Update Whiners

Says Mac-Mike:

What is taking… so long in updating Safari? It's been almost two months now since the last release. And while they're at it, Address Book, iCal and Keynote could also use some work.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that this Mike fellow has never written software or worked in customer service.

Every software update is both "big" (for people on dial-up modems, creating customer service issues - those people prefer not to feel "left behind by 27 updates") and thoroughly tested. Why the hell should there be an update? No "final date" for Safari was set. Chill the heck out. Would you rather you get a nice, solid update or piecemeal improvements that break as much as they fix?

Chill out. I for one am fine with the pace. Write down all the new software that they've introduced - counting updates - in the past 12 months. Got your list? Is it five pages long? Close? Yeah, good, now be quiet and worry about important things.

  2. On his page he reveals that he used to call himself 'PC-Mike.'

    Ugh.

    Another dork who has to proclaim allegiance to one thing or another. Or do so, screw up, then go in the other direction. Grow up already, Mikey.

  3. That's a bit of an inane comment ... who doesn't pledge allegiance of the sort you're talking about to something? By your comment, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you're "pledged allegiance" to Apple. And if not, I imagine you've chosen some platform that you use. Do you need to grow up as well?

    Choosing something doesn't make one childish.

  4. "who doesn't pledge allegiance of the sort"

    Uh, who the fuck runs around calling himself 'Mac David' or 'PC Sammy'?

    No one.

    But Mike not only does this (did it TWICE, for two different platforms!) but he also whines about beta releases. Puh-lease.
