Apple has some of the LEAST intuitive software out there. I can honestly say I've gone down far more detours using recent Apple software, and finding out how to change some poorly described radio button function, than with Adobe software.
Someone else will know the reality (I'm not a programmer, I just play one on the net (as Robert Young used to say in commercials), but I'm not sure if that would mean writing whole hog for Core Image and then only making parts available. From what I can see in Pixelmator, etc, the apps that are written using the Apple hooks use them as much as they can. IIRC from (either the Acorn or Pixelmator can't remember) user forum, some of the things that simply couldn't be...
I'm with you all the way, but last I checked the only capable pixel editors in the app store were really Elements competition, no PS. Nearly all, even the good ones, don't even deal with 16 bit images (if you open a 16 bit TIFF it immediately gets slammed down to 8 bits, and who knows if it's even doing that in the least harmfull manner). I might have missed something, but I never see that anything has popped up on the radar at DPR or places like that. I would surely...
I stopped in the NYC Soho and Upper West Side stores yesterday and there were plenty being sold, practically a non-stop line of them going out the door. Wild. No idea about certain models, but these articles must be about ordering online for delivery or in store pickup, because even the Best Buys here all have several different models in stock. I even stopped into the Soho Verizon store to pay my bill at the kiosk and their versions were in stock aplenty. No wait for...
Way to completely misrepresent what she actually said. Congrats. It wasn't nearly as good as Michele Bachmann implying several times that certain specific natural disasters were due to God's unhappiness with Democrats, and then saying "Now I'm not saying it is, but how much of a coincidence is it?" You'd have to look much harder for such boneheadedness from Clinton's original remark.
After reading through the article it certainly sounds like a fishing expedition, but not on CR's part, more on all the blogs that are picking it up and running as if it's more than it is. The article says it runs a little warmer. Everywhere else I've seen the article referenced it's used in a screaming, scandalous, headline grabbing context, and then you click to the article and it's this little 200 word thing with no exclamation points that basically says it runs a...
Link? That's a new one to me and pretty mind blowing if true. Not doubting you, just wanting to save myself 2 minutes of Googling to read more detailed info.edit: Nevermind, see that it broke in the UK on the 5th. Wow. Have I been purposely not paying attention to Android articles or did this not make much of a splash in the U.S.?
Wow, a sentence loaded with response options if I ever heard one!But seriously, this is the way too many companies do it. AVID's tech support, at least the kind you look for when you go to their site, is nearly entirely led by their User Community forums, and your only chance of getting through your crashes is to hope that the smart guy in Cleveland is finished with his session and checking in because all of the answers are from users. AVID also pretty much lets the...
It really does take on the feel of a place that is trying to make you give up before you find what you need, doesn't it? You have to click on five links to go to where you thought you needed to go, but it turns out to bring you back to an unhelpful page you were on three clicks ago. It's such a weird thing, that the Apple site is designed so un-Apple like. Here's a perfect example: You're at the main level of a support subject, say Aperture. You want to do a search. ...
The Apple community discussions used to be a great place to solve an issue but they haven't been for a while. Apple made a handful of gradual changes over the past few years and it's degenerated quite a bit, but I hesitate to blame the posters too much. It's currently laid out terribly, the search function is nearly guaranteed to NOT give useful returns on a subject you already know is hotly discussed, and much as I'm an Apple devotee, there is no worse place to try to...
