 The code base for PS must be gargantuan after so many years. It's not something they could port quickly with a finite number of developers who really understand large portions of it. I also wouldn't expect to see it conform to app store pricing conventions. You will probably see an iPad version added to your creative cloud subscription at some point.
 Apple doesn't have anywhere near as many employees. They're also in much better financial shape. As the article mentions, about half of those employees are retail. Apple would have to lay off roughly two-thirds of their retail staff to the number of HP layoffs. The arstechnica chart is a little misleading. It mentions Apple retail for contextual reasons, yet it doesn't mention how many Samsung employees are tied to manufacturing facilities.
I have no idea why you would want to do this. I would personally just use an ssd with enough space to put all of that in one place with ~30% drive space remaining. It's still a bad idea to completely fill a drive, even an ssd.
I didn't think they had that many people, but it's still a high percentage for a mature company. My point was that if they planned well as they went along, they shouldn't have to lay off 10% of their staff. I'm not even sure why they have Whitman as ceo.
Laying off that many people suggests that they have done a terrible job of anticipating and dealing with market conditions. Fluctuations wouldn't be that large if they were well positioned.
It's not actually true. Subsidiaries can't actually pay off the debts of the parent company in that way. He is full of crap.
 I could actually see that due to the improved ability to write or mark things up. I have a large wacom intuos tablet that doesn't get as much use these days. It doesn't lag like the cintiqs, which is nice. What I notice between the two is that finger motions are more awkward if they're detailed. I can do certain motions with a finger, but for anything with curvature there's a tendency to rotate from the shoulder with the finger held steady. I can rotate from the wrist...
The original post is a bit dramatic, but if they are cancelling it, they'll announce that with the next event. They did that with the Xserve. Basically they aren't going to remove the ability to buy one without some amount of notice, although it could be a short notice. I disagree with Marvin on this one. Haswell EP showed some improvements, and it contains a full line. Haswell and Broadwell use the same chipset, so a switch from Haswell->Broadwell should require minimal...
 That is correct, but you need support from the display, gpu, and software. The number of people who actually use it on Windows may not be that high due to the number of requirements. Apple has a greater degree of control there due to a more limited array of hardware. They haven't shown any interest in supporting it.
  Quote:I was aware of the HTML5 output. I wasn't referring to the software package as much as the content people think of as flash, eg anything that still plays in a shockwave player. I did not know about those new features. They're quite interesting. I thought Adobe would just leave it in maintenance mode as part of CC.Firewire had faster and more uniform speeds, better stability, and it imposed a lower cpu overhead.
