When you use all Apple products for business, the mediocrity that creeps into Apple’s software, much of it running at the end of its evolutionary rope, is starting to affect the bottom-line of your performance.
Trying to figure out, with my ISP, why our website management console wasn’t loading for about one hour, appeared to be a malfunction in the off-the-shelf MacBook I am using. A restart of the whole computer resolved the issue instantly, which appeared to be a local abnormality with my computer only; everyone else on the network is fine. Why does a computer running an operating system older than many children still have such serious problems connecting to the internet?
Do you really want me to answer that? I have previously, in excruciating detail. And I just do not have the interest or time to keep highlighting the death by a thousand cuts, paused only by the entrapment of greater-fools, that plagues Apple.
Apple is rotating engineers around, losing the thread of excellence that makes each product as best as it could or should be. Too many products, too many versions, most on a dead-end street of suboptimization. Yep, you can see from the products a company makes where it goes awry, its history repeating itself. Just like the image of the recent install of the operating-system shows, Apple can no longer compute how much time is remaining. And neither can I when it comes to using Apple products.
I am getting tired of Apple’s lousy software quality, bad hardware quality, and dumb design putting a cramp on my style.
Georges is the Managing Director of The Venture Company.
Beginning in early 2001, Georges produced triple-digit million-dollar startups in Silicon Valley he sculpted from nothing. As an entrepreneur, management incubator, CEO, board member, offered the rite of passage to become a venture capitalist, Georges refused to be confined by underperforming subprime innovation arbitrage and instead, began to question the populism of an investment thesis waddling in collusion so fundamentally incompatible with the discovery of outliers.
His entrepreneurial quest for root-cause, as he describes in 1,268 articles on the blog, revealed the systems of policy, capital, and innovation determining the gameplay of humanity, have not evolved to escape the regurgitating suboptimizations of an aging past. More poignantly and importantly, Georges discovered human gameplay is held hostage by flat-world systems of expiring absolutism systemically denying the dynamic relativity of the round-world we actually live in.
So, Georges set out to develop a new operating system for humanity – for the first time – compatible with evolution, offering new opportunities to create more vibrant and regenerative societies. Georges currently helps policy-makers, asset-managers, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders chart a fundamentally new course, through custom advisory and masterclasses, guided by the discovery of nature’s first-principles, proven its worth over 13 billion years.
Georges is outspoken on the spectrum of his expertise and his viewpoints have been lavishly praised by people with a vested interest in the regenerative excellence of humanity. Georges is called upon by members of Congress, board members of large financial institutions, public pension funds, global economics organizations, private equity behemoths, venture capital firms worldwide, and entrepreneurs.
