I'm curious about what the "supplier fraud" situation was that buried them.

Very sad.

Looks like the last thing that I bought through Kagi was the Visual Hub Updater in 2011. And nothing much before that for a long while.

I most recently bought SoftRAID from Kagi (because Mac OS 10.11.x removes GUI management of RAID volumes).

There is another piece of software quite specific to my industry that we've bought from Kagi. We have probably ten licenses of it. I haven't yet e-mailed support to see if it's going to complicate moving the software to other machines.

I checked various email accounts and it looks like I've purchased licenses for various Garage Sale versions and a license for some video mode config utility. Last purchase was 5 or 6 years ago.

Rather obnoxious of them. I always hated Kagi because it put some serious crap in your system, and now it has screwed over the little guy.

Just read the first half dozen pages of this thread on a whm.

Amusing to read the discussions about Apple Movie rentals vs Netflix (this is circa 1997) and how most people thought Netflix wasn't going to be a big player...

Apple blew it big time.

Maybe. A large part of Netflix's success is being hardware agnostic. Remember, it spun off Roku rather than appear to be competing with any hardware partners, and preserve its ubiquity.

I don't think they were ever part of Netflix.

Sorry, I meant circa 2007. Not 1997!

Ahh. There was a division of Netflix that had developed its own hardware that was spun off and sold *to* Roku. Roku itself existed for several years before that and had other products already released prior to this.

Transmission got infected with malware again. I like those guys, but they need to revise their procedures.

Looks like ClamXav won't be free any longer -- how does that stack up against ESET Cybersecurity?

I use Intego, not free. Very polished, but I honestly have no idea how it ranks as a security solution.

This belongs in Kerplsalt if anything does…The biggest kerpslat of all?

No, another one of us isn't croaking … In fact, our longevity has been pretty damn good for now!

* * *

We started as diehard Apple fans, right? I remember this forum as early as what, the days of monsters like the Performa 6200?
We believed! We believed! And our beliefs were rewarded. Those of you who put money into AAPL know what I mean. $10,000 in 1995 is a million today. Our riches have been rewarded, our cups and orifices overflow with the bountiful gifts that the Steved one and his successor, "Tim" have given us.

But now, folks, now… WHAT THE FUCK?

Is there any hope for this company?

I'm on the Sierra GM. There is nothing compelling about any of this. I'm not sure I'll sell my stock since it'll be 15% capital gains off the top and then what? Where do I invest it in? Oi, secular stagnation makes my head hurt.

I'm buying the Apple Watch 2 (for the GPS) and a new iPhone 7 Plus (since my eyes are shit and reading close up will be almost impossible after cataract surgery this fall… the only benefit those gave me…). But I don't give a shit. And the AppleTV is a dog.

Apple has nothing going for it anymore except an ecology that we are all kind of locked into (and the fact that it's competitors are worse).

I don't see a reason to believe.

Do any of you?
