The daily rant!

The daily rant is an article I'll update regularly if I feel I need to complain about something :-)
Each rant will be short, dated and to the point.

Gotta hand it to Apple, the Watch 4 is really a nice piece of kit - very fast and usefull. But how can a company that brands itself on design and productivity have neglected the new watch faces so badly? The infograph faces could be almost perfect, but oh no... Most watch complications - especially apple's built in - does not work on these faces. And then there the color nightmare - It looks like TERRIBLE - like something androidish anno 2013. Why not let us dial down the number of colors to one or two and "tidy" up bit?

I have to admit my Apple Watch (S2) is some of the best tech I have bought for years, but... I really really want the S4 with LTE for cycling/walking with no phone. So I ordered one in blind hope that someday TDC/Telmore would support it even though they are scared to death of supporting ESIM. They are not saying it, but my guess is its because they are afraid customers can change provider to easily with ESIM.

This is 2018 - Get on your horses TDC - You need to support ESIM, or customers will flee regardless.

Stop saying AI! I have had it with the word "AI" being used for just about any product, code, service or feature being made today. We are nowhere near having artificial intelligence in the software or computer industry. In fact, we have nothing that even resembles intelligence - what we have is machine learning on steoroids, algorithms developed in the 80's but now with compute power enough to actually produce something. Machine leaning is just gathering trends/similarities from millions of examples and nothing more  - trust me, there's nothing intelligent going on. 

So stop saying AI god dammit!

This is the end.., My only friend, the end.
Lyrics well choosen by The Doors and very present right now. It only remains to be seen if we are talking about my wallet or Nikon, the camera company. They have placed their bet on a mirrorless future with the release of the Z6/Z7, and upcoming reviews will determine who is facing the end. Right now early previews favors heavily towards my wallet being finished off....

Dammit Nikon - this whole “pre announcement of an announcement” deal with your new Mirrorless is killing me. Are you aware how much time I could have been shooting instead of discussing and arguing about completely unsubstatiated rumors and ideas?? Facts please, not this PR extravaganza🤬.

God Dam*** Apple. I have a heavily throttled iPhone 6 - something you did without telling me - but you will not exchange the battery (which you say causes the throtteling) because the phone has a defective headphone jack.
That has to be the worst customer service EVER! Those two things are not related at all, and I don't care about the headphone jack.
I hope you get screwed over by huge amounts of planned obsolescense law suits. You really have it coming!

Sometimes I just wish the internet wasn't there...  All the Black friday offers available in the US by manufacturers to prices that we Danes can only dream of, are.... Really really annoying!!!

The day Apple Pay arrived to Denmark... DO NOT USE IT - PERIOD!!
All it does is undermine the "Dankort" because it only works with international creditcards that has exorbitant transaction fee's - payed by the store, and later on all of us because the price of goods then needs to go up.
@Apple: If you want us to use Apple Pay, do it right, lets use the "Dankort" and accept you can't have these massive fee's for transactions.

Pigeons, why the H*** did evolution invent those? One car completely craped over by these flying rats for no good reason! If only I had a permit from the city, my pelletgun and I would seek a horrible revenge

“Why Adobe, Why? With new lightroom versions now only available on subscription my Adobe days are over. Why anyone would use cataloging (archive) software on subscription beats me. You are commited 100% to Adobe and the price they ask - for life - if you want to do anything more than read from your library. So LR6 will be my last Adobe program - time to look elsewhere”

Dammit Apple, I know you want to sell Apple Music subscriptions but this is going too far. As an Apple watch owner with my own music collection, I have to install the worst bloatware ever (iTunes) and sync - via cable, yes you read it correct, cable - music to my phone to get it onto my watch. For god sake, it's not 1998 any more!

Will someone inform Adobe that Lightroom is border line unusable on 4K monitors? They do not seem to get the message from the million posts online. It doesn't cache anything when using 4K so EVERY image change in all modules causes a full rerender... takes forever. The slowest software ever!

Okay - Need a new phone! The 6 plus was just plain under powered from the get-go, and iOS 10/11 did me NO favors. How slow can a phone get? This phone is the black sheep, the iPad 3 of iPhones. Just ordered an 8 plus - I do not need to gamble with FaceID taking forever to unlock my phone.

Great - iOS 11 made my iPhone 6 plus the slowest phone on the planet. c'mon Apple, you elected to equip it with only 1Gb RAM when 3Gb was standard with Android. Now you need to show you can make an OS run acceptably with this!
