Using e-mails on iPhone is dangerous

Last week I spent an hour or so by properly setting up all my e-mail accounts on iPhone, storing all my passwords in 1Password app a get them sync. All my accounts are IMAP so I was thinking I will get perfect sync between them and I will be able to use them both on my MacBook Pro as well as on my iPhone.

What a stupid cunt I was, relying on Apple’s solution!

Couple of minutes ago I have got an e-mail from my client with some comments to a project I am working on for him. I responded him using Mail on iPhone. First, Mail application asked me for password. WTF? It’s been stored in settings and worked. Anyway, I copied it from 1Password and entered again. Ok, e-mail sent.

Much more ugly surprise was that even after sending e-mail, my thread remained unchanged. My response did not show up there. It did in some other “Sent” folder (as the only message there) but not in my original conversation thread. Not on iPhone, not on my MacBook Pro. Maybe when my customer replies on my e-mail and he includes the original one, I will be able to track our conversation. But for now the track gets lost.

With Apple’s e-mail solution you can’t keep the history of your conversations.

How the brand new Airport Time Capsule installation went. I always thought that even Apple makes shit hardware at least it works together. But apparently not.

Next time you will try to take a photo with your iPhone 4S, ask your friends not to disturb you with calls, or turn on the Flight mode. Or do not answer the call! Otherwise you will get this hell of a screen after you finish.
But because we know this is Apple, the golden rule is still valid here:
Restart will help!

Apple can’t even code for it’s own system!

My selected color scheme (appearance) in Mac OS X is Graphite so all my controls throughout the system and applications are grey-coloured. Well, they should be. There is this iPhoto application, developed by useless Apple developers which can’t even use their system’s color scheme settings. The focused text area control element should have grey border around, not blue!

I know, it’s nothing important, but does not it tell about Apple developer’s skills more than we would wish? If they can’t use these simple system settings properly, what rubbish has to be the rest of the code? Unbelievable.

Process isolation according Apple

If one tab stops responding, you have to reload all of them. Got it? Apple’s implementation of the process isolation is not rubish, it is actually none at all!

Because sending photos from iPhoto does not work.

I have got this message while trying to send photos directly from iPhoto (via Share feature).

I have tried that with three different e-mail servers, no change. So I exported the photos as files, create new e-mail via Mail.app, put them inside and sent. With no trouble, using the same e-mail address I have been trying to use with iPhoto.

Windows users have not even a tiny clue how lucky they are!

Want to use video in iMovie? Are you fucking crazy?

Several days ago I have imported couple of pictures and videos I shot with my iPhone on my holiday. Today I decided to make a nice movie using iMovie. I opened the iMovie and wanted to import pictures and videos from the appropriate iPhoto event. However, iMovie only imports pictures. So apparent, who would need video in iMovie?

Are you also that stupid that you actually try to use Apple software to do stuff?

…and the album I have added in iPhone playlist in iTunes yesterday is still not synced! All the time I was at home, inside my Wi-Fi coverage, even with iPhone connected to computer via USB cable. Apple?
