Gender: Male
HAL's capabilities, like all the technology in 2001, were based on the speculation of respected scientists. Marvin Minsky, director of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and one of the most influential researchers in the field, was an adviser on the film set. In the mid-1960s, computer scientists were generally optimistic that machines with HAL's capabilities would exist within a few decades. For example, AI pioneer Herbert Simon had predicted in 1965 that "machines will be capable, within twenty years, of doing any work a man can do".

However, as 2001 approached, it became clear that the film's depiction of computer technology was too optimistic. Capabilities such as natural language processing, lip reading, and commonsense reasoning on the part of computers were still science fiction.

This tool is not needed any more when using Chrome and having switched on the upload option in the web interface of Google Play Music. Chrome itself is then taking care of uploading your music from the given sources, and syncing your playlists from iTunes to Google Play Music. Worked so far for me.

Wow, this really seems expensive to me, for what it does there are some really strong competitors out there that don't charge for their software.

So disappointed. In 10.9.0, Mail stopped working (crashes over crashes). In 10.9.1, Apple fixed it, and I gave it another try.

Now, in 10.9.2, I regret it, as Mail stopped working again on four machines simultaneously. Mail keeps crashing and crashing. I'm unable to use it.

I'm so glad I've got alternatives like the rock solid Airmail, which I heavily recommend.

Starting up Mail after the 10.9.2 update, it hangs about 2 minutes without doing or showing anything, then the crash message shows up. No conversion dialog box or the like.

I'm no Apple dev, and I didn't file bugs or collected the crash logs. I hoped to get some useful info here, in the first place. But obviously, most of you people had no problems with the update.

Well then, I'll do the only thing possible on those 4 machines: Reverting back to 10.9.1 via Time Machine. Then, waiting for a better update sometime in the future.

Strange, I never had such severe problems with any Apple updates prior to Mavericks...

I had GPGMail and Attachment Tamer installed, but I removed them prior to the installation. No plug-ins in sight, but still no launch.

Still a great, useful and trustworthy software.

I wonder though, why the MacAppStore version is at 2.2.5 whereas the free version (that I cannot use because of the installed MAS version) is already at 2.4.0. Is there an update in the works that is still in Apple's approval queue...?

Waiting for a corrected version.

Feature rich, but not one of the fastest, and, unfortunately, one of the most intrusive browsers I’ve seen to date.

Switches to default browser without asking for permission to do so, as well as installing a menu extra.

Has problems to process download links from file hosting sites, which Safari and Chrome do handle well.

Asks me to choose my home folder on startup. But I can't do it because all is greyed out.

What gives...?!

Thanks for your reply.

However, it doesn't seem so rare. It happens on all three machines I tried on.

Can you explain, why should I contact you? Frankly, I'd prefer having a bug-free version released that I can actually use.

Newest version cures my problems.

Cudos to the dev for making it possible.

Great software with some great features that others don't have, like QuickMatch, which is outstandingly useful in my opinion.

However, as soon as you throw several thousands of fonts at it, the Suitcase app gets really increasingly sluggish to an almost unusable degree. Am I too demanding…?

Apart of that, it's finally a very good update which brings Extensis Suitcase back to par with the competition.

Well, I have even more fonts to deal with, and that's where the slowliness starts to show. And yes, I have a fast SSD, too.

"Comming soon" all the way.

Obviously much too early for a release, even for a alpha/beta.

Hi IObit, thanks for coming back to me. I probably was using beta 1 indeed, and will now download the new one to give it another try.

Thanks for keeping me updated!

Cannot select the search field in the current version. I can click on it, and enter some data, which brings up the results, but I cannot see what I type.

Previous version was fine.

Newest version 1.3.1 doesn't show any lists for me any more. The space stays empty...

Anyone else experiencing this?

TotalFinder seems to totally kill Finder Window animations after uninstallation. No windows are animated any more on open/close.

Is there any way to get them back, i.e. via Terminal?

Thanks for any help.

Nice try. But it always crashes on importing my iTunes library.
I won't start from scratch with my playlists, so it's basically unusable for me right now.

Hoping for a bug fix.

Thanks for your fast reply.

It's always crashing close to the 90 % mark, indeed. I have about 4.900 songs loaded in iTunes, of which about 4.300 have been imported into Enqueue when the crash occurs.

Hope you get it resolved, because I really like the app, and intend to replace my iTunes usage by Enqueue.

Version 5 Final is crashing immediately when I start it up. The betas didn't. I removed every trace and reinstalled to no avail. Sigh. I *want* to use it, but I can't. What gives?

4.3.3 crashes on launch: An unexpected error has occurred ("AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'RawServer').

Things keep getting worse with BitTorrent. Transmission or Bits on Wheels are waaaay better and more reliable.

Even a BETA version has to fulfill at least one thing: I must be able to LAUNCH it sucessfully. Otherwise, I can't even evaluate...
