Wow, it is 2024, and when you use the buggy "Apple Music.app" in macOS 14.5 "Sonoma" to copy music files to an iPhone, it shows a progress bar.

In the Finder.

IF the device window of that iPhone is open. In the Finder.

I mean, sure. This is the most obvious place, right? RIGHT?

Meanwhile, the buggy "Apple Music.app" shows a silly ugly little wedge only, which is impossible to read and has no context at all.

And that from a gigantic company that once dominated innovative and easy-to-user interfaces.

This? This is total crApp. Horrible user interface design.

Wenn diejenigen, die bei der CDU gegen eine Aufhebung des „Verbrennerverbots“ stimmen, kriminell sind, was ist dann erst die Spitzenkandidatin der CDU, die das angebliche Verbrennerverbot durchgesetzt hat?

Kleines Quizz: Wer hat diesen schönen Ausblick auf den Rhein in ?

@cdfinder@techhub.social avatar


Fast! Ein paar Schritte weiter im Park der Villa Hammerschmidt hat der Bundespräsident eine schöne Aussicht über den Rhein...

Also die hat eine Aktion gestartet und bittet um Abstimmung. Es geht um die Aufhebung des Verbrenner-Verbots. Bitte stimmt mit ab. Damit sich da die Zahlen ändern.

Ach ja macht Screenshots. Nicht dass sie die Umfrage zurücksetzen wenn ihnen das Ergebnis nicht passt.

Herrlich, die CDU hat ihren Webserver immer noch bei einem Hobby-Hoster-Laden laufen, der gerade zusammengebrochen ist.

Köstlich. Einmal mit Profis arbeiten.

We have just released yet another free Video Tutorial for you!

How does Apples work on a File Server or NAS?

Hint: It probably won't, so for better results, use NeoFinder...

Is broken for anyone else? My searches just lead to an empty page saying to try again.

Update: Yup, #5 trending hashtag right now, lots of people have this.

Yeah, that Media Info column in the #NeoFinder List View needed a lot more space, and now it's got it!

Among many other things, the Display Filter in for 8.6 can filter out all items from offline volumes for you, so you see only those files currently available on your Mac!

Ich korrigiere: "Es ist erneut in aller Dramatik fassbar geworden, welche Gewalt die Klimakrise hat, welche Zerstörung sie anrichten kann und wie sehr wir uns immer wieder auf solche Ereignisse vorbereiten müssen."

Es ist die Klimakrise. Benennt es bitte klar.

@cdfinder@techhub.social avatar


Wenn jetzt endlich mehr TATEN folgen würden in der Prävention.

Statt dessen weicht der Bundeskanzler das ohnehin zu lasche Klimaschutzgesetz noch weiter auf, und erlaubt es absoluten Nieten und Arbeitsverweigerern wie Wissing, sich nicht um CO2 zu kümmern.

Furchtbar. Zynisch.

So, if you have the Pro Video Codecs are installed on your Mac, the integrated video player in can play Sony MXF video files! Pretty cool!


You get these codecs when you use Final Cut Pro and other Appl apps...

The update to 14.5 "Sonoma" has been as unpleasant as expected.

After downloading many gigabytes, macOS got stuck for more than HALF AN HOUR, doing some undisclosed "Preparing".
This is just BS, I checked what happened, and a secret Apple tool named "UpdateBrainService" was slowly crunching away with a lousy 99% CPU. And that on one of the fastest Macs ever been built.

Really, , that is the best you can do?

And now, the Mac is crippled by dozens of "mdworker_shared" processes, because for EVERY SINGLE macOS update, as small as it is, Spotlight needs to reindex ALL DATA, slowing down macOS for many more hours.

Tim, you should be ashamed, really.

And now the real fun begins, because in the next days, we need to find out what NEW bugs Apple has added to macOS 14.5.


@cdfinder@techhub.social avatar


Das ist echt lange her, so Mac OS X 10.9 maximal.


@cdfinder@techhub.social avatar

And yes, the ugly and buggy "System Settings" in 14.5 still crash and hang all the time.

, where are the bugfixes?
This is such a disturbing

@cdfinder@techhub.social avatar


Das würde vor allem Apple mal Zeit geben, die vorhandenen Bugs zu beheben, oder wenigstens ein paar davon.

Statt dessen muß aus dumpfen Marketinggründen jedes Jahr eine Sammlung doller neuer Features präsentiert werden, die eigentlich keiner braucht.

Aber daß in die "punkt" Releases jetzt so viele neue Bugs eingebaut werden, ist neu für macOS 14, in den Vorjahren waren diese Releases einigermaßen stabil...

I totally love what the is able to see, such as this new and exciting image of the Horsehead Nebula, where you can see loads of galaxies.

Absolutely amazing!

The image from even contains a very detailled description, and metadata in the AVM format, which my NeoFinder for macOS software of course catalogs, displays, and allows you to search.

Yeah, we got lots of requests to add these three additional data fields to the already very versatile Icon View in #NeoFinder, so here they are:

EXIF Lens Name, Camera Name, and Camera Maker.

And yes, you can sort these, too.

There's people arguing that the Apple Crush! ad is "neat" and "fun".

It's literally showing the wanton destruction of things we love and make us human. Including shots that makes you identify with the things as a viewer.

I don't understand what's wrong with people. Do they not have emotions?

@cdfinder@techhub.social avatar


OMG, I just watched that ad, and it is so awful, really awful. Just plain trash.
But I am not surprised that Apple chose it.

I think that in the blaze of counting the trillions $$$, Apple really forgot what the Mac and then iOS users once really loved about the platform.

Hint: It wasn't this.

The Photo Contact Sheet in my NeoFinder software for macOS is a great way to generate a PDF document of your photo library, and the new version has more customizations than ever.
Check it out!

Really, macOS 14 is such a

And yeah, it is the latest version 5.1 of "SF Symbols.app", and of course, this message lies, as the app is actually NOT damaged, and can be launched with the "open" contextual menu command.

This is such a bad joke, really...
