Is Blueman Group going to start playing on Apple- shaped drums? They'll
surely be shown on the video iPod. I can see them being highlighted on
a Mac ad for their latest release. Geez, how weird.
Steve Jobs says that the master plan for months now has been developing
software that can be easily or seamlessly modified for the PC
environment. They've been lopping iTunes software all over the Windows
PCs. I'm sure Safari, Aperture, iMovie/iDVD, and widgets can be
modified in little time to the Microsoft- type PC.
I have a Mac PowerBook G4 from 2004 and, hey look.... The release of
the Aperture software can't be used on this laptop, or lots of other
Macs (all G4 desktops and forget about the G3s, may they rest in peace)
already. We haven't even hit 2006 yet. Aperture should give Mac users a
The software they are developing now need a mighty strong processor and
they'll need more memory and disk space to boot. So with this in mind,
how can the hardware they plan to develop be cheaper than the stuff
that's slower and more affordable already? We can think that the later
hardware will be cheaper, but they also said that CDs would be cheaper
than LPs because they cost less to produce, too? My bosses considered
buying Aperture to finish off use of Photoshop and Photo Mechanic, for
instance, but we'd have to buy much faster hardware.
With all being sad, (I misspelled said, but will leave it) I feel that
Jobs has to take the Mac hardware in a new direction, b/c businesses
are about earning these days. The modest will be consumed by the
strong, eventually. Jobs has a master plan, and I'm still willing to
wait and see what he has already mapped out.
One thing's for sure: Blue Man Group will be the true winners through
all of this.
