Apple Updates Final Cut Pro X, Among Other Things

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 02:00 AM

http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/31/...inal-cut-pro-x/

"The X version of Final Cut Pro was supposed to be all things to all people -- easier and more power for the serious amateurs and yet refreshing and comprehensive for the pros. In reality it seemed that neither camp quite saw it that way, but Apple has at least been listening."

Lots of updates that will hopefully appease those that weren't too happy with this when it was initially released. I've never used it but from some of the feedback I've read, it certainly does look like Apple was listening to and addressed the concerns. Well, at least some of them. And this wasn't the only update released, as they also released some updates for Time Capsule and Airport Extreme. You can get more info from Apple on the updates from their support page here.

Google VP Recommends Apple For Routers

"What if you had degrees in symbolic systems and computer science from Stanford University? And what if you were one of Google's first 20 employees? What home router would you get?"

She decided on an Airport Extreme base station and a couple of Airport Express devices for her home network. Sounds like good advice to me, especially since that is what I use at home. What are your thoughts?

How is Your Time Capsule/Airport Extreme Treating You?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 08:00 AM

http://www.appleinsider.com/article...me_capsule.html

"Users of Apple's latest Airport Extreme Base Station and Time Capsule hardware, released in October 2009, have reported instability and significant reductions in speed when using the routers at the 5GHz wireless band."

I've been pretty lucky with my Airport Extreme and my 1TB Time Capsule I guess, since I haven't experienced any of the problems they talk about in this discussion forum at Apple. Among the problems are slow speeds and dropped connections, with one forum participant having turned in four Airport Extremes and working on his 5th! Any of you experiencing these problems?

MobileMe File Sharing with Airport Extreme and Time Capsule

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 12:00 PM

http://www.appleinsider.com/article...ng_support.html

"New versions of Apple's wireless base stations supporting USB shared hard drives -- AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule -- have gained remote file sharing features via MobileMe. A firmware update is also expected to extend the feature to previous-generation models."

This is supposed to be extended to existing Airport Extremes and Time Capsules (thank you!) with an upcoming firmware update. I wish there was some way they could do that for the ability to run parallel guest networks and to operate both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHZ networks at once. Those apparently are hardware based upgrades, not much a firmware upgrade will do to fix that unfortunately. .


Apple Updates Almost Everything; Settles Rumor Mill Down

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple News" @ 08:00 AM

Well, suprisingly, the rumor mill did very well. While they didn't get the timing right, they definitely got the updates right. Apple refreshed a bunch of hardware yesterday, and here are a few of the highlights.

The New iMacs

The new iMacs are a solid deal. The 20" inch model is nicely priced now at $1,199 and the 24" monster is perfect for power users at $2,199. While I'm not convinced there's a big market for desktop computers any more, if you are a Mac user and want some oomph on your desk, this is the place to get it. Another notable is that even the base configuration now has 2 gigs, and most of the desktops have 4. That's definitely in preparation for Snow Leopard.e

Cosmetically, nothing's changed aside from the keyboard, which is utterly baffling to me. Apple seems to be phasing out numeric keypads, now, and even the wired one now doesn't have a numeric keypad. I wanted the Bluetooth wireless keyboard really badly for my MBP so I sucked it up and tolerated the fact that it didn't have the keypad, but I just don't get this move at all. In some ways, this adds fuel to the fire of people who hate Apple and their "our way or the highway" approach to computer design.
