No wait performance? Have the editors actually used FCP X? It can suffer from quite a bit of lag, even on high end Mac Pros. Try keeping more than a few events or projects open. Try exporting to Compressor. Try using compound clips liberally. No wait, my ***. Ps I like the software quite a bit and its multicam implementation is the best around but apple still has some real performance issues to address.
You want to talk about stealing taxpayer dollars, let's start with the massive entitlement apparatus being expanded and entrenched daily by your liberal wacko heroes.
Yuppp!
Whatever Apple decides to do with the cash, I hope they throw in a 4-for-1 stock split for good measure.
OH GIVE ME A BREAK! The more money you have, the easier it is to make more? In a free market, which people like you are constantly trying to dismantle, it doesn't work that way. That's why the richest people in our country today came from families that weren't even on the map a generation or two ago! Steve Jobs, the founders of Google, Microsoft, Fed Ex, Genentech, Intel, WalMart, Yahoo, Amazon, Facebook, etc. etc. etc....they don't come from The Rockefellers,...
The money was already taxed when it was earned. What's left belongs to the owner to do what they want, including leaving it to family or organizations when they die. If you don't think the direct heirs of a wealthy person have claim to their parents' or their relatives' or supporters' money, then how could you think the government has a claim? What did the government and "the people" do to earn the money? ABSOLUTElY NOTHING. But they want to take it and spend it on...
FCP X is a very innovative app. It does some core things MUCH better than conventional editors, and many missing features can/will be added with some time. Its real issue is performance -- it slows down to a crawl as projects expand beyond a couple of minutes, and that's on top-of-the-line gear. The bigger issue is Apple's commitment to anything that's not a mass market consumer product. From high-end workstation users getting the boot to iWork Mac users going 2+ years...
My god, there's so much knee-jerk populism and brain-dead anti-business rhetoric here. As industries mature, as the cel phone industry is doing, they ALWAYS consolidate. Car companies, computer companies, airlines, etc. etc. etc. You can sit on your dumbass high-horse all day long and cite "what's best for the consumer" but it doesn't change the market conditions that real-world companies and their management have to cope with. They can't get by on smug populist...
Thanks for hurling personal insults in what was otherwise a normal forum conversation! In light of that, you RETARD, I'd like to point out that this entire thread is conjecture....ie, people expressing their opinions and guesses about Jobs' view on philanthropy. Nobody here claims to have known him. Nobody claims to know what he thought lately on the matter.... I certainly didn't claim that. I said "Personally I think..." which is a pretty good signal that I'm not putting...
You both speak to the same issue, so I'll answer together. I've noticed that a lot of people who support Big Philanthropy, like they support Big Government, value the intent of the philanthropic act as much as they value the end results of that act. When I talk to people about hugely wasteful and destructive government programs (like welfare, or school bussing, etc. etc. etc.) I've heard people say "at least they're trying", as if hugely failing in the endeavor is...
