Sure wish Calendar would remember that I’ve turned off its notifications on the Mac.
@leebennett I think I may have done so initially, before the current settings layout, and forgot about it.
@optshiftk It sounds like iCloud backups are encrypted on disk but that Apple can unlock them—not the case for iTunes backups.
@optshiftk Seems like you are right about what the backups include. I’m not convinced about the encryption, depending on what that means.
@jpohh It’s too bad, because this is something lots of people want, and it’s tricky to do it yourself. Good case to put it in framework.
@jpohh There have always been problems, and I keep hearing about more.
@radiofreelunch Yes, FogBugz is the reason I figured out this was happening.
Lots of customers are sending me PNG files with ".jpg" as the extension. Anyone know what causes this? Seems unlikely to be user error.
Still seeing the iOS bug where Spotlight shows the search list on top of a grid of pixelated app icons.
@morrick One of the best keyboards ever, except for the arrow keys.
@avidrissman Wait until you try Thunderbolt.
Apple Mail is not saving rule changes to disk because of an error loading metadata from iCloud.
@ameaijou I think that’s been happening to me, too.
@uliwitness Yeah, but why didn’t it download a new version automatically?
@mbcharbonneau Neither of Apple’s two pieces of advice—that the OS will tell me the app is damaged and that I should restart—worked.
Not sure whether it’s their fault or Apple’s, but @ReadKit no longer launches for me due to a receipt/signer issue.
@FogCreekStatus The release date says 2015 instead of 2016.
@landonfuller I suppose you’re right. Could it be any other way?
@Usr_NeXT Yes, it’s frustrating that some of the Post commenters don’t seem to understand what Apple is being asked to do.
@DevMateApp Is your SDK open source?
@rosyna In terms of actual problems affecting Mac users, I read a lot more stories about bugs and bad apps than this type of exploit.
@rosyna I’m familiar with that, but it seems like a relatively small risk compared with plain bugs (like Adobe’s) and malicious apps.
@rosyna But, aside from your example of Flash, where is the code that’s exploiting these bugs?
@rosyna So you’re saying that the reason the Mac App Store requires sandboxing is to protect against Flash, which most apps don’t use?
@rosyna Where is that code running? And why wouldn’t it also be able to make the app ask the user which files to destroy, as you say?
@rosyna I’m not sure how the original reason the technology was developed is relevant to the policy decision about using it now.
@rosyna I don’t remember that being presented as the main motivation. I don’t think anyone’s worried about apps accidentally printing.
@rosyna Why not? Isn’t that part of why the Mac App Store requires sandboxing, as a backstop against malware?
@rosyna A bug from a legit developer is not malware or an exploit. I think you’re misunderstanding what his point was.
@rosyna That's not what's happening here.
@danielpunkass That had happened to me in the cold as well.
Seems to have worked except that icloud.com says there were 19 contacts that failed to import, and it won’t tell me which ones.
Restoring Grandma’s contacts: download AddressBook folder from CrashPlan, open in VMware, export .vcf, import into icloud.com.
@mdhughes Fixing but not communicating is only really a problem if they close the issue and the fix ended up being for something else.
“Crashes are down” is not a response to “death of a thousand cuts.” It's a non sequitur.
And…I just got another password prompt after unlocking just a few hours ago—to purchase a free app.
It’s that developers have so little confidence that filing a Radar will lead to the bug being fixed at all.
The main issue with external Radar is not that developers aren’t notified about which release a fix will be in.
@pgor In my case, the phone is not plugged in a night, which is when this usually happens to me.
@mcelhearn Supposed to be 48, right? In any case, it often asks me after about 8 hours.
How many years has Touch ID been out, yet some mornings still wants my password to unlock for seemingly no reason? support.apple.com/en-us/HT204587
Apple Store genius messed up migration to my grandmother’s new iMac: contacts lost, Dock rearranged and apps removed, CrashPlan removed.
@leebennett Hope it’s not deleting your versions data. But maybe it doesn’t have privileges to do that.
@dafacto Did your cache update yet?
@fzwob Thanks for the suggestion, however sending to a Gmail account did not work for me. Maybe there are multiple problems.
@CocoaKevin That worked. Thanks!
@danielpunkass Right now, must forego all sandbox protections if your app needs one thing that doesn’t work in the sandbox.
@fzwob What are you sending from?
@CocoaKevin How did you get 7.2.1 to work?
Still seeing occasional blank filenames in Finder column view after renaming. Maybe fixed in 10.11.4?
@ameaijou Thanks. Will probably post tomorrow.
@dafacto It will do that if you tell it to Search All Fields from the search field menu.
@bwebster I think they renamed Agile to Planner and also moved it to the other side.
Mail searches are finding messages that don't match query and skipping ones that do. I guess it’s time to rebuild Spotlight again.
czechboy0 ⚠️ Xcode Server users! There's an issue with Xcode 7.2.1, so if you at all can, don't update your Xcode Server and keep it on 7.2/7.3!
Updated to Xcode 7.2.1, and now can't get Bots to work. Select Xcode.app in Server, stuck at "Preparing to configure" sheet.
Bug with some HTML messages in Mail (10.11.x) where unable to scroll down in preview pane until first switching to another app or window.
I read about how AppleScript support is back in Numbers, but it doesn't seem to actually work. mjtsai.com/blog/2016/01/2…
@nickheer Seems only fair to give them a few bug fix releases to see if things stabilize.
@ccgus I finally had to recently.
@jsnell Thanks. Meant to link to that, but I must have closed the Safari tab prematurely.
Nate Cook, Drew Crawford, and others make some good points in favor of keeping “NS” for Foundation types in Swift: mjtsai.com/blog/2016/01/1…
@rosyna Thanks for that link.
@rosyna Did anyone imply otherwise?
