    Limitations on software
    I do not understand Apple's reasoning for limiting many of their programs. It seems that every new version of something loses a key thing.

    can not publish group calendars to icloud.

    Or the fact that keynote cannot (and has never) allowed a movement on click. In other words, remove an object on a slide when that object is clicked.

    Or Keynote will not change the color of a used hyperlink.

    If you want to avoid change in the "Apple World"...here are the three things to do:

    1. Do not upgrade your computer.
    2. Do not upgrade your application software.
    3. Do not upgrade the OS.

    If you do these three things...you will be guaranteed a change-free Apple experience.

    Things need to be changed; they need to be updated. But give options. Don't take away the things that people like and use.

    I don't understand why Apple won't give the iphone iOS a customization option that is on the computer (that way it takes up no room on the phone's hard drive).

    This is what Apple does...they change things...and they update things.

    Are you saying that you would like a 100, 200, or 500 item checklist each time you do an upgrade/update to something. And then you check off what you want changed...and don't check the items you don't want changed??

    Not going to happen.

    Upgrades & updates are not a "pick & choose" sort of thing. You get what you get. Some changes are liked & some changes aren't.

    Here's what I would recommend. Don't be "first adopter" of OS or application updates/upgrades. When something new is released...do lots & lots of homework. Read reviews and see what other folks are saying on internet forums.

    Then you can decide if an update/upgrade is for you. If the changes are too extreme in some areas...then don't upgrade.

    Am I always 100% happy with all changes in an update/upgrade...of course not. That's progress. That's change.

    Some folks say they want change...but deep down...those same folks REALLY don't want change. Because when they get change...all they want to do is complain about it!

    A jailbroken iphone can be customized. So the ability to revert, or pick and choose more options are there, embedded deep in the software, where the less-than computer savvy are not allowed to look.
