Apple has changed. They just want to sell.

Slight clean up. Apple is screwing up.
2014 August 21 page started.
On 2014 August 4, I bought a new Mac Mini, because I wanted a small,
easy to take with me desktop computer. It has a 500GB SATA Disk. In a
box less than an inch and half high and about 7.5 inches square. There
is only a power cord and the HDMI cable to the monitor connected to it.
Internet, Keyboard, and Trackpad are wireless.
It came with: OS X Version 10.9.4 An Intel Core i5 Processor, 4 GB
1600 MHz DDR3. It's connected via HDMI to a VIZIO E280i-A1 Display: a
great 28 inch Led HDTV which also severs as a television.
My big complaints are:
- Maverics OS, and later won't play
music files. My MacAir with older OS
them fine. A friend has an identical MacAir, but his son who works
for Apple recently "Upgraded" it to Maverics. Now he can not play
.MID files on his MacAir!
- The older Safari browser you could "View the Source" of .htm files.
The new one won't! Fortunately Google Chrome will.
Chrome is a better browser, so I just don't use Safari.
When I want to modify one of my web pages, I "View the Source" and
Copy/Paste it into my editor, make the changes then FTP the new version
back, replacing the previous version. This way I can use any computer to
edit my web site.
- In Quartzsite, AZ I have the first Apple computer I bought: A
MacMini with OS X (Version 10.6.8). It will play CD's, the new one has
no CD slot! The older one in AZ is MUCH MUCH faster than the new one,
which has a faster processor! I have them both in AZ now, using the same
In Quartzsite there is one local FM station, and in daytime no AM
On the old MacMini using iTunes for News/Radio I listen to major
radio stations in USA and Canada. That's how I keep up with what is
going on in the world. New iTunes, that comes with Maverics, only
tries to sell Apple Victims there Aps. I tried for over a half hour
to get any radio stations, and gave up. The older Mac Mini I have in
Quartzsite still lets me listen to radio. I'll never update iTunes
or upgrade the OS.
- In San Jose I have an iMac. Unfortunately, I had updated it to
Maverics, so it will not play .MID files. I came to Quartzsite; and my
old Mac mini will still play them and let me listen to the radio
stations. I will never update that computer; and as far as I'm
concerned: Apple can go to hell.
- I also have a 2nd version iPad, which I hate. The only thing I
use it far is to play "Solitiare" after I go to bed until I get sleepy.
Unfortunaely, when I got a message that if I connected to the internet
it would update the time. (Which was about 7 minutes off.) I turned on
the WiFi, and it did correct the time; but now everytime I turn it on it
harasses me to connect to iCloud, twice! I have never used iCloud and
never will! But, I can't get the damn thing to stop doing
Apple doen't have a good replacement for Steve Jobs.
