on Apple Core Rot on the web:

What’s worse than a worm in an Apple?
Half a worm!

Waiter, there is a fly in every serving of Apple kitchen-sink soup these days, well actually in every ingredient that goes into Apple soup. Big complex operating systems with more and more superfluous eye candy lead to more and more security bugs and usability problems. It’s the way software works: more complexity = more bugs, period.

Virtually all of these issues persist months after OS X Yosemite was released. And no doubt will never be fixed, or perhaps will be replaced by new bugs as Apple arbitrarily breaks things and rips out good useful features by inreeasingly disprectful-to-users judgment. A few of these issues are very serious (security), and inexcusable.

There are dozens of other problems MPG can’t afford the time to document, many of which degrade usability each and every day, including severe performance issues in Photoshop, 4K display support issues, complete failing to support technologies available for years (10-bit color), and a general crapware approach to the system (and iOS). No ordinary user can now use a Mac in more than a basic way without needing an expert helper. Even using an iPhone via iTunes befuddles your author; it’s a kitchen-sink disaster of a user interface. It’s a sad commentary on the company which once rightly carried the standard of usability in computing.
