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.
Oh, what the heck, this looks like a fun thread to jump in to late. The shareholders own Apple. If Apple has a huge pile of money, that money belongs to the shareholders. At some point the shareholders will get frustrated that the Apple BoD has a huge amount of their (the shareholders') money locked up in cash equivalents and demand a) a special dividend to cut down the huge pile of money or b) an ongoing dividend to slow the growth of the huge pile of money. As long...
Agreed. US politicians like to whine and whinge about public transportation and high-speed rail. But to do that effectively you need massive concentrations of destinations near the stops. I visited Hong Kong once and was amazed at the HUGE apartment buildings and office buildings. With a population density like that, you can pull off mass transit. The USA's custom of everyone wanting a postage stamp of land to call their own spreads the population too thin for mass transit...
I just watched the video. Did not read the entire thread, but here's some comments. Steve is a MASTER presenter and salesman. He took on the folksy, humble, local boy-done-good persona with that council and worked it. His "aww shucks, I remember working for HP" story was emotion manipulating gold! The question "what does the city get out of this?" was kind of a good one, but the Wi-Fi and iPads comments were petty and pitiable. Were the councilmen looking for a...
