There's actually another way to look at it. If the development costs of QuickTime begin to be recovered from this new interest in the more advanced features, then Apple may be inclined to expand the list of free features since they'd have nothing to lose from it. BBEdit is a great example. Bare Bones were obviously making sufficient income from the "pro" version of BBEdit to announce that TextWrangler would be completely free. If we insist on living out of a "bargain bin",...
I totally agree that full-screen playback is a silly pay-for feature. In fact, that and the ability to "Save As" movies from web sites were pretty much the only two features I was looking for. But, I realize that a lot of resources are put into QuickTime, so I don't mind paying a few dollars to support that.
Don't worry about it, bedouin. Those are just cheapskates looking for a way to avoid paying for something of value. You're better than them, right? I had a license for QT6 (two actually: Mac+Win), which came in handy many times. Now it's time to upgrade to QT7, I guess.
In a few years, we'll probably have the 9th or 10th generation of the iPod family... it's moving that fast. I think Apple is on top of the market, the entire market, and creating new ones with each release.
Have you actually used an eMac? The screens are amazing. Flat, crisp, bright. Top quality next to standard PC monitors (which I use daily). We all thought it was ugly, but it grew on us (I think I speak for most). Apple created it to meet a demand placed upon them by the educational market (after they announced the death of CRT). It served its purpose will, and for that, it was a notable product. Onwards and upwards, though.
You speak is if the problem affects everyone. It just may be an issue on your computer. iTunes 5.0 didn't deliver nearly the number of new features that I was expecting. I think they don't want to rock the boat too much or people might fall off. "It's floating great, just leave it".
Promised? I think you're confused between rumors and announcements.
The majority of consumers buy a phone to make phone calls. They buy a toaster to make toast, but oddly, they buy these multifunction printer/scanner/faxes to print documents. The extra features rarely get used. Convergence devices have their place, but not in the mainstream mindset. (remember, I said "majority" -- there are always exceptions)
I'd like to see some pictures. Let's see 'em folks!
Remarkable viewpoint, and I believe it. Truly an inspiring company.
