Epic sort fail

Was transferring some screen shots from my iPhone with Mac OS X’s “Image Capture” app when I discovered that the sort-by-date seems to have some problems:


Yes, it’s sorting by ASCII string value of the formatted date. 3/4 comes after 3/22, and 3/22/08 comes after 3/20/09. How’d Steve Jobs let this one out the door? I can only assume nobody had a memory card or camera with old photos on it when they tested…

  1. I’ll see that Those Who Need to Know get to find out about this one. I’ll file a Radar bug on Monday when I get back to work (yeah, I work there) ;)
