LOL, what delusional claptrap. Just Google iCloud and "issues" and spend a few hours reading, and then do iCloud and "problems" for another round. A failure!? Of course not. But join us on Earth for a dose of reality. Limit hits to the past three months if you don't have much time.I understand it is your desire to ignore such "proof" of issues so you can make such sweeping false statements, but please, it's foolishness to state that because one can't demonstrate it's...
Well, I'm no FUDmonger, and iWork wasn't smooth for me, iCloud is fair but NOT "working incredibly well" (several account voodoos) and I would have been happy to use my iDisk more often over the years except that uploads were literally four times the time of just putting on another free cloud service account, and I was told point blank by more than one client to stop putting our files there. I've happily replaced all such Apple services I tried with better working ones...
Key to what? Not the key to "Killer Apps" not made by Apple. Who's making them?Photoshop is unwieldy because of the way of Adobe. Innovation by non-Apple companies in the Photography category? Where? If that's what you're calling a wealth of innovation, please point out the apps that are innovative that you have purchased. Naturally it's better than last year. And there still isn't an Elements killer much less a PS killer in the bunch. Many are one-trick-pony...
I spend most of my awake working time (as opposed to when I'm working and not actually awake) sitting in front of Aperture, and it's BY FAR my preferred UI between the two. But I always have to laugh when it gets printed somewhere that a big difference between the two is that LR "locks you in" to working a certain way while in Aperture you are "free" to work in a way not dictated by the software. You have a row of adjustment "bricks" that you can't change the order of....
This is necessary for them. I didn't even realize until pretty far into the game that many of the Google offshoots were even Google. Most people who own Android phones probably had no idea of the connection to Google until recently, if even then.
I happen to still be a Verizon customer for several things, my landline, DSL and 4 cell phone plan over several decades. It all randomly and without strategy fell in place, but it does give me one ability, and that is that when I say without pause that there is no company that is more horrible to deal with, is more apt to screw your accounts up and be more impossible to fix problems with, I can say it with 25 years first hand experience. The only reason I don't drop them...
Aperture's noise reduction has always been a joke. Terrible. LR has useful NR. This is not disputable : ) OTOH, while I haven't had a chance to delve deeply into LR's new shadow detail adjustments, Aperture's shadow adjustments have been completely useful and great for ages. There's a good chance that this update brings it in line with Aperture's, but that's been a long time coming. There are several Aperture features where it trumps LR, but also the reverse is...
No, the double edged sword of Apple lowering the marketplace value of software to levels that are often unrealistic for a developer to set their price at. Wasn't talking about the app store at all. Don't get me wrong, getting tools into the computers of the non pros who wouldn't have spent $300 is a great thing. But the OSX software marketplace in terms of variety in the mid to upper realm has vastly shrunk as a result, regardless of what's wonderful about the App...
True, but there's a bit of a downside when you consider that not all software developers are part of an evil empire conglomerate. (Though indy games are big, because people who like games will keep buying $1.99 games the way we used to drop $2 on comics at the candy store monthly). Check out the user forums on sites for "everything but games" software and look for enthusiasm from the developers on great new versions for $10 instead of $75. It's killed the small...
Although it's Aperture and not LR that has the well deserved reputation as behaving like an alpha release for years, but whatever. (and I've been on Aperture since shelling out for v1)
