Mac Developer: Opinion: Google’s new Photos may just have won my library away from Apple | 9to5Mac
Opinion: Google’s new Photos may just have won my library away from Apple | 9to5Mac
My relationship with Apple’s hardware is simple: I’m happily locked in, and not changing platforms any time soon. But my relationship with Apple’s software is complex: I want to love it, but every time Apple decides to “throw everything away” and “start over” with an app, it’s disruptive — and for many users, unnecessary.
When you treat software like furniture or jewelry. Imagine getting up in the morning to go to work and having to learn how to drive a car all over again. I've got other things to do. It's not just Apple. Google just messed up their contacts webapp. It was my favorite and now I can't stand it. Unfortunately, because it's tightly integrated with gmail and hangouts and voice, I'm more or less forced to use it.
Once again, it's like the web programmers are in charge of everything. Which is why dropbox doesn't work from a CoreDuo MacBook running 10.6.8 and Chrome.
I think Steve Jobs famously said he hoped the internet would never lose it's "dial tone" HTML functionality. If you ask me, the dial tone is gone silent.
