It’s not just the data. Doing a bit of trip planning this evening, and mobile http://t.co/ku2Nagdn is way more readable than Apple Maps.
@irons Yeah, 10.8 still seems pretty buggy. Also seeing problems with Mail, Contacts, and Calendar (though some of that may be iCloud).
@irons I actually had that on, but it only logged the last bit of the conversation. :-(
@danielpunkass I probably could have copied and pasted, but I already closed the window because I assumed that the Print command had worked.
There is a .ichat file in ~/Library/Messages/Archive/2012-09-28/ but it only includes the tail end of the conversation.
Apparently I just lost a chat transcript from Messages. No auto-log like iChat, no export command, printed PDF omitted scrolled-off text.
@stroughtonsmith Seems to me that antennagate was comparatively easier to fix. Design new antenna. Ship. May take years to fix maps data.
@tofias Sticky Playlists has good playback controls, but it doesn’t seem to understand podcast organization…
@mikeabdullah Seems to be a near-endless supply of these sorts of issues. Tough to know what you’re getting into or whether end is in sight.
@sethdill Just a little. I don’t think the OS ever supported different remembered positions for different display configurations.
@Teggy OK, let’s continue this via e-mail.
@sethdill Nope. You just need Moom.
@tofias I”ll give it a try and see.
@tofias Looks interesting; thanks. Does the played state sync back to iTunes?
@mrgan Food mill?
@wooliegeek Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
@grynspan Not crashes, hangs. Yes, it’s when actively sending an Apple event. Rebooting seems to fix it.
@grynspan I’m afraid you’re right.
@grynspan AESendMessage is part of CoreServices and has no replacement API. I assume lots of non-deprecated stuff is built on it.
@bwebster Neither the sender nor the target is sandboxed.
@bwebster Currently, several customers are seeing this targeting SpamSieve from various apps. I haven’t reproduced it here yet.
@bwebster Thanks. Restarting the Mac seemed to help one user’s AESendMessage problem. Haven’t heard back from others yet.
@grynspan Why is that a mistake? Known issues on 10.8?
@cortig I don’t see any of those. Are they in /Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/?
Also seeing weird hangs in AESendMessage starting with OS X 10.8.2.
@simX And sometimes I can get a blue screen if I unplug/replug the Thunderbolt. Very strange.
@simX It’s showing frozen screensaver with frozen mouse. (Which means it froze in the short interval before Energy Saver would kick in.)
Not sure what’s going on with OS X 10.8.2, but this was the third time it wouldn’t wake from screensaver. No kernel panic logs.
@cocoalabs Yesterday my dad asked me how he could downgrade to iOS 5. (He’d tried the new Maps app.)
@pilky Yeah, you’d think the Mac App Store would use Notification Center. :-(
@danielpunkass I think this may have been in Lion. But, yeah, it’s nice.
@uliwitness Also, the Mac App Store support form still doesn’t offer 10.8 as an OS choice. :-)
The Web site says Apple will e-mail me back in 24 hours; the automated e-mail says 48 hours; it’s been 96 hours.
@stormchild Yes, the failure modes are worrying. At least for calendars I think there are .ics files hidden somewhere.
@shinypb Thanks. I want something that syncs with iTunes, though.
I found my THINK Reference .dmg but the icons are just showing up as Unix executables. Perhaps there are some good PICT resources in there…
@pborenstein Good choice.
@jablair I have PBS out of Burlington. Vermont was late getting the iPhone, too.
@stormchild The Mac version of iPhoto also uses Google Maps.
At least Aperture 3.4 still uses Google Maps…
@nathangaber Wow, you’re right. So I guess the solution is just to delete the Podcasts app, and then Podcasts show up in Music again.
@iacas Not to mention that Podcasts truncates what little text there is telling me what I’m listening to.
Wondering whether you guys are in the future. I was all set to watch @gruber on Charlie Rose last night, but the TiVo only had Tom Friedman.
@rossbelmont Haha, let us at least hold out some hope.
@VTPG Interesting; thanks for the link.
@danielpunkass And it’s not even like Final Cut Pro where you could at least keep the old version installed.
@danielpunkass I agree that they *can*. But they had something 5.x that was very good and threw it away in favor of a very rough 1.0.
@danielpunkass Looks like I interpreted your second part in a different way than you meant.
@paulhagstrom I don’t expect quick fixes, either; they’ve been working on both for a while. I’ll likely stay on iOS 5 until Google Maps app.
@danielpunkass I agree with the first part. Second part doesn’t seem to be very true, especially with iOS.
@paulhagstrom Podcasts also has laggy scrolling, even on a 4S.
@paulhagstrom Podcasts (even 1.1) is a total disaster as far as I can see. Some 3rd apps that are good, but they don’t sync with iTunes.
@danielpunkass It’s not just the data; it’s the amount of detail.
How many more updates before I stop having to manually delete Mail’s .emlx files so it doesn’t display attachments as inline Base64 text?
@chockenberry Even better: on a crappy connection, Android supports cached Google Maps. iOS doesn’t. Not sure whose fault, but it sucks.
@chockenberry Hasn’t Google Maps used vectors on Android for years now?
I don’t mean to be a buzzkill, but as a user Paranorama seems to be the only feature I want in iOS 6. Maps and Podcasts are downgraded.
If Apple is going to purposely break apps in a security update, they should seed it.
@wilshipley So far the maps I’ve seen make me think I should stay with iOS 5.
@invalidname What’s the benefit of an affiliate link for a free app? Just tracking your influence?
@simX Me, too. I press Esc and then the next time I use the mouse it’s usually better.
@rentzsch I only want it to reopen my Finder windows. But I’d settle for all of them including the Finder ones. Seems impossible with 10.8.
@mhenders The main new feature I want in the EarPods is not breaking after a couple of months.
@ThomasBrand Yes, but apparently it’s a lottery whether the new screen fixes it. And then you have to contend with breakage during repair.
Well, that makes four consecutive MacBook Pros with hardware problems in their first two years. http://t.co/dPze4Fcf
@chuanp I suppose that depends on what you mean by “secure."
@lapcat Let us know if you figure it out.
@kongtomorrow Yes, now observe how many of them are missing.
@kongtomorrow That doesn’t work when you care about the full 10.x.y version (e.g. to compare against when you know a bug was fixed).
@tgaul One would imagine, but given how buggy Podcasts 1.0.2 is I’m not assuming anything.
Any tips for how to fix your address book iCloud syncing when contacts are in different groups on Mac and iPhone?
@tgaul I’m gonna make sure the Podcasts app actually works before updating to iOS 6.
@rbrockerhoff Do you have an algorithm or table?
@Jury And lastly, macros to compare arrays, dicts, and sets and report exactly where the differences are.
@Jury A macro to check that an object is of the expected class, and if not say which class it actually was.
@Jury A macro to compare file URLs, since unequal URLs can be equivalent.
@Jury I have macros that cast arguments to NSInteger and NSUInteger since the type mismatches for STAssertEquals usually aren’t due to bugs.
@Jury For example, I defined my own macros that make the “description” parameter optional; I rarely use it.
@Jury Wish it had more concise macros and supported more types of checks natively.
@irons Interesting that .bash_profile works. I had tried setting CODESIGN_ALLOCATE in the current shell (with “export”) and that didn’t.
@danielpunkass Sorry to hear that saga’s still going on. I think they finally fixed mine by mail, but haven’t fully exercised it yet (rMBP).
@jimcorreia Just be glad you only had to pay the upgrade price. Oh.
@grynspan Mac. Since Mountain Lion.
Has anyone else Radared that bug in Mail where the unread/flagged state for the selected message doesn’t update in the list pane?
@kevinwalzer Doesn’t seem weird at all to feel liberated from that bundle of hurt.
@kevinwalzer It’s not just the shell. Try launching an app or opening a document in another app from a sandboxed app.
@bbum You have experience with infinity? :-) I’m talking more about the user than user level processes. Though my code does use F_NOCACHE.
@bbum Rebooting, quitting processes, and using “purge” are not supposed to be necessary in theory, but they sure do help.
@bbum I wouldn’t use that code. But my experience (10.0-10.8) is that it’s wishful thinking that the system caching will do the right thing.
@jsnell Me too, but the problems started with Safari under Lion. I use Chrome as a site-specific browser for Google Docs.
@ThomasBrand Looks like a cool idea.
@ThomasBrand Time Capsule never worked for me for longer than a couple days. Always worked for my parents, until now.
@ThomasBrand Time Machine backup from internal iMac drive to an internal Time Capsule drive, via Ethernet.
@davidrstites Yes: “An error has occurred. Please report the error to Apple Inc. by emailing the error detail to email@example.com.”
@davidrstites No. I think I went through that for my own Time Machine troubles (didn’t help). And now I went to check and Radar’s down. :-(
And now Time Machine has corrupted my mother's backup. She has about the cleanest Lion system imaginable.
Starting on 10.8, “codesign -f -s -“ says "object file format is unsuitable" unless codesign_allocate (from Xcode.app) is in the PATH.
Adjusted server code to use authenticated SMTP. This should make it more likely that order confirmations and SN lookup e-mails get through.
@nriley Thanks, but that doesn’t actually let you search by app. Also, weird installer package that puts .app into /Applications/Utilities.
The Keyboard pref pane doesn't show the complete Services titles.
Seems like an interface failure that LaunchBar-grepping an application's Info.plist file is the quickest way to see its list of services.
