Yosemite 10.10.3 came out a few days ago. I was hopeful and upgraded and then hope flew away.
It flew away and left me with a huge pile of very expensive and almost useless crap.
Nothing had changed.
Crap will be crap.
I’ve owned computers since the mid eighties. Ever waited for one of those first IBM XT’s to boot up?
I had a few home computers too. Commodore Vic 20, Commodore 64, Commodore 128. There was this incredible powerful one made by Acorn for the BBC Computer Literacy Project.
PC’s and laptops. Some well know brands and some less known.
I’ve been working as a system engineer for the past 30 years.
Linux, Windows, good computers and less good ones yet none of them as bad as what I got next.
Two years ago I was in the market for a new computer and after doing some research and friends I trusted telling me I could not do wrong I bought a 27″ iMac with 16 Gb. of RAM.
Since the Yosemite OSX came out my computer is almost useless, extremely slow and reboots without warning. Working on my 6 year old Acer laptop gets things done more quickly.
They say there is a first time for everything. And maybe they even say there is a last time for everything.
I say in this case the first time is also the last time.
Please shoot me if I ever buy a Mac again.
Hell you don’t even have to make it painless.
So the Yosemite 10.10.3 upgrade made no difference. I’m still sitting in front if a fucking useless pile of 27″ electronic horseshit.
I do not want to start to think what kind of Windows supercomputer I could have build with the cash I threw away in the “Apple Store”.
PS… I am still happy with my iPad Air but my ASUS Memopad 7 is working very well too and satisfying me completely at 4 times less the cost of the iPad Air.
My iPhone 4s is becoming slower but that is normal I guess. Apple wants me to buy a new one. I will, in a couple of months. It will be without any doubt an Android based phone.
If I’m stepping on toes I apologise but I am not ever again investing in something so called must have and thus expensive. At least I have the courage to say the Apple stuff sucks big time and that I flushed my hard earned money down the drain.
It sucks and I know it from my own experience.
