Thanks a lot Apple, you incompetent pieces of shit. Gone are the Steve Jobs days of quality and consistency, these days it seems not only have Apple stopped innovating, they can not even seem to release a software update without breaking things.
First the messed up launch of iOS 8 and the number of issues people experienced there, now the latest and supposedly greatest version of OS X comically named Yosemite is experiencing more issues than an actress in a rehab clinic.
The issue for me appears to be Wifi (Googling seems to yield a lot of results). At first I thought it was my crappy home network, then I thought it was my crappy work network. It turns out I was blaming the wrong culprit, the issue is I updated to Yosemite and it seems to have some kind of bug with wireless connections.
My wireless connection ranges from dropping out completely to slowing down to a crawl and randomly dropping TCP/UDP packets whenever it pleases like a friend who has been sleeping on your couch for 2 months and has made your seat cushions smell like Cheetos and seafood. Sometimes it works for a good while, other times it seems to forget wireless networks that other people around me not on Mavericks seem to have no trouble staying connected to.
Some of the fixes range from forgetting all of your discovered wireless networks, disabling bluetooth, setting IP6 to “link local only” and reinstalling Yosemite. None of the above aforementioned fixes worked for me, which leads me to believe Apple are so arrogant that they do not test anything they put out any more.
I am using a late 2014 model MacBook Pro and I expected better than this… Not that age should matter, I think it definitely highlights Apple have released not even beta quality software.
Try googling iOS 8 wi-fi problems. Same issue there. It appears to be problems with only some chipsets. My guess is that they are using the iOS driver in OS/X. Pretending this isn’t there will not make it go away.
All of the “fixes” are garbage. The only real fix is for Apple to deliver a working wi-fi driver.
What the “fixes” have in common is re-starting wi-fi. It isn’t a fix, it will fail again later.
I completely and totally agree with you. I used to love Apple. Steve Jobs can never come back, like he did in 1997 and take over from that idiot Pepsico CEO. I used to love Apple products, but I guess that’s it then.
Not only Is the quality of Apples products getting much worse, they also seem to pay no attention to the severe security issues reported by several specialists and the public at large.
Several severe security bugs have been reported by a lot of pepole, and though Apple has had months, even years to sed out patches, they simply ignore them.
I own an Imac, a Mac Mini, two Ipads and an Apple TV. ALL of them are giving me problems in one way or another. what Apple dont seem to understand is that we dont want another Microsoft where the custumers act as a form of testlab because they dont have the time or will to test their products before release. The “It simply works” slogan that Apple uses is simply not true anymore.
it’s funny how we can see more and more that the greed of big companies seem to have no bounderies. This combined with suits sitting at the top, deciding over things they have no fucking clue at all is leading to this situation.
