I used to be a die-hard Mac user. I owned Macs in the late eighties, and reluctantly moved to Windows.
But every time I have to deal with an Apple device, I wonder why things are so complicated, dorky in fact. The menu options are invariably labeled in ways that don’t resemble the action we want to take.
I tried to help a friend the other day transfer a video to an external drive, and oh the run-around his iPad gave us. No simple drag-and-drop worked – this from a company that practically invented drag-and-drop. We finally exported the file to Dropbox, logged into another PC (a Windows model), and downloaded the video to a thumb drive that was instantly recognizable on the computer.
Sitting beside each other, the iPad and the old Windows laptop looked like a Tesla next to a Toyota Tercel. But the latter got the job done.
I don’t use iPhones, and never owned a Mac since 1995. I’m happy with my plebeian tablet and non-IOS phone.
