That's what doesn't make sense about this story. Apple is usually tight lipped about everything. Why would they announce this now after so many months of nothingness on the Aperture front? All it does is encourage people to jump ship to Adobe. Something isn't right with this story and leads me to believe more will be announced in the near future. Questions answered!
I think this is a risky investment. I realize they are cool and well-built but what's to stop a some one from coming along tomorrow with a competitive offering? Reminds me a lot of Flip cameras. They too owned their market, then all of a sudden here one day and gone the next. Granted they were bought and then destroyed from within by Cisco, seems too easy that something similar could happen here.
A huge miss by everyone on the new programming language. A big ha, ha, goes out to every one who said secrecy and surprises are a thing of the past now that Tim Cook is running the ship. No one guessed the details of last years WWDC big surprise, the new Mac Pro.
