In addition to various other points made by others such as: the price on iTunes is comparable with, for example, Amazon, and the highly saleable nature of iPods (e.g. in Europe) without TV shows on iTunes it is surely highly in NBCs interest that Apple should sell iPods as this will expand the market for sales on iTunes of NBCs shows; a virtuous cycle! To make out that it is purely in Apple's interests is another mistake of NBCs along with attempts at outrageous price...
Apologies, I should have been a little clearer: the 'well-managed expectations' was referring to the name change that Pages had over AppleWorks; the 'not-well-managed expectations' was with iMovie '08 as the name is 'the same' as its predecessor (ie. merely moved on in version number). Overall, I am suggesting that while Apple has made a mistake over this iMovie '08 issue, we should not see it out of proportion and that it is some sort of sign of arrogance that pervades...
Absolutely.
Oh, I forgot to say, Group 1 normally tries to explain away their defensiveness by inventing extra but unnecessary and inappropriate Groups that are either the same as Group 1 or support Group 1 behaviour. And Group 1 also (incorrectly) tries to suggest that: Group 3 don't appreciate Apple's tremendous inventiveness in developing paradigm-shifting software (e.g. in video editing), or that Group 3 reject all of something just because they don't like part of it, as a way of...
An interesting observation. However, the major difference is that Apple well-managed the expectations of the Customers by renaming the new product (thus avoiding too-much in the way of assumed features) and by showing clearly what it did do well. The iMovie '08 issue (while having the similarity you refer to) arose due to the clearly allowed impression (by keeping the app name the same) that it built on what had gone before but included a major innovation in editing as well.
Amongst other possible groups there seem to be at least 3, as follows, commenting on this thread: People who accept all Apple output and decisions as boundlessly wonderful, as if to criticise Apple would be unfriendly or inherently disloyal to a great friend People who see the (evidently) missing features of iMovie '08 as the worst thing anyone can do to a friend and a betrayal and go on to sound as if they are looking to abandon Apple as a lost cause that is going...
Yes, as you and others have stated there are clear and important omissions from iMovie '08. The Steve Jobs presentation, declaring it to be so different to the earlier version, could not have reasonably been judged to imply that significant omissions had been made. The emphasis was on ease-of-use developments but the remainder of the feature-set was trusted to be at least constant and probably enhanced a bit further. To not manage expectations regarding the feature-set...
Well clearly there are more powerful database systems than Filemaker but you'll need to specify tougher criteria than that to exceed Filemaker's limits! Since Filemaker 7 you've been able to develop Filemaker DBs with up to 7 TeraBytes of data, 250 simultaneous Filemaker client users and (at the same time) 100 simultaneous web users (and you can also add in up to 50 ODBC clients). For many, even quite large Company database projects (unless you are talking all staff in say...
And given the lower penetration of Apple into businesses compared with the home suggests a much higher than 5.6% share of the home market. How soon might we all expect the 'halo effect' of these home sales to drive people at all levels of employment from new entrants to senior managers to 'demand' Macs? (Between now and around 2010 I suspect quite a few more managers who know the advantages of Macs will be achieving senior management positions and at present, it looks like...
Yes, Quad Core at that!
