Are you kidding me?

April 28, 2010

I recently tried to send a .pages document to a friend via the web interface for MobileMe. I soon discovered, however, that in order to send this document I had to compress it first.

This is unreal.

In actual fact, my friend happens to use a Mac and a PC, so I was trying to attach the same document in both .pages and .doc format. The .doc one went first and it was only when I tried to upload the .pages file that I got the notice that it was not possible.
How this debilitating flaw in the MobileMe platform was allowed to stay in the system is beyond my comprehension.

I use a Mac because it means that I have to spend less time dealing with my computer so that I can spend more time doing actual work. This speed bump in my workflow is totally unacceptable, and I hope Apple sorts it out soon.
