Anyone knows if the PluginManager 1.7.3 fixes the UltraBeat bug in Logic Studio? (The bug where the UltraBeat instrument sometimes doesn't save the sets with the correct samples)..
It's a matter of time. They have this iChat that they're very proud of... that nobody uses. I think the majority uses MSN or Skype, mostly because they're available on multiple platforms. Now the new iPhone platform with 3G could make iChat a killer app, and make it famous. And if they also make it available for Windows like they did with Safari then hey.. it might be a runner up. However that being the reason for Apple not to acknowledge background apps... I don't...
Ok I only read like 70% of the article, so perhaps I missed some vital detail. But I still don't understand how this will work on multiple persons at once. It sounds like it's stereoscopic*100 or something to cover all angles. Hm...
Hm... I agree that Apple should be in control of what apps they're offering at their store. No question about it. But after some time it'll be kind of like how it is with the music industry. There will be filed suits because the iPhone can only run programs offered from Apple's app store. Any other software platform can run programs offered from multiple sources. Apple shouldn't offer apps at their app store that don't go with Apple's policies, but in the long run they...
About the processor speed.. Of course there will eventually be a next generation processor. But wasn't the current processor underclocked by several hundreds of mhz? I guess if they figure out a great way to run the processor at faster speeds without stealing battery they could just update the current processor with a firmware update as they have in the past.
Today, I'm one of those whiners that we all hate so much... here goes. This day made me very sad because it means I will soon have to spend a lot of money on a mac notebook that I don't really want. MacBook Pro: Too big, old clunky keyboard, too heavy and I hate to say it: dated design. MacBook: old trackpad, unfortunately too weak on graphics for my needs, too heavy for its form factor. MacBook Air: Here I don't care about graphics performance, but I really need...
Well, Apple is the biggest winner here, no matter what. The more the iPhone spreads around the world, the better. Sure, Apple get paid for mobile usage with the official operators, but in terms of publicity, Apple is a bigger winner with unlocked phones in as many regions as possible. That said... hasn't there been several reports showing that the operators benefit from this unusual relationship as well? AT&T has increased their user base significantly, regardless of 25%...
I was using FW for DV, but not anymore.. since I'm shooting directly to SD card, so this is not an issue. But I was planning to use the laptop frontmost as a stage computer for performing music, and on the go uses. My current audio interface (and in my opinion the best audio interfaces out there) are currently FW, so it's important to me to have FW. I'll eventually have to get a new audio card anyway, but I'd rather get a FW one. Also most of my external disks are FW....
I was looking forward to the Air being my secondary computer. But now (since it lacks FireWire) I'm anticipating the next generation MacBook Pro to be my main computer and the iPhone to be my secondary "computer". A little shift in strategy. It'll be a heavier burden on my sholders, and I won't bring it around as spontainiously as I would with the Air, but I guess that's just fine. For simple tasks I'll just use the iPhone.
The AIR rocks! I would actually go ahead and place an order for a MacBook Air, if it also had a firewire-port. I hate to admit it, but for me FW is right now a little more important than low weight. So I'll just have to wait for the next MBP, or consider a MB. And by the way, I don't think it's fair to (kind of) compare the Air's lack of FireWire with the toilet iBook... By then FireWire weren't as accessible and wide spread as today. So to keep it simple. Here's my...
