DropBox worked wonderfully for me for several years. In the latest update, suddenly my updating got 'stuck' at a certain point.

Tried: reinstalling, linking and unlinking, fixing permissions, running disk utility, reinstalling DropBox and working through DropBox support's scripts to no avail. So far have wasted ~3 days trying to get it working on this one machine again. Am giving up and going to another service.

BTW: DropBox doesn't offer refunds on their prepaid plans.

Purchased MacPilot 5 last year. Was not informed that I would be automatically subscribed to an annual update subscription with a recurring fee via PayPal. (No other software that I have purchased over the past 20+ years has done this.)

Have disputed the charge with PayPal and am waiting for response.

Poor ethics will keep me away from this developer for life.

I'm a new user to Skype who signed up for the Premium version in order to enable video conferencing.


* Video conferencing is hit or miss, to put it mildly. I 've never been able to get 3+ people in a conference call at the same time without the video permanently going down for one or more of us within a few minutes or not working at all. (BTW: the free service, ooVoo, works like a charm for all of us with the same equipment).

* The user interface is horrid. It is terribly non-intuitive and definitely non-Maclike.

* Support is slow. As I type this, I started at #8 in the service support chat queue about 20 minutes ago and am now at #3 (and this is the "Premium" support).


* More ubiquitous than the other guys, so you're more likely to be able to connect to others who have the software.
