 Wrote a reply and then saw that Lorin Schultz responded perfectly.  Agree 100%.  Yep.  If you've got content there, it will hold useful info.  If not it won't.  Though I think saying there's almost nothing above 10k is probably the coffee talking   :  )   Valuable content between 10 and 20k.  This is the whole bit discussion in a nutshell.  Original recording should be at the highest bit rate currently available.  But once you've summed the tracks to a mixed piece of...
   Because you're using a completely flawed use of the chart to make your point.  First of all, the chart Aperture is #5 on is for the top grossing apps, not the most downloaded or used, where it's actually #16, so that's your figure.  The image editor Acorn is the #1 purchased app of all according to the App Store charts and no one could use that fact to argue that Acorn is the #1 most used Mac program and especially that it is therefore a major presence in the world of...
Wasn't commenting on the value or quality or pros or cons of either program.   Plenty of photographers (including myself) do pro work with Aperture.    But LR's presence in the pro community, where nearly everyone who has LR also has their $80 download of Aperture, has always been higher, and over the past few years Aperture's share among them has decreased.   It's just the way it is.  
 
 PhilBoogie, there isn't a migration tool.  Aperture Versions can't be imported into LR.  Moving a library over means doing the same adjustments over again, which has its upside. because, although if you've got huge amounts of images it's ridiculous to redo them all, I always find that taking a second crack later at images that are important to me often yields worthwhile improvements.   Redoing brushwork is a PITA, but otherwise making the same global changes isn't that...
I agree with defraserii, Mel, igamogam, et al regarding Aperture.  As far as LR's interface it's really the issue of moving away from a UI/paradigm that one has used since the start.  LR seems really awful until you decide you simply must get on with it, and then anything is possible.  I've owned it for a year and barely cracked it because I far prefer the Aperture way I've been working for so long that I haven't gotten up to speed on it, so whenever getting a lot done in...
"IK Multimedia's iLoud is a 40-watt stereo speaker, which means it puts out a combined 40 watts of sound split between four drivers. That's plenty loud. By way of comparison, Eric Clapton's favorite tube amp only puts out 5W, and he mics it up to play big shows. " Eeeek, that's terrible. Mainly, a watt is a watt but comparing outputs of SS and tube guitars amps is meaningless and not because of how they sound. You generally need 2 or 3 times the wattage in SS to match...
 It's good to not make too much of an assumption, but here you're putting much more of a spin on the quotes and story than those simply going with what Cook was clearly implying.   There really aren't a whole lot of ways to interpret "Different than we thought" in this context.
 Very true.   Running Windows (natively) was a selling point for Apple, but Boot Camp has never been the smoothest way to do it. As an aside, what are the chances of Apple breaking the ability to run a virtual OS at all in future hardware or systems?       That makes it an interesting situation, because 8 might be fantastic but businesses still haven't been making much of a move on it.   Seems the majority of dual users in the near future will still be using 7 solutions...
 Agree.   Though with any other manufacturer the difference in the retail price of two devices with 8G difference of storage would be marginal.  By not slashing the price enough and instead offering an 8Gig model Apple is going to have a hard time getting much of a response except for "Big whoop." I disagree with those saying there's no market for an 8Gig device in general.  Having done such a remarkable job putting iPads and Minis on the street, there's now a new niche of...
