Wrong direction

... this is what I get EVERY TIME I have to hard reset my Macbook running OSX 10.8 after it refuses to wake up from sleep. There’s no way to make finder let go the items I am trying to drop. It’s completely irrelevant what you do, it just sits there and behaves as if you kept your mouse button/trackpad pressed down.

This happens with a 99% chance after every reboot since some funky moron took over power management in OSX or whatever causes this damn piece of software to not recover after a wake up event.

Excellent – since the only way to resurrect drag&drop is to send the Macbook to sleep, but hey, be very fast, if it stays in sleep for too long, it won’t recover, and I may hard reset it again, leaving you with a non functional drag&drop situation. Dumbheads.

Seriously, what’s wrong with this company, they are on their best way to become mediocre – at best. I’d say lousy is what I would rate everything they released software-wise during the last 24 months. Are all the good guys gone and some weirdo MBA conceptionalists without the smallest clue have taken over?

If so, good bye Apple, we had a really productive partnership over the last ten+ years. I really wanted to keep it that way, but I need tools that work, not toys that annoy me.
