What you meant to say is "Microsoft made a whole lot of stew without much meat".
I agree with your point to some degree. Yes Apple are a going concern and are obligated by their corporate charter to enhance shareholder value (that means make as much money as possible). However, Apple seems to have a different ratio when it comes to balancing product quality against profit motive. AT&T is tilted way to the profit side and I don't think they innovate as much as they could. Apple seems to internally value product quality as facet of their corporate...
Nah, they are right where they want to be. They are waiting for customers to scream before they spend any money on upgrades. There was some talk of lawsuits over the lack of MMS, maybe that got them moving. The international carriers actually care about providing a quality experience to customers. Plus they probably have strong regulations governing their activities. Heaven forbid we Americans ever regulate a company to require them to provide a quality product....
Look AT&T is really SBC. And SBC was/is a hard nosed, cutthroat company more like Wal Mart than Apple. AT&T/SBC is also known for it's relentless legislative campaigns to get laws passed that specifically target their bottom line. Not just lobbying, but legislating from the board room. IMO they don't do anything the "right" way, they do it the cheap way. Just enough to get by while maximizing profit. Overbuilding a data network is not they way they roll. Under...
I still think we are all missing something here. These can't just be tablet Macs. The tablet form factor is inherently non-ergonomic and inelegant. Apple has something else going on here. There has to be a "One more thing" that none of us has thought of or seen. A plain old tablet Mac is not going to be a money maker. A tablet Mac with that extra special Jobs sauce will. We just don't know what's in the sauce.
Hmm, sounds a lot like my life.
⌃⌃⌃What he said.I have wondered about this for years. It just doesn't seem to be a goal of Apple to take FCS to that next level in power. The thing is with HD becoming the norm they really need to step up and bring 64bit and full processor awareness to the game. This might be hard, but surely it would be worth it. Maybe with Snow Leopard some of these things will come to the fore.
Not sure what you mean, but a quick look at the Pixel Corps site I do not see them or Alex recommending Motion. In fact Pixel Corp members use AE among other things. I even found an Alex Lindsay review where he said Motion doesn't replace AE or anything else, but that it was great for throwing things together. People don't pay us $350 plus an hour to throw things together.
As the Operations/IT Manager and former editor at a Mac based post house I can say that no one here would ever use Motion for anything. All my editors and designers have FCS and AE at their disposal. We also have Nuke, Shake and several 3D apps. We also have an Inferno. Motion never enters the conversation - not ever. The skilled AE artists have all evaluated Motion (3) and found it lacking for their needs. The Final Cut people who are less skilled at AE still chose...
Thank you for saying this. I too have wondered why people want tablets. They are the ergonomic equivalent of the Vulcan Death Grip - hard to master and replete with unpleasant results. If you think about the companies that have made tablets, none of them are known for their ergonomic prowess or even basic industrial design skills. I seriously doubt Apple will make a large tablet for this reason. The always popular (on the interwebs anyway) touchscreen computers suffer...
