That's dumb ... why nuke your brain and body with wireless radiation, when you have no need to.
Because he’s not suffering from paranoid delusions.
As more time passes, I become more and more frustrated with Adobe and think your suggestion that Apple purchase them makes sense. It would be an excellent strategic acquisition for Apple, in software names (PhotoShop, Premiere, etc.) and IP. Those could be migrated to (or at least optimized for) Mac-Only platforms to drive yet more business to the hardware side. Further, it could diversify their software portfolio and provide revenue from the PC platform, if they were inclined to keep it. I think the price tag might be larger than they are normally interested in, but I'd rather they spend it there than line Icahn's pockets with stock buybacks/manipulations.
For my dollar -- I'd rather have discontinued FreeHand than illustrator -- it's still awful and cumbersome.
Buying Premiere or any of the other apps would be a premium from offerings that are relatively as good. Aperture is only an update behind Light Room (OK, Apple looks like they've been distracted for a couple years).
Their desktop publishing apps are good. Apple's Pages is "OK" but useful for a mass market of non-pro designers.
But really, the mindshare of Adobe is greater than it's economic share. As a for-profit company, it's hard to think of an acquisition making more money than just spending the same money on developing the next-gen creative device.
Adobe has solid products even if they aren't optimized for the Mac anymore -- but they don't have a future growth potential that would make business sense for an outfit like Apple.
Maybe the side-effect of the radio waves is to make people docile and non-paranoid!
Funny though, with how the economy has treated me, $3000 for a computer was MORE affordable in 1993 than it is now in 2014.
FreeHand was a wonderful app --- and Adobe purchased it and then killed it. Off topic - I know - but I am still angry about that.
Yeah, but where else are you going to find sympathy for a Freehand rant!
I still can't get used to how Illustrator forces you to select the whole object or every dang point in the object. It's a total PIA for masked shapes and anything of complexity. FreeHand was much better at selection, masking and embedding. And a bit faster unless you looked at things in full preview or "flash" mode -- but still faster for anything very complex. If I could only get the last version released, I'd take that over modern illustrator any day. Like using Microsoft Office in 2005 is so much more productive than Microsoft Office with that Ribbon interface!
>> OK, this was all completely off topic. But the Ribbon came from the depths of Hades with it's evil devil baby the Metro interface!!!
YES. I’ve always loved that theory.
Wi-Fi DOES send out radiation detectable by humans, but the only effect of the radiation is to make those affected believe that the radiation is harmful. " src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />
The D500s do not trigger the internal fan profile unless under extreme load. The thermal design is good enough to deal with pretty much anything on both these machines; I couldn't even get it to spin up to 5,000 RPMs (which would be pretty fast for a fan this size). Basically, it's just as quiet as the D300s. Putting my hand over the top vent, the D500 Pro blew hotter air under load, but not substantially.
From what I understand, one card is normally tasked with powering the Sharp 4K, which leaves a single GPU to handle computation. With the additional processing headroom, it takes more for the D500 to start swapping tasks back to the first card tiling the 4K display than the same operation on the D300. Two compute cards run hotter than one and a half or so. My theory is that, despite the slightly hotter baseline operating temp, the net heat from both cards when running a 4K display is actually cooler for the D500 under heavy load.
Thanks Flan....When I read Robin's post reaching out for any thread of contact. For some reason, it really pulled at my heart strings.
It may sound silly, but I remember seeing Relic's posts and although I had no direct contact with her, I felt a connection.
Yep, sounds silly!
That is great if you have the money to buy it.
Same here - I remember paying USD 3900 for an Apple IIGS, and a similar amount for my Quadra 605 in mid-90s...
Yeah same here $3500 for Quadra 840av!
But you know I think some people are not seeing what Apple really did for some people out there:
They made another really cool product for us to buy that is also useful and can make money in return.
The classic rule:
