4.2 Gigabytes Later and There are Still Issues

4.2 Gigabytes Later and There are Still Issues
October 14, 2011 blurb

I think it’s time to get very IT Manager up in this piece. After I have downloaded the upgrades to get iOS 5 (and iCloud) working I discover that iTunes is downloading the iPhone version of the software AGAIN on a product launch day. DUMB.

Here’s the amount of data for each upgrade:

Lion 10.7.2: 768.8 MB
Lion Recovery Update: 431.9 MB
Both of the following are needed to get Photo Stream working in iCloud:
iPhoto: 376.3MB & Aperture: 667.7 MB

iOS 5 iPad: 668.8 MB
iOS 5: iPhone: 774.4 MB

With the new Mac OS (10.7.2), I’m not even sure how the fuck I’m supposed to push out Lion to the other machines in the office. Turning them off and on again doesn’t seem to work:

Yeah. I loved Steve Jobs and all, but this is ridiculous.
