I saw a report on Forbes saying that iOS 8.1.2 is out. It also said that Apple customers would be angry at the upgrade. You can go read it if you want. I did, and you really don’t have to.
What it basically says is that iOS 8.1 wasn’t perfect. 8.1.1 didn’t make it perfect. 8.1.2 also doesn’t make iOS 8.1 perfect.
In short: iOS 8 is not utopia. It has been upgraded and is still not utopia. Apple customers, denied utopia, are angry.
I installed iOS 8.1.2 on my new iPhone 6 Plus. It still does all the stuff I normally want it to do. I’m not angry. I’m not even disgruntled or annoyed or psychically uncomfortable as a result of iOS 8.1.2.
I must be one of the weird ones.
No surprise, there.
I’ve been reading around and about the innertubes about the new 27″ iMac 5k HD superwhammodyne computer thingy. Yeah. I want one.
I was in an Apple store a few days ago, and there was one on display. I wanted to go see it, but there was a crowd around it, and there was going to be a wait. So I decided to try again some other time. The size and depth of the crowd made me think maybe Eric Schmidt (I think the “m” is silent – it is when I say it.) might be over there trying to swallow a Galaxy Note 4 or something.
Anyway, the reviews I’ve read have been universally positive. It turns out you can upgrade the RAM in it to 32 Gb.
I want one.
I was looking for news about Microsoft. They’re releasing a Steam version of Flight Simulator. Too late. I wanted Flight Simulator for the Mac a long time ago. When I had my SE, Flight Simulator was my favorite thing to do on it. Then the bastards discontinued it. Then they quit supporting it. Then they could kiss my lily-white ass.
So, no. I will NOT be buying the Steam version of Flight Simulator. Thank you very much.
A classic of the first order.
My list for today of companies who are scared of Merry Christmas: Samsung and Heineken. They both ran Happy Holidays ads. I wasn’t buying much from either of them anyway, but now it’s on purpose.
If you say Happy Holidays, I’m not buying anything from you.
If “Merry Christmas” offends you, how about “Fuck off.” Does that offend you?
