To all those saying MS can't innovate I have a few items for you: Kinect http://www.wired.com/magazine/2011/06/mf_kinect/ Surface http://www.microsoft.com/surface/en/us/default.aspx Photosynth http://www.microsoft.com/surface/en/us/default.aspx And MS crushes Apple in the business enterprise space. MS knows how to handle big corporate customers. Apple does not - see the recent FCP fiasco. I completely agree that MS could be so much more with a more tech-savvy...
Oh boy! A Ballmer bashing thread! Yippee! 1) Hey, Steve B. Apple's computers are Windows computers, too. MS sells an operating system that Macs can run - and many do because they need both Mac OS X and Windows. 2) MS sells Office for Mac OS and Windows. It's a very popular product on both platforms. On the PC side, Apple is as much a target platform as a competitor. How about focusing on the former? 3) In the cell phone market, yeah, MS has an uphill climb....
Could Apple come out with a new display technology to give existing tech a kick in the pants? SED was very promising but hit legal and manufacturing problems; or maybe FED, or something like LaserVue? LCD and LED TVs throw a great picture at native resolutions, but they always seem "pixelly" to my eye. IIRC, the "Retina Display" of the iPhone was a big leap forward in handheld resolution. Could Apple pull something similar in the living room? I'm not suggesting Apple...
Your troll-fu is strong. You managed to derail a thread about the GM of Lion into a Lion UI vs Win 8 UI match. - Jasen.
Because FCP stories are generating lots of hits and forum posts. Even the posts in this thread are mostly rehashes of what has been said in the other FCPX threads.- Jasen.
Amen!
I read the above article and share the nervousness and discontent about the new version. It's not so much that the new version is radically new, but Apple appears to be dropping (or redirecting) all information and references to the previous version. It's fine to have a new version, but in the Pro world you need to support old stuff for a while while people transition to the new stuff and the new stuff gets past 1.0 issues. If I were an editor faced with transitioning to...
You need one of these. I think it's been well established before that the TV market is commoditized with thin margins. Not the kind of market Apple plays in - but the same could be said for the Windows PC market, but Apple still makes lots of money on Macs. Another problem I have with an Apple TV is that the TV is frequently just a display device connected to a much larger home theater system - at least at the high-end, which is where Apple likes to play. Receiver, amps,...
Do I get any credit for the assist? - Jasen.
The US happens to have two - maybe three, if you count Libya - vey expensive wars going on. Bring that money home and put shovels in people's hands instead of guns. There have been lots of stories about the USA's failing bridges & roads. Let the feds pour dollars into those sorts of projects rather than shooting expensive missiles, etc. But my cynical opinion is that the military-industrial complex holds way too much power to let that happen. - Jasen.
