I must admit, I am a “Steve Jobs keynote” junkie. I am not very proud of it, I am no Apple fan at all, I never owned anything apple in my life, and still, I love watching his keynotes, like few things else.
So I am just trying to watch this latest Steve Jobs keynote, but QuickTime is the crappiest piece of software I encountered in the last few years. I will dare to say it, its even worse than Internet Explorer 5.
When I paused it, I was unable to restart it, So I had to start again from the beginning, But there is no way to move the timeline at all! So I wasn’t able to forward to the point I was before I paused, and neither was I able to replay a misunderstood sentence.
I tried different machines, different browsers, including Apple’s own Safari, I even reinstalled QuickTime, but to no avail.
My only option now is to re watch again from the beginning, which I am not going to do. a quick Google search revealed that its not an isolated incident, Its the rule rather than the exception.
With all their awesomeness, which admittedly, sometimes borders with perfection, stuff like this shows you that they have their fair share of flaws.
