    Oh, this really excites me. Other than non-destructive editing, little to nothing sets iPhoto and Aperture apart anymore.  Then there's .mac replaced by iCloud PhotoStream. Which has zero organizational abilities -- post two pics that were taken back to back and they display several photos apart in an album. No, perhaps .mac was replaced by iCloud Journals. Must make sense, its iOS only. No, iPad with iPhoto only. No again, won't run on iOS 5 which is all iPad 1's can run on. 


    Apple's suite for photographers is a joke. It's mind boggling how many good ideas there are and how Apple has managed to mess them up with no unifying vision.
