In reference to this thread; http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/os...oto-events-missing-10-10-3-a.html#post1652991
I am a little surprised that Photos does not seem to be functioning as I expected but I am unsure if it is just my expectations or lack of knowledge as I only ever used iPhoto as a storage device for the photos I take on my phone. I don't use a lot of editing features and mostly only used it as a storage system, locating my photos by using the All Photos view to locate the ones I want by working backwards. I do miss the dated blocks which could be easily renamed as events so when this OP said that downloads were not being listed as events I tried this process with some new photos and found that to be true. I then went to eject my iPhone 5s and noticed there was no eject button, so I opened a Finder window and was surprised to find it was not listed under Devices so I opened iTunes and after a short sync ejected it from there.
For a long time I and others on this forum not to mention industry opinion in general have constantly told us to eject devices and media before disconnection and now I see a situation which would seem to encourage people to do just the opposite.
Is this just me or others?:\

In reference to the 'other' thread, when I first opened Photos and chose the Cloud for my storage, taking it too 200GB, I had photos going back too 2009 and they were in ascending order. Because I'm not at home, and can't check on it, I'm not sure if within the Year if it's broken up in ascending order or not.
It would be pretty silly if they don't have some sort of sorting function.

Can you use kb shortcut ⌘J which will bring up a window to sort? As you can in Finder?

As to the device with no ejection icon, I haven't had my iPhone come in under Devices in Finder for...... Wow quite a long time. I can't tell without looking at Photos what tondo until get home.

Thanks TM I only looked under devices in case this was a new thing but alas no. I did read a post from Mac Rumors stating, "iPhones and other iOS devices do not have to be ejected. They are different from iPods and other USB drives." so why does iTunes have one? Maybe iTunes become Music and App Store replace iTunes' application and account management tools? It seems as though Apple is moving more and more in the direction of making iOS and OSX apps the same or is it just me?:Evil:
