I do suspect that the database engine has been improved substantially although I only have 7000 photos to test with. iPhotos was never intended to handle professional size photo databases -- thus Aperture. It is time for a reworking of the guts for sure, I just don't like some of the other changes.
 Their record says otherwise with iMovie. I hope your right because that would be a huge upgrade from just iPhoto parity. If this is the case they have a funny way of rolling forward with it -- EOL Aperture and intro Photos parallel to iPhoto although once moved from iPhoto it is pretty much a one way street. I suspect this is more of a way to be on all platforms (via iCloud) and to attract users from the WinWorld & Google. This does help keep the (supposed) slide from...
 I beg to differ with your hyperbole regarding Photo. I don't think even the development team would make such exaggerated claims (and doubtfully with as much vitriol). I dare say you have no business calling me a troll. I am not a life long fan of Apple although I did buy my 1st Mac in Mar 1984 and have been a developer since 1986 (they called Certified Developers back in the day). I worked at Apple in engineering for several years (was there for the earthquake). I am not...
The very definition of "Beta" is feature complete but needs to be tested. This would be alpha or developmental. I would not expect to get those missing features back until a large group raises enough hell to get their attention. Of course this is a perfect opportunity for a 3rd party but that will end up costing some bucks at the expense of integration. So far the API to Photos seems to be very thin (as not robust, i.e., not all is exposed). After setting up numerous...
Yes you can. It sucks. Reminds me of the neutering that was done to iMovie. Apple claimed it was simple and so much easier to use. The thing is that they did not tell you they were cutting features so that it does not have parity (or other features compelling enough to throw out the old). It does not do what iPhoto does (editing, viewing). It changes the paradigm from events and albums as your main navigation to a timeline (yes you can still have events and albums). It...
Didn't feel targeted therefore no apology necessary -- just a tad disoriented. I agree about the media. I think the media frenzy is an unfortunate side effect of the internet connected world i.e., to many Bozos claiming authority on subjects they know little about and audiences that are not skeptical enough to question them.
I am not sure how the reference to "gorgeous" worked its way in but I never used the word in this thread (or any other that I can remember).
As I recall there was a lot of (undue) pressure from more than one whacked out judge to settle these things. (BTW: I strongly disagree with the tactics that a couple of US Federal Judges have taken about scope of the law suits and feel that at least one is due to be censured for her uncalled for behavior to narrow this down.) I never said "Steve Jobs would have listened to accountants ... to save a few bucks" but when you get down to it that is one of the kind of decisions...
I suspect it was a simple choice of ROI. Somebody said 'how long are we going to flog this dead horse' and all parties met with something they could live with. Isn't the definition of a compromise when all parties leave with an agreement that none are completely happy with?
Ethics and morality dictate that lawyers should provide a service of some real value and I would argue that at the point that the tactics they use meet or exceed the value of the service they provide then something is wrong. There are areas of law practice where the lawmakers of come in and said that there is a maximum amount that can be charged. I don't see many lawyers clamoring for that business. As in most all businesses there are those that practice out of bounds (or...
