Not Apple's style. They would buy something like Pixelmator, at a much cheaper price, and use it to destroy Adobe.Actually all the attention they have been giving Sketchbook could be for that very notion. Just need to do more
This is classic. Push out a rumor, find out it's way false but to drag it out have rumors that it's delayed, pushed back etc. Then in no couple of weeks when folks patience is running out, announce that Bests and Apple couldn't come to an agreement and the deal is off.
Not at my office. Everything is on Macs went to other offices that use macs so we just use iWork. Or it's something that is a PDF so the other side can't alter it. Or a script which is either PDF or Final Draft.We are not the norm sure, but there are probably a few offices like us out there. Just depends on what industry you are talking toPs. Check your dictionary, I don't think that's the word you meant to use. Perhaps ubiquitous?
A lot of folks like to use that argument but when you buy it out right you are atill paying for the privilege of using it. Just at a different rate. Crunch the numbers and is it really that much different in costs. Sure if you buy a copy and use it for six years without any updates you might notice. But many folks don't do that, they reup with every version.If you really don't want to pay to play then you should be torrenting etc.
To a degree yes. If the nets won't approve the extension of content contracts Apple can't put said materials up. If the developers don't sign up for making Apple TV worthy versions of their games, what's the point of Apple bothering with that direction if they are even thinking about it. They can change the UI but that isn't really going to drive sales since folks aren't spending all their time staring at that. They go through it in a few seconds to content
It didn't really hurt sales which is the whole point of those events. To introduce things to the media to get them to drum up business to make sales. As for people's budgets, the only ones that would really be bothered are those that have to have the latest and greatest the moment it comes out. Most folks don't. And those that do know the score so they know to save up for that big hit
