 #UX
 
Apple iTunes Wrong On ALL Counts. Here is yet another example of the falling quality and unreliability of Apple software. https://www.facebook.com/SorryWrongNumbers/posts/778702392222879 iTunes has become a #UX user experience nightmare, but even the math is plain wrong. Stupid iTunes says it needs merely 1 MB on my iPad 3 but  does not enough space because “only” 7.44 GB ( =7,444 MB! ) is available, whereas in reality, as you can see at the bottom of the picture, the iPad actually has 20.59GB ( =20,590 MB! ) available. I have been an Apple and Mac user since the start, and also the iPhone and iPad, but have seen this decline and increasing bugginess over the last several years. And, no, it is not Tim Cook’s fault. Many of the issues I have reported and discussed on Apple’s own discussion boards are from when Steve Jobs, whom I consider a true visionary though not so wonderful a human being, was still alive.

Perfection PerfectSun(set) - IMRAN™

I am so blessed to have loved seeing sunsets over the water all through my life. But there is just something special about the sunsets over Florida that I have not experienced in other places. This stunningly layered sunset over my blessed home in Apollo Beach was a marvel of textures and layers and shades I could not get enough of. 

This is an absolutely unedited (straight out of camera) SOOC photo from mhy nearly eight years old Nikon D300, just framed in Photoshop and published from iPhoto.

Snow (Sky) Fall. Snow is best on a lazy weekend when one does not have to go anywhere. As a matter of fact I cancelled my Saturday morning Florida flight despite knowing it would snow Saturday evening into Sunday. I didn’t stay back to see the snow, which, believe me, even native New Yorkers are already sick of, but to try to catch up so many of my own life projects kept pending by work. Stay safe, warm and dry; and always keep me in your prayers, my friends. Thank you.

I love that this is 24 hours so even when I fly in from NY late at night I can go straight there and pick up milk (only to realize I have frozen containers at home already :) ), cereal, vitamins, even Campbell's Chili, and sundry items from batteries to cables to WD40. Always very helpful staff.

Clean, mostly well stocked and mostly very helpful staff. Wish it was 24 hours like a few others. Sometimes their specials are truly great prices. Other times the convenience factor makes up for the prices.

My then girlfriend got me a Groupon for this place. By the time I actually got to use the Groupon (because of poor responsiveness) she and I had actually split up, got back together, and split up again! When I finally did get a massage the young lady Kayla who did my massage was so awesome I became a regular because of her. Then she left. I did not make it to my Apollo Beach place for a month and in my early January trip I found the place had closed down. O, Kayla, Kayla, wherefore art thou, Kayla? :-) Imran

I gave this place two tries over a one year period with two separate lovely lady friends. And both times I was underwhelmed by the service, disappointed by the quality, annoyed by the relatively high prices for mediocre sushi and swore never to come back. I am now sticking to that decision. Imran
