I'm sorry but I just don't think that's the case. Apple has narrowed in on the machines that meet the needs of 90-95% of the market, or at least what they want for their market. Just as Apple could conceivable capture much more market share by creating a $300 Mac, dabbling in the low end isn't in their interests. And neither is trying to cater to the niches between their existing 3 desktop offerings. It's up to YOU to either reconcile your issues with those offerings. ...
Are you talking about the mythical mini tower? Do you really expect that's ever going to happen? When such a marginal part of Apple's business is even desktops, when and even smaller single digit percentage of that market is buying MacPros, how could you possibly believe that what you want is in Apple's future? For the very small minority of people buying MacPros, they want the space for expansion, so I'd be very surprised to see Apple change the current form factor in...
Decades...? BWAHAHAHAHAH!!!!
Marks comments did not AT ALL lead towards iPad connectivity. He was listing a series of general topics that were surely top of mind when Apple was working on the new FCP. There "might" be some way to leverage the iPad as an input device, but it could equally or more likely be that he was referencing the iPad as a distribution platform. The tea-leaf reading of the intentionally vague statements made by Mark and Larry Jordan are getting ridiculous. I'm glad this...
It would be huge?
Kidding about what? You can either return your iPad1 entirely and wait for iPad2 in a week, OR if you want to keep the one you've got, you can retroactively get the $100 discount they just started offering yesterday.
Apple's primary design motivation is THIN. Either you're onboard with this or not. Apple wants light, durable, thin, and long lasting battery life. An abundance of ports doesn't fit into that equation. Most people would never use those ports, so why would apple compromise the design to appease a relatively minor segment of the customer base. If you need a specific input/output peripheral, you can get a dongle for it.
If Apple is going to hold an event, it will be for the iPad, not for 4.3. The iPad2 may SHIP with 4.3- which could contain some specific minor features, but I'd bet heavily against it being a key part of the event. Why? Because iOS 5 is just around the corner. Let's look at the past 3 years: iPhone OS SDK Preview Event, MARCH 6, 2008 OS 3.0 Preview Event, MARCH 17, 2009 OS 4.0 Preview Event, APRIL 8, 2010 We aren't far off from this years iOS 5 Preview for...
Those are COMPLETELY different aspects of post. The last thing picture editors want is their tool cluttered with high end compositing features, and the last thing anyone would use for basic cutting is Nuke. Are you crazy?
They may be giving up 30% of revenue at the point of sale, but think of all the things they're saving on: packaging, shipping, advertising. When you buy a product in the store, do you really think that the company that made it is getting 100% of that retail price? As to your second point- let's be clear, you're not going to see apps like CS Suite, Final Cut Studio or 3D Studio Max on the appStore. Inherently, these expensive software packages are LARGE installs...
