I don't see why this isn't more abundantly obvious to many of you.   1.  ARM is going to own iOS and eventually the lowend OS X devices. 2. Intel isn't going away.   MBP, Mac Pro will remain Intel based.  How can you tell that this is happening.  Software:  Think about how many new API in Yosemite/iOS 8 were announced simultaneously,  Cloud Drive, Extensions, Photokit etc.  and I think we'll see this become a trend.  Both platforms are moving toward parity for good reason....
https://affinity.serif.com/about/  Mac Affinity Photo should support CMYK.  I think they're going offer a nice complement to Pixelmator and other apps. 
 If I wasn't so lazy I would have noticed they already have a developer program with a second generation API  http://www.filetransporter.com/app-developer/ they haven't rolled out their large partners yet either  http://www.filetransporter.com/channel-partner/ Looks like the infrastructure is coming along.  I too am interested in how it integrates with native Auto Save.   Always a wise choice. 
 I've been checking them out more once they came out with the Transporter Sync.  I'm with you on the placing a couple of these at remote places and syncing data to them for some lite DR.   They have a Versions feature in the software that I'm keeping my eye on.   The more extensible it becomes the more useful the Transporters become.    I also wonder if they'll be delivering an API for 3rd party vendors to use.  
Amazon Cloud photos is not bad.   Haven't been too impressed the Photo Library although it's in Beta so I'm reserving judgment.    Truth be told i'm looking to move off of Cloud Storage as primary or secondary storage.  I view it as tertiary storage at best.  When I can get 4TB drives for $130 I don't see the need for my photos to be all in the Cloud (locked down).     I'm keeping my eye on where Transporter series is going.  They have a 5 Bay chassis coming and now is...
I’m all for using technology in the never-ending quest of pedagogical excellence.  However the biggest weakness I’ve seen is not in the client devices but in the SIS(Student Information Systems) software foisted upon frazzled parents.  I live in a rather affluent area and I was shocked at how bad the SIS is.  I’m sure there are school districts that have better systems but I don’t think iPads are going to fix the problem in education where technology...
 Put it into perspective.  How much does it cost to product a 74 minute or less album versus producing a 74 minute film?    Why would the industry think that Music can command $10 a month when a majority of music is produced at a budget that’s probably less than 5% than the average film.   Artists make their money on tours.  Only the largest artists make anything from album sales.   Music is essential an advertisement to come See the artist perform live.   No contrast that...
$60 annually sounds right. In my home music streaming plays second fiddle to Netflix. No way are we paying more for Music
I have a hard time complaining.     It used to be I bought the hardware and then had to cough up money for the OS & Apple applications.  Today the OS and a majority of Apple consumer applications are free.   The money to develop these has to come somewhere.    I don't mind the soldered RAM.   For my purposes an 8GB mini is fine.  What I can't wait to learn is what is involved in adding an SSD to it later.
