Welcome Catalina

Apple released their new MacOS and as always I waited a few days for them to find all the faults and fix them before I downloaded the “Catalina”.

First of all, the download went well, took an hour or so but then… Completely trapped in a never ending update. After 7 hours I was forced to turn it all off and restart the system, and surprise, It worked perfectly. Have no idea why the screen said “Ställer in din MAC” for 7 hours.

So now I wait for all the new features to fu** up my life. Why? All updates, MacOS or iPhone, iPad and Apple TV always introduce something I never asked for, don’t want and can’t understand why someone at Apple even thought of it, and worse got it approved!

All that and the surprise that bad stuff still exists in the systems. Right now three features I really want to get rid off is the stupid feature in “Photos” called “Faces”. No one on this earth can be using this extremely stupid feature as long as it’s not working on all devises, and tag 100% random. For example I have friends who automatically are tagged with their own face as well as statues, paintings and animals, together with the fact that the same person is tagged with different faces on my iPhone, iPad and Mac Pro.

Apple, please take away that, NO ONE USES IT.

Number two is also in Photos, the selfie folder. Why? I don’t want a folder with only selfies and the nightmare is to not be able to delete it.

And then, my in Swedish so called “Käpphäst” (a thing, feature or situation you talk about for years and nothing happens, so you continue to repeat it, over and over), Apple Music.

And this is something I don’t understand why Apple don’t fix cause they want to earn money, I guess…

So if Apple just allowed their users, to connect to Apple Music, and when doing so, just with the introduction of a tick box; “I don’t want to convert my existing mp3s”, stop your complete music library to change all tagging and metadata, Apple would easy double their subscribers on Apple Music. But no, year after year, no changes at all. Why don’t they want to make money and beat Spotify and Deezer from a user experience point of view?

So, this is my reflections after less than a few hours with MacOS Catalina. I am sure I will find reasons to get back to the subject at a later stage.

Have a nice day
