Apple Kills Aperture, Says New Photos App Will Replace It

terjeber Re:Check some Facts (214 comments)

What Hogan writes is pure rubbish. Serious photographers, even the ones using Adobe CC, knows full well that there is no such thing as The Cloud when it comes to professional photography. I am just a cheerful enthusiast who have longs since letting my 5D, 6D and GH4 blast though pictures. I try to make them, not fire and forget. Still, my Lightroom library is the neighborhood og 500GB these days. That's not going into the cloud and onto "all my devices.

Hogan should stop gulping down the cool aid and realize that Apple is slowly abandoning the market that once saved them, the creative professionals. Look at FCP. Look at Aperture. Creative professionals trusting their livelihood to Apple these days are suicidal nuts.Except for hardware of course. Apple knows hardware-

Apple Kills Aperture, Says New Photos App Will Replace It

terjeber Re:It is a trend (214 comments)

And yeah, Apple has never been particularly friendly towards the enterprise

They have not. What they used to be friendly towards was the creative professional though. With FCP X and now Aperture, they are stating loud and clear that they are no longer interested in supporting the creative professionals, but would rather cater to the mass-market dummy. That isn't a bad business decision as such. Clearly FCP X is easier to use than previous versions of FCP, and it is priced accordingly. It is also probably going to sell tons more than did the original FCP. Mass-market at the expense of the ones that used to keep Apple alive, the creative professional.

With this new Apple attitude,if you are a creative professional, investing in Apple hardware or software would seem moronic and (professionally) suicidal.

terjeber Re:Aperture-specific plugins... (214 comments)

my current problem is that I use "edit in Photoshop" occasionally for things Lightroom isn't that good at, and my copy of CS4 apparently doesn't support Nikon D610 raw format

When you "edit in" whatever it might be, Lightroom creates a TIFF file to edit, so RAW or no support for your camera is not an issue. You are covered, both on this issue and on the "cloud" issue.

I suggest you read the information about Photoshop CC again. Seriously. You are worried about something you need not worry about. That is, unless you're you "work in the field" with no internet connection for more than a month. Not a lot of us do.

Contrary to popular myth, the Adobe CC offering is a fantastic offering for most of Adobe's customers.

Just a slight correction: watching a movie at the theater will generally not give you better quality than Blu-Ray. In fact, when Bladerunner was released on BR it was probably the best quality it had ever been possible to watch it in.

terjeber Re:Screwed the Pooch (477 comments)

You are right. Mum and dad cares about quality. Kids these days do not. They are happy with "HD" streaming (or ripped) at such terrible quality it makes dads eyes bleed. The young can't tell the difference between 480p and 1080p. Well, FUCK YOU ALL! Now the rest of us are going to have to be content with that shitty quality too. Just because kids today are too lazy to care about quality. Sorry morons, streaming HD and ripped HD is not HD. Not even close!

It's not designed to do anything

Good point, bad wording, but it was in the context of the idea of a benevolent creator or a nicely designed place for us to be, believed in general by the people subscribing to the most common religions and also by many environuts of the "Gaia is sacred" kind.

Yes, but that is not what happened. We discovered there was a lot more sand that we hadn't discovered.

Which means you as an individual is not worth saving, but humanity as such, on a scale of millions, I'd say saving those is a worth while goal.

NASA Chief Tells the Critics of Exploration Plan: "Get Over It"

terjeber Re:How the west wasn't won (216 comments)

..glowing embers ... brought about by similar egos

There is hardly anything man can do to seriously damage this planet. Honestly, there isn't. We can do unpleasant things to our environment and we can make the planet uncomfortable for a little while. If we go insane and blast off all of our nuclear weapons some day we can do a decent bit of damage, but nothing like what nature has in store for us. In fact, let's assume someone could detonate all the nuclear weapons on earth at the same time, it would be like a firecracker compared to the K-T Extinction Impact. Since nuclear weapons would be detonated in an all-out war, it is unlikely that more than half would actually explode (the rest being rendered useless by actions of war). Detonating all nuclear weapons would come nowhere near what the K-T Extinction Impact was, and that isn't even that big of an explosion in nature.

Don't believe the 1950s propaganda. An all-out nuclear war will not kill everybody on the planet, probably not even half of the humans on it. It will not cause decades or centuries of unlivable conditions on the earth. Human kind would recover at a reasonable rate and probably thrive in a moderate amount of time. Some places would probably not be seriously affected at all.

Here is a funny factoid to think about - Hiroshima took a direct hit by a nuclear weapon. How long did it take before it was perfectly save to live in Hiroshima after the nuke hit? Answer: a couple of months. It was reasonably safe in the days after the explosion. No serious radiation damage was done to humans in the days and weeks following the explosion. Fetuses in the womb of their mothers during the explosion were adversely affected by radiation, but few or no noticeable radiation damages are known from babies conceived in the time after the bomb dropped.

If you want to imagine a big explosion, think of a Gamma Ray burst in our neighborhood. A decent sized star would release many times more energy in less than a second than our sun will release in its entire lifetime of about 10 billion years.

Compared to "mother nature" the most insane murderous human being ever lived was positively a nice guy/gal.

good old mother nature has been handing out mass extinctions like candy throughout the history of the planet without any help from people at all

This is one of the things I don't get with the enviro-nutters and Gaia lovers. They act as if mother nature is a nice old lady that only wants us, and our co-passengers on this space ship, to have a nice time of it. Even looking at Mother Earth (Gaia) on "her" own, describing her as benevolent is wildly inaccurate. A homicidal maniac is more like it. Super volcanoes, virus outbreaks and all of that stuff is all Gaia, and it's all designed to kill as many of us (and our co-passengers) as possible. We live on this planet, not because the good nature of Gaia but in spite of her homicidal nature.

Now add "the rest of the Universe" to "mother nature" and things go from bad to terrifying. Again, I've heard nutters both on the Gaia and the Jesus side of the fence extol the virtues of our universe and how it is specially designed to support us and our happy lives. Balderdash. Gaia and The Universe is spending an enormous amount of energy, inventiveness and "hatred" in trying to kill us all, while we fight them the best we can. Sadly, in the end, we'll lose no mater what we do. In the grand scheme of things "in the end" is not too far away. Looking forward to a gamma ray burst in our neighborhood one of these days? It'll make for one hell of a sun tan.

iPhone 4 - not in left hand please
