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.
