iCloud? Really?

It was time to archive the photos on my iPhone to my 6TB repository. Only...you can't really do that anymore by simply attaching your phone to you computer. It will pull everything from Camera Roll, but not, I shit you not, "My Photo Stream" which contains, and I quote, "The last 30-days or last 1000 pictures from your Camera Roll." Why? Its a goddamn mystery. The ONLY official way is to install iCloud - which one might think would be a cloud-based app lol. No. I mean, it is, but apparently its also required to get photos from "My Photo Stream" to your desktop. But only if you change your Windows 10 settings to install Media Player. JFC.

WOW! And iCloud bookmark for Chrome is REQUIRED for me to get my photos from the phone to harddrive using a sync cable???

this is one reason i never liked apple products, because they seem convoluted and fundamentally broken. they "just work", but in a way i don't want. lol

but i guess everything is going that way, especially windows >:(

In Apple's defense, when paired with OSX, iOS is really quite beautiful and effortless. Its this damn cross-functionality with Windows which infuriates me :(

yeah. to be fair, my experience with apple is limited to an old ibook, an iphone a long time ago, and then programs on windows.
