  • Thursday 12 January 2006 : iPhoto Sucks Less
    Or maybe it doesn’t suck at all. It certainly doesn’t crash all the time any more:...
  • Thursday 29 December 2005 : iPhoto Sucks
    I am so sick of this. I’ve explored all the reasonable alternatives, and found none of them to be reasonable: I don’t think I’ve actually been able to quit iPhoto normally for a few months now. It manages to lock up before I’m done with it 100% of the time now....
  • Sunday 11 December 2005 : The Washington Post Website Sucks

  • Friday 03 June 2005 : How Not To Do It: Customer Service In An Age Of Fraud
    Apple’s .Mac service says they want me back, but they have a funny way of showing it. I like to consider that I’m a pretty savvy person, without being paranoid. I’ve been abused of a couple of times by sleazy online merchants, but I’ve never actually been ripped off, nor have I ever been the victim of ‘identity theft’. I...
  • Sunday 08 May 2005 : Another iPhoto Bug Fix
    About a month ago, I wrote that turning off iPhoto sharing had solved a lot of my iPhoto problems. It did: iPhoto had been rendered entirely unusable because it would freeze (with the spinning beachball, sometimes called the 'spinning pizza of death' or SPOD) shortly after launch. I might be able to select a photo before it would freeze,...
