Apple’s Exclusive Interview with Adam Davidson

Apple Computer: Adam, thank you so much for taking the time to talk with us today.
Adam Davidson: You’re welcome.
AC: Tell us about your history with Apple Computer.
AD: Glad to. I was a first adopter. I was an Apple guy back in the days of Windows 3.1 and 95. I believed in Macintosh computers back when I was part of the 10%. I even remember sitting in front of an Apple IIe and playing Oregon Trail.
AC: Ha! That game is so old!
AD: Well… then so am I!
AD & AC: (shared uncomfortable laughter).
AC: Well, you’re obviously a fan. What are your hopes and dreams for these post-Steve days at Apple?
AD: Just keep doing what you’re doing and things should go fine.
AC: Really? There’s nothing that could be improved?
AD: Well… there is the issue with iCloud and iCal sync. I’ve been pretty disappointed with that.
AC: Thanks so much for your time!
AD: I mean… it seems like it should just work. Every time I look at migrating over to iCal, something makes it seem like a bad idea. I even tried again today and came across this helpful bit of info that, more or less, made me go back to a hand-written calendar again.
AC: Hm. You’re right. It seems like it should just work.
AD: Thank you.
AC: Sorry for your troubles. Would you like a complimentary copy of Oregon Trail?
AD: That sounds fun, but what I’d really like is for iCal to reliably sync between my devices.
AC: (uncomfortable silence).  Would you like that in 5 1/4″ floppy?

  1. Two things. I want Oregon Trail. I read that link and STILL can’t get my iCal to sync FROM my iPhone to my Macbook Pro. It goes the other way, but that’s only half of my calendar!! Urg.

  2. Same problem here, Lauren. I get too optimistic, give iCal a try, and BOOM: it only works half way.
