"In a somewhat surprising move from the folks in Cupertino, non-linear editors and filmmakers can once again purchase Apple's now-outdated Final Cut Studio through the company's telesales number."
Well this should make many people happy, and it is nice to see that Apple is listening to complaints from their users. This was discontinued when Apple came out with Final Cut Pro X, and led to a number of complaints from some users of Final Cut Pro, mainly about missing elements they were used to with Final Cut Studio. To be fair, it was a ground up redesign of the product, and from what I've read, was a first step in a process that would have eventually had all the elements restored. But to quell the frustration of those that were unhappy, Apple has done the right thing. You can order it via phone only by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE and use part number MB642Z/A. Seems like this will be a temporary fix but a fix nonetheless. What are your thoughts?
