"It just works!"
...except when it doesn't, in which case you're fucked and can only reboot and pray.
@deadlyRants nope, it won't work whatever you try with this configuration.
Her mac is just too old, there's a bunch of stuff that doesn't work with her osx version, and she can't have a newer version than 10.6.8 on her current mac
She doesn't want to buy a new one just yet so I told her we could try Linux.
So I'll install it on a fresh disk for her to try out someday, I hope she's gonna be able to work with it
Tored4754yI remember trying to send data from my friends iPhone to a MacBook. We had no internet, and it was impossible to do via a cable :/
@runfrodorun still, why just cut off the compatibility if it could still work? I mean, for a giant like Apple, they could, but they would never do such a thing
Also I read on another rant that they now subtract basic features calling it "innovation"
@aile11 *cough* Like headphone jacks? *cough*
@BlueNutterfly yyyyuup :D
@runfrodorun I maybe didn't say enough, what I meant was how they could mess it up so you can't even move your pictures over, because on other OS' it apparently emulates a camera to let them see the pictures. Just saying they could've done at least something like that.
Now I'm still in my first year, and I didn't program anything great yet, but I do understand how tedious and time consuming porting is, I know of enough examples, I just meant Apple as a giant company could've maybe done a little bit better, just saying, the only indication of an error message was basically saying it doesn't work, which never helps anyone.
I think I wanted to get a point across, but I lost it...
@runfrodorun well, as far as I can see the iPhone emulates a camera on non-appearance computers and does something else for macs wich apparently isn't supported on her mac anymore
@runfrodorun well, I'll introduce her to Linux sometime when we have time
If she doesn't like it she'll have to buy a new laptop
