This FaceTime bug is bad. Really bad. Especially for a company that is pitching itself as the most privacy-centric in the industry. You know what’s worse? Coming out and saying that you’ll have a fix “later in the week.” Yikes! Way, way too long.
Cosigned. To quote something I said in an IRC channel earlier: “But generally it's a big screw up by Apple and pretty disappointing.”
It’s surprising how long it took to turn up in the wild, though. Makes me wonder whether it’s a trickier bug than we think.
@simonwoods brutal. I understand that bugs happen, even with a ton of QA, but the blasé response is baffling. If I were Apple, I’d send a push notification to all FaceTime users with a link to a kbase article covering the bug and instructions on how to temporarily disable FaceTime.
@amit @cleverdevil One of the problems with Apple's growth is that more people than ever are aware of just how much money they have, and then make the over-simplified assumption this means there should be no problems. However, much of their apparent neglect of the Mac and bafflingly bad PR are more than avoidable so I still think they could be doing much better.
