Literally. The privacy database gets borked all the time, and then it’s not even possible to grant permissions.

The concept behind macOS privacy protections is not bad, but the implementation is atrocious.

Compare with Little Snitch, which does it right. Little Snitch starts in observation mode and doesn't immediately bombard users with alerts and forced choices. pic.twitter.com/k1KgMVOH52

In other words, the Mac malware problem is vastly overstated, macOS lockdown is security theater, and the solution is simple user education.https://t.co/6hxq7zytTk pic.twitter.com/FnzD6Kvzj8

I worked with a guy who was on the ID team during the iPhone/iPad era.

He would tell me stories like how he was bought a cot for his office and had paid pet sitters to go feed his pet when he couldn’t make it home.

He also insisted I should apply ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Example: class NSObject moved from CoreFoundation to libobjc in macOS 10.8. libobjc has $ld$hide symbols for old OS versions ("NSObject is here, but it used to be somewhere else"). CF has $ld$add symbols for old OS versions ("NSObject is elsewhere, but it used to be here").

The various $ld$ magic symbols are used heavily by Apple’s system frameworks to maintain backwards compatibility while moving symbols between frameworks. If you look at the various .tbd files in the Xcode SDKs you’ll see all sorts of shenanigans along these lines.

Why the hell did photoanalysisd decide to take up 100% of my CPU? I haven't even touched a photo or Photos in weeks.

It would be quite something if the mid-range Mac Pro, the XBox Series X and the PlayStation 5 all had the very same AMD APU. 🤔.. pricing would be $3000, $600 and $499 for the same machine, but the Mac won’t have a headphone jack, and the Xbox will only work with One Drive.

Individually, many proposals make sense. Together they are insanity to the point of endangering the future of C++.

And it’s been this way for well over a decade - it seems like absolutely nobody, even Microsoft, can hire and manage a team well enough to deliver decent *trackpad drivers* https://t.co/27biPZf2TN

Windows's automatic screen brightness adjustment based on ambient light is not as good as macOS's, whether on an iMac or on a high-end Windows laptop.

It's often too dim or too bright.

macOS does this perfectly.

More of the adware that permeates every corner of iOS. If you search for something in the Music app, it shows you an ad for Apple Music with no option to buy. Then if you go to the iTunes Store, it shows you... another ad for Apple Music. pic.twitter.com/9XvTOnk3uA

Dunno who needs to know this, but don't leave the Console app on macOS open as a matter of course. It can cause diagnosticd to use a ton of CPU and cause your fans to spin up.

Quitting Console solves the problem.https://t.co/Yk5nM38UW7

Hey #SwiftLang, how has GYB worked out? Why did the team opt against existing templating engines (jinga/Cog/Pump/etc)?

Would it be crazy to use GYB to generate C++ code?

When the only Apple laptop that got fixed with a decent keyboard is the one that sells in lowest numbers, one can argue that Apple hasn’t fixed it for the majority of its users.
