Mac OS X "The current beta build of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, released to developers at WWDC '07, is not as polished as what people have come to expect of Apple's design team - users are still left with at best several disagreeable changes, and at worst a hideous hodgepodge of HIG contradictions. I have broken down 5 onscreen blunders that detract from the user experience and make Leopard the ugliest and most uncharacteristically 'Apple' OS to date." Thanks to MacWereld for pointing this article out.

Nope, I can very well restore my contacts with Previous Version.

I get that "you haven't used it" goes both ways right?

You can restore ALL contacts. But can you very easily with a few clicks restore ONE contact. Can you choose which version from which date? Not nearly as easily as with TimeMachine. How about records in a database? One record? Sorry, not with the XP or Visata backup/restore program. You restore the whole thing.

So again. Go to the video to show you why it is different. Have you done that yet? I thought now.

Yes, you can.
Open the previous version of the changed contact file or the folder containing the deleted contact file and drag that one file over to the current version of the Contacts folder, or you can open the previous file, copy whatever data you want from it into the current file. Same for the DB or any other file.

Yes you can. Stop regurgitating the FUD fed to you. You're wrong.
