The big news this past week is that Facebook is rebranding itself as Meta and Zuckerberg is convinced the next big arena is going to be the Metaverse, an online virtual world aka Ready Player One. I don’t doubt that VR is going to be big, but in most scifi, virtual worlds are an escape from a dystopian world. What does Zuckerberg know? And an even bigger question, where was Second Life in 2020?
When your support staff isn’t very supportive
I stopped using Dropbox when they started to limit the number of clients on a free account. Combine that with an insane pricing schedule means I’m not going to use it. Apparently, the company didn’t collapse after I quit, but that doesn’t mean it got better.
A customer asked in the Dropbox support forums asked when a Mac M1 native client was going to be released. This person was told by Dropbox support that it wasn’t in the works, and people would need to vote to show that M1 support was important. Not supporting a pretty important platform isn’t the best way to run a company, and Dropbox has now announced that the client is coming in 2022.
Nothing like being a year late to the party.
