Web Gallery is the one thing I'll really dislike losing. Having the ability to upload photos to it right from iPhoto, and movies up to it right from iMovie, was very convenient and allowed friends and family around the world to see photos and videos of mine all in one easy to use place. It's obvious that I'm in the minority when it comes to using this service, and most likely don't care about sharing photos and videos with family members and friends, but it was well...
I'm with you on this. I intentionally skip models of Apple products, and even more so due to the two year contract I had when I got the 3GS. I intentionally skipped the 4, and am awaiting the 5. My credit card will drop the moment I'm able to get the 5. I think there are a lot of people waiting for the 5. We'll see how their numbers look after it's introduced.
I'm sure you have your reasons when it comes to why you said what you did, but I'm running the latest version of Flash and it causes havoc on my Mac Pro, with 8-cores. There's not a snowballs chance in hell that I want flash on my 3GS that has only one. When it comes to Adobe going after users pissed off at Apple due to Final Cut Pro X, I have no problem with it. Those people were on the fence to begin with. If anything, most people will simply return to their prior...
The loss of Web Gallery and the associated iPhone App will be the one that hits me the hardest. Web Gallery was the way I shared my photos and videos with family and friends in one easy to use site and App. Now what will we have? Nothing. Apple screwed us good with that omission. Apple needs to stop taking away options we currently have and work on adding functionality instead. While many of you likely were content with a flickr account or some other service, they...
With the release of the keynote discussing iCloud, one very painful omission for me personally, was the lack of continuing the MobileMe Web Gallery, and the additional iPhone Gallery App that went along with it. This feature was apparently used by so few Mac users that Apple felt compelled to discontinue this service for the users who did use it. I've started this thread to discuss among fellow Mac users which methods will now be offered to people who take a lot of...
Thanks for your suggestions. I've solved the problem. My Mac Pro is back to being a beast again.
Here's what I did, and you can always do a variation of this. Bay1 = 120GB OWC SSD, Bay 2 = 2TB hard drive, Bay 3 = 2 TB hard drive, Bay 4 = 2 TB hard drive. I basically broke my data up into the different drives. Bay 1 is for the OS and the apps and such, but none of the data. Bay 2 is all photos. Ever since I switched over to a D-90 I've been consuming so much hard drive space that it made sense to have a drive just for iPhoto / Aperture. Bay 3 is raw HD Video. I...
My current Mac Pro is great at a lot of things, but the 667 MHz Bus and Memory are killing me. It's also unable to boot into the 64-bit kernel, though it handles all the 64-bit apps well. My 30" Cinema Display is still going strong and I see no sense in replacing it. That all said, this new Mac Pro might just entice me to upgrade. I just don't know if I'm willing to part with that kind of money for a computer that I only use at home. I never thought I'd get to the...
I look forward to seeing this when it's pushed as an iTunes Podcast like their other keynotes. As of 9:30pm Pacific time, it hasn't been posted. My internet connection simply can't handle streaming video. I look forward to seeing this keynote, and to moving to a house where I can actually get a high speed internet connection!
As a long standing rule with Apple hardware products I will skip generations. I bought the first iPhone, and skipped the 3G. I bought the 3Gs and skipped the 4. When the iPhone 5 is released, I'll upgrade to it. I'll give my mom the 3Gs without the SIM to be used as an iPod Touch with wifi. I'm not sure that I agree that Apple is making a wise choice by denying 3Gs users an upgrade to iOS 5, especially when it's selling them right now in their stores without a warning...
