This phone is a huge fail, both software- and hardware-wise. This proves that Mountain Lion (another disaster) was not an accident and it will cost Apple dearly. I agree that iPhone 5 should be recalled and probably completely redesigned.

I so hate the differences between the Mac keyboard and the standard PC keyboard. After I work continously on one, I keep doing things wrong on the other. Yesterday I was in "worked on Mac, keep missing on PC", and today I keep missing stuff on both, stuff like ', /, [] {}, \ etc., not to mention y/z rotation on the Mac keyboard compared to PC. And not to mention cmd/alt/ctrl confusion and movement through text.

Apple should've polished those maps for at least one more year before releasing it to the general public. I don't know what they were thinking but this was a huge blunder.

Seems Google is having some problems too: http://dnevnik.hr/vijesti/zanimljivosti/otok-krk-po-googleu-cas-pod-morem-cas-nije.html
And I also saw few errors at Hvar, but they fixed it a few days ago(The small island in front of Hvar had a wrong name, and the label from another one was misplaced on the Hvar town itself). But anyhow globally I guess it isn't a huge deal considering we are not some important country... :-/
However Google street view for Croatia is finally here! Looks super cool :)

Fortunately I learned the lesson on the Mountain Lion so I didn't upgrade to iOS6. This unreliable stuff is so Linux. :) Ubuntu is always like that - when you dist-upgrade you never know what your system is going to be like. Sometimes it works fine, most of the time something breaks and you fix it, and recently everything just goes to hell and doesn't work properly at all. Mountain Lion wasn't that bad but half of my stuff didn't work anymore and some important things still don't. I don't call that upgrade, I call that downgrade.

I also upgraded from Snow Leopard to Lion. Because I had to(They stopped delivering new XCode versions for it). Man, the gestures on Lion are so fucked up. I got used to it, to some degree, but even today I still sometimes swipe with four fingers up just to figure out I had to swipe down.. On Leopard you would swipe up to show desktop. I though that was the most natural thing to do. Now you have to use FIVE fingers in an explode-like manner to show the desktop and then you have no finger left to do a drag and drop with some file from the desktop to some window! Stupid.... 
- 2012-09-26T21:19:57+0000
Yeah, the four-finger-pinch-out to get the desktop is so incredibly bad and unreliable I started using Fn-F11 instead, it's actually less frustrating. When I count the positive sides, the full screeen window icon is good. Everything else is a major mess. I liked the four-fingers-up swipe for getting the desktop, it was very natural and reliable, and losing it is bad. Also, losing the ability to wake the machine from sleep with a touchpad swipe was cool, and now it's gone. Someone in Apple should get fired.
- 2012-09-26T21:26:52+0000
Hah, I didn't notice that with sleep... But check this, you say full screen option is good, it is, but :) did you try it on a dual monitor setup?  The other monitor gets grayed out! There is absolutely nothing on it, beside that gray pattern background. In rare applications, which have floating utility windows, you can drag them there but otherwise you get a useless monitor!

Fortunately I only use it on my laptop or I'd go insane by now. I don't know what they are thinking, seriously. It's like their only quality control was Steve and he died.

....and you are correct it's a four finger pinch out(for the desktop) not five like I said .. but since I can't make this gesture without my thumb, its the same as using five fingers. I can't drag the icons using my little finger :D
- 2012-09-26T21:33:44+0000
I could never get tired of throwing rocks at the person who thought this gesture was a good idea.

I noticed you made that observation about Steve Jobs. But technically he was still alive and leading the company at the time they released Lion, which had all the problems you found out in Mountain Lion. So I seriously don't know what the F.... happened. Sometimes I wonder do they even test this before releasing ?!.. I mean don't Apple developers use the same multi monitor setup (its so common within developers) I could not release the software that was nerving me for my own use...
- 2012-09-26T21:44:09+0000 - Updated: 2012-09-26T21:44:22+0000
Honestly, I don't think he did much at that time. Unfortunately I'm not joking when I say he was their only QC. He had his fingers in QC so deeply they completely relied on him to catch things that are just wrong, and now they keep releasing stuff that looks like not even the developers actually tried them out.
- 2012-09-26T21:56:34+0000
You're probably right. I always liked Steve Jobs he was truly enthusiastic about the products they made. When you watch the newer keynotes they look like actors trying to imitate him... A friend used to tell me a story about Steve and a design process they had in Apple for an app for burning CDs/DVDs... Steve told the designers/developers that they should bring him their design ideas. So they did.. There where all kinds of buttons and windows and options... Then he told them thats all bullshit, got to a drawing board, draw a square and one button inside: "Burn" - This is how you are going to make it, he told them ... :D
- 2012-09-26T21:59:10+0000
I can imagine. Some of the recent things... that full screen icon, for instance. It just screams "dumbass". It's ugly, it's out of place, he never would've done it like that. Why not a double tap on top of the window?? Why? They are idiots.
- 2012-09-26T22:06:45+0000
yup! agree.. However they done some things right... i.e. resizing windows is now possible on any corner/border of the window

I usually don't like videos of that sort too much, cause its usually just android fanboys bashing and crying cause they are not the popular ones but this one is quite hilarious :D. Considering all the "orgasming" from Ive on the latest videos I think they deserve it ;)
- 2012-09-26T22:20:17+0000
Resizing on any corner or border... Windows have it since, like, forever. Even Linux has it for some ten years. Geez... some things in OS X are genuinely on the wooden comb level. I've been trying win7 on my desktop machine lately and the window manager is just perfect. OK, some things aren't really, like the multi monitor support which needs additional 3rd party tools to get proper functionality but the rest works great. I just can't get any work done without unix shell so I use a virtual linux on the second monitor. It's almost as good as having a native unix machine.
- 2012-09-26T22:27:11+0000
Damn, you're right! Resizing on any corner on Windows really does work (I had to go try it out the PC connected to my TV :) ) I must have fallen under the influence of Apple propaganda! Yup I'm too running a centos distro in wmplayer. However I started thinking about completely removing windows and stick just to linux and mac os x...
- 2012-09-26T22:33:21+0000
Well, I was on linux-only diet for five years so it certainly can be done, but you really need to get your hands into the system's guts every now and then.

Now <b>this</b> is what I was talking about.

Steve Jobs died and they returned to their normal human condition of being clumsy, prone to errors and too pleased with themselves. First it was Mountain Lion, now this PoS. Fortunately, after being burnt by Mountain Lion, I refused to "upgrade".

It is quite possible that Jesus was married and also that he was quite a different person from his portrayal in the Gospels, however this fragment is insufficient evidence to draw conclusions. For all that we know, there were several sects with different narratives about Jesus before emperor Constantine established "orthodoxy" by simply destroying the branches that conflicted with the one that was proclaimed true on the first council in Nicaea. One such heterodox branch are the gnostics whose Nag Hamadi library offers narrative similar to this fragment. Basically, there is more evidence to support that he was married and that Mary of Magdala was his "most beloved disciple", later renamed to "John".

This "insult to Mohammed" thing is getting increasingly Monthy-Python-esque.
"Oh wait, there are people who are not Muslims; this is a huge insult to Mohammed as they don't think he's a prophet. Let's kill them all for blasphemy!"
