iPhoto photocasting feed support sucks

January 18th, 2006

Too bad Apple doesn’t care about proper support for photocast feeds. Mark Pilgrim summed it up on the syndication-dev mailing list with:

“iPhoto 6 doesn’t understand the first thing about HTTP, the
first thing about XML, or the first thing about RSS. It ignores
features of HTTP that Netscape 4 supported in 1996, and mis-implements
features of XML that Microsoft got right in 1997. It ignores 95% of
RSS and Atom and gets most of the remaining 5% wrong.”
