Buying without trying

In Uncategorized on March 24, 2016 by mstevensrev

Yesterday I bought a new email client for my Mac from the App Store. I went through my normal buying process of reading reviews and making sure it met my requirements, at least the best I could from product descriptions and reviews. Then after getting it installed I found out that it does not have a calendar feature ???? In my research  was interested in how it incorporated shared calendar data with Exchange (Office 365). I’m doing all of this while on the road with limited attention and I just acted under the assumption that this was a feature in the product from what I read. evil-apple

Now I’ve spent $10 for a product that isn’t anywhere close to what I had desired. I’ll commit some more time to see if perhaps I’m missing something, but I’m pretty sure I just made a ‘donation’ to Apple. Their walled garden (and crappy product releases) really have tarnished the brand for me that at one time I nearly worshipped.

If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse.
