This FaceTime bug is bad. Really bad. Especially for a company that is pitching itself as the most privacy-centric in the industry. You know what’s worse? Coming out and saying that you’ll have a fix “later in the week.” Yikes! Way, way too long.

@cleverdevil this app was the main event at WWDC. Tim Cook was in the demo. Just terrible.

@simonwoods brutal. I understand that bugs happen, even with a ton of QA, but the blasé response is baffling. If I were Apple, I’d send a push notification to all FaceTime users with a link to a kbase article covering the bug and instructions on how to temporarily disable FaceTime.

@cleverdevil @simonwoods Only way they are getting a pass on this is if they release a fix within a day and push it to all affected devices. If not, they better just force users to disable it or disable the affected feature somehow on server side. This is terrible.

@cleverdevil @simonwoods and of course they have already done the later. Phew!

@amit @cleverdevil One of the problems with Apple's growth is that more people than ever are aware of just how much money they have, and then make the over-simplified assumption this means there should be no problems. However, much of their apparent neglect of the Mac and bafflingly bad PR are more than avoidable so I still think they could be doing much better.
