I was wondering how long it would take before people would start trashing Apple’s exciting technological announcements at the WWDC 2012.
Although it appears that everyone is drooling over the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, the iOS 6 upgrade, scheduled for release in October 2012, didn’t fare quite so well.
Developers were given the opportunity to download the BETA release of iOS 6 and, since then, the complaints have been pouring in. The mapping isn’t perfect, Siri isn’t working as advertised, blah, blah, blah! Just cry me a river, already!
It’s in BETA people. Meaning – not ready for prime time. If it were, everyone would be able to download iOS 6.
Apple just can’t win, can it? Do you really think they are sloppy enough to push an inferior product or upgrade? Yes, it’s not going to be perfect, but, last time I checked neither are you.
Technological advances improve over time, trial and error. It’s the nature of the beast. It learns as we learn, especially when it comes to something as mind-blowing as Siri. It matures as we do, the technological brain becoming more refined and succinct with each passing day, month and year.
I honestly cannot take the whining anymore. If you can do better, then start your own company. Prove to all that you are better and wiser than the people at Apple Inc. Then maybe, just maybe, I will take you seriously. Until then – talk is cheap, cheap, cheap!
