What are your most contrary MPU opinions?

Oh, do you mean OmniFocus subscription rumors?

I haven’t heard too much noise about the design of the Mac Pro case around here. I think that it already looks dated. In a couple of years it will look like a $16,000 relic of 2019.

I had heard rumours about Things…

Cloud storage doesn’t protect you against stupid user tricks and attacks like ransomware.

And yet, we’ve had two instances of it at work, though pre-Catalina. I

'm always astounded at how eagerly and hard users will work to help the bad guys, while being so reluctant to do (or avoid doing) anything that might keep their stuff safe. On the other hand, it keeps me in a job :laughing:

iCloud isn’t a backup. It faithfully replicates whatever you do to another location. File gets corrupted? It’s corrupted on iCloud. File gets deleted? It gets deleted on iCloud. A lesson I learned the hard way five years ago with Dropbox.

If you’re only using iCloud, you’re breaking the 3-2-1 rule of backups.

I am a big fan.

Fascinated by those interesting hemispheres. I would like to use a flat plate of them as a seat in my kayak. Drain water. Circulate air.

I also just like the look.

100% agree. If they hadn’t had the marketing and public relationships skills of Jean MacDonald (and a healthy podcast advertising budget) then they would have failed on the bare merits of the actual apps, which are just not good at all.

I don’t understand the love for Drafts. I find it clunky and unattractive. Having said that, I’ m a big fan of MPU and get a lot from it, though some of it does go over my head.

yeah, I couldn’t get it to index in Spotlight. I liked the app but once that happens, I uninstalled it, the developer was helpful but nothing I tried worked. Without spotlight indexing a notetaking app is no good to me.

In my country it’s facebook messanger and WhatsApp or Telegram are exceptions.

I don’t understand MPU’s infatuation with Reeder. Fiery Feeds is so much more powerful and “usable” with its user configured url scheme share options. I remember trying Reeder years ago and the “shares” were hardcoded and some of them were for apps that didn’t even exist anymore.
