wow as a bigger gently caress off to the people who hate big phones for being unusable with one hand theyíre adding a folding mechanism to ensure you cannot possibly do anything simultaneously as you hold and use the device

the only way you're getting a smolphone these days is if they figure out folding screens, and then a manufacturer decides to put a second screen on the outside that you can use while the phone is folded up

lol the screens aren’t even close to the same color temperature

it's the exact same display on both (which is why the left one has a notch without a camera beneath it), probably a combination of different viewing angles and bad photos

honestly as dumb as this is I think it's still better than all the stupid folding phones

still, nobody should ever buy this

Six Reasons Why iOS 13 and Catalina Are So Buggy

quote:

Apple pays special attention to new products like the iPhone 11, looking for serious customer problems. It jumps on them quickly and generally does a good job of eradicating major issues. But any bugs that are minor or unusual enough to survive this early scrutiny may persist forever.

Remember what I said about changes causing new bugs? If an engineer accidentally breaks a working feature, thatís called a regression. Theyíre expected to fix it.

But if you file a bug report, and the QA engineer determines that bug also exists in previous releases of the software, itís marked ďnot a regression.Ē By definition, itís not a new bug, itís an old bug. Chances are, no one will ever be assigned to fix it.

all software has bugs, some known and some unknown. every software engineering organization must make decisions about which bugs to fix, which bugs to delay fixing, and which bugs to live with. some bugs are ignored, thatís a fact of software development on a schedule.

so why are there more bugs now compared with "good apple" of the mid-2000s? i used tiger into the late 2000s because i had a ppc powerbook and couldn't afford a new computer and it was rock solid. is it really a mass delusion?

like i get that i was running 10.4.11 and that's why it was so solid but that's part of my point, apple software is never allowed solidify, it's always new new new and there's no chance for a major release to mature

programmers naturally want to work on building new things instead of fixing old bugs, because they find it more fun.

management is supposed to curb those tendencies and make sure that enough emphasis is put on polish and bugfixing existing stuff instead of making GBS threads out new buggy features

occasionally though, they'll get the idea to start rewarding programmers based on the new things they've built, and not rewarding bug fixing work, which exacerbates the underlying issue.

Excuses, excuses. The point is that there's some MAJOR bugs in the OS at this moment, bugs that should never have been let out in the wild. I'm not talking mild iChat issues like icons not appearing in some cases. But iChat not working at all for people? That's supposed to be acceptable? Errors with sparse disk images that corrupts them? How does this get out (esp since it was really easy to find: Create one, copy data to it, eject, hey, its corrupt!). And this on top of the MAJOR problems in 10.3 with file vault and sparse images.

osx pre 10.4 was a godawful shitshow that barely worked and ran like rear end, osx post 10.4 has been a godawful shitshow that barely works with endless rewrites of basic functionality and constant regressions

in summation, osx has never been good outside of a very narrow window that lasted about a year, 14 years ago

you're conflating initial releases (which indeed have always been bad) with final versions (used to be stable, now they're not)

apple really should switch to a tick-tock model, with yearly os releases alternating between 1) new features and ui changes and 2) bug fixes and performance updates. the naming scheme sometimes shows evidence of this (leopard/snow leopard, lion/mountain lion, etc) but theyve never committed to it
