Too long, really – it’s such a rich source of oddness. For example, today I recevied an invitation to join some colleagues (located in Frankfurt) in a video conference. The heading in the message informed me that:
Which seemed a little odd, since a quick phone call earlier had seen some time on Wednesday morning identified as the preferred time. No matter, I opened the message to accept the invitation (it’s not clear why I couldn’t do that from the inbox/preview, but I can’t). Clicking “Accept” put the meeting into my calendar:
Whoops! Well, it was more in keeping with what I expected. To settle myself, I went for a coffee (you can tell Christmas is coming, btw: Starbucks are using the Red Cups). When I got back, Notes had been busy – the Inbox message now had this:
OK, it’s now accurate, but I’m not sure how I feel about a message being modified in any way after I’ve opened and read it.
Of course, we’re 0.5 of a release behind the current version, so maybe stuff like this has been fixed by now.
To which I can only say “hmph”.
