BitTorrent Sync 2.0 sucks!

Yes, I get that you need to make money, and for things that improve my life and my work I gladly pay. But you idiots blew it by breaking everything to force people to pay. If I have to setup everything again on multiple machines, only because you morons had to change everything in order to justify the ‘PRO’ features for 40 bucks a year, all you accomplish is me getting annoyed and frustrated!

If you had just added those features on top and had just kept the structure – which we’ve all used for years now – intact, many of us would pay in a blink. This way you’ve lost a lot of potential customers. If you make me have to setup everything from scratch, I can directly look for alternatives and that is what many others will do too!

I know how hard it is to earn money these days. I know how much work went into creating BitTorrent Sync and I know how much it costs you to keep it running. But there is no reason to slap us all in the face.

And no, I’m not talking about the added cap on folders we can sync with the free version. Again – I get that and I would have directly pulled my credit card out. But you idiots broke everything on all my machines only because your need for money blinded your thoughts on usability.

Shame on you!

When using an Apple Thunderbolt Display it is very simple to adjust the brightness of it. But when using a display from another vendor – for example when you have hooked up a 4K display to your Mac – you usually have to dig into the more or less usable menu from the display or you are forced to use tiny, hidden buttons on the backside of the 34″ monitor etc. And if your are using a Hackintosh you often can’t change the brightness at all.

Or you could just use DimmrApp to adjust (reduce) the brightness. And yes, I know that there are one or two other apps out there that will do the same. But DimmrApp comes with a nifty additional feature:

With DimmrApp you can also adjust the Gamma/Coloring of the display; meaning you can mimic reading on yellowish paper and change the contrast even when the display is already dimmed down. This way you can minimize the stress on your eyes and it helps you to better focus on reading, writing, and coding when all the other people are asleep…
