Fanboi

Lest you think I am a total fanboi, here’s some things that bug the shit outta me:

  • When I eject a disk, MacOS closes the finder window. Why!?! I was using that.
  • When I get into the car, Podcasts starts the last one I was listening too even if I had stopped it by hand. I stopped it because I wanted quiet or was bored with it. Respect my wishes. If it’s stopped, leave it stopped.
  • This also leads to: respect my silence. I stopped the podcast or music and put the phone on mute. Then I listened to a voicemail on Airpods. When I put the Airpods away, the damn podcast or music started automatically through the speakers even though I had been listening on Airpods before. Not cool to start playing music out loud in the middle of a meeting or conference. Very not cool.
  • WiFi Assist just doesn’t work. Why are you trying to hang onto the WiFi as I drive away from my house? You know I just got in the car because you told me that it’ll take me 15 minutes to get to work. So fucking let go of the WiFi and go to LTE.
  • And fix the LTE. I’m no big Qualcomm fan, but the Intel modems seriously suck.
  • And fix the “A Song” bug. Why why why would you start the music in my car with the first song alphabetically. I’ve deleted whatever the first song is twenty times now because I got tired of hearing it.
  • Fix iTunes. I can’t even fill up the 512 GB iPhone because iTunes sucks. I’ve got the music. iTunes seems to be incapable of filling it.
  • Stop the app shuffle. When I try to drag an app on iOS to a folder, the folder jumps away. You got to get the timing just right. I can drop a hook shot from 20 feet, but I can’t drag an app to a folder.
  • Make the trackpad smaller again. The last gen MBP trackpad was so much better than the 2016+ it’s not funny. Palm rejection works like Windows now. Badly.
  • Does no one at Apple use their laptop to take notes in meetings? If they did, they’d get rid of this loud-ass keyboard.
  • USB-C good. MagSafe better. USB-C MagSafe would be best.
  • Why can’t iOS Safari play GIFs inline?
  • Whatever happened to WiFi MAC address spoofing to keep from being monitored at malls, airports, etc? Apple made a big deal of it, it never really worked, then it went away.
  • Why, oh why, in the middle of the night, does my work laptop insist on taking over the connection to my home Bluetooth mouse? It’s got its own sitting right there. My home machine is connected to the home mouse? Yet I wake up and can’t use the damn mouse because work laptop has dropped its connection to Work Mouse and taken over Home Mouse. About once a week. The only way to fix it is to go over and turn off BT on Work MBP. Which I will forget I’ve done when I get back to work. Deleting Home Mouse yet again from Work MBP connections doesn’t work, it doesn’t really delete it.

 

Seriously, it’s like no one at Apple actually uses their damn devices or they’d fix this shit.
