Apple improves perfection

Written by Nick Farell


Or patches crap operating system, you decide
Jobs' Mob has released a patch for some of the problems that it denies that its new Lion operating system is suffering from.

Apple has a history of denying that its software has problems so its updates are an indication of what really went on when it released Lion. The main update fixes a problem that caused the system to hang when watching a video in Safari and audio to stop working when using HDMI or optical audio out.

Lion users moaned about flaky WiFi, and some had problems migrating their data to a new Mac running Lion. Apple claims both of these problems were fixed. Lion users complained that their main admin accounts were missing after upgrading to Lion, which has apparently been fixed.

For the 2011 MacBook Air, Apple has applied all the same updates, plus a fix for a problem that caused the Air to boot up when the MagSafe connector was attached and another related to flickering displays. The Mac mini also got a fix for a problem that caused the SD card slot to operate at reduced speeds.

The speed problems that users have been complaining about has not been specifically mentioned in the updates and so far there have been no reports that Apple machines are going faster.

We have to prove over and over again that Mac is essentially a PC with different OS and A BUG EATEN APPLE LOGO. It does not contains any FAIRY DUST invented by Steve Jobs. :D

You forgot to mention overpriced PC's with different OS.

Someone at Apple really needs to take note of how their 'deny every problem' strategy combined with their 'patent war with duff evidence' strategy is taking their reputation down the toilet.

As usual apple is having to apply patches for bug riddled ATI/AMD graphics. Through out the history of the modern mac the AMD/ATI cards are the ones with the most display issues by a large margin.

You know that Apple is to blame for the video bugs, not AMD? Apple makes the drivers and they kinda suck at it, in fact Apple sucks at everything. Still better than burnt nvidia gpus, that's for sure.

Wow, so many angry kids in this site.

Technically, it is your parent's fault that they do not make enough money to afford buying you an Apple product. So you should take it out on them, not a guy by the name of Steve Jobs who you have never ever met and yet keep referring to him as if you knew him.
