Fsckin’ finally! Better ridiculously late than never, we guess.

  1. Yup…that’s not much of a video…Is it supposed to show 3D? or group integration or uh….what exactly?

    I want to see something I haven’t seen before that makes me wonder…”How’d they do that?”
    and THEN I find out it’s done with a new function in the software…

    Maybe all the innovation is gone at Adobe and swallowing Macromedia simply took too much for them to create something truly new.

  2. That video is rubbish. If you’re not going to show off the product then you can at least be cool or novel. That thing is just a load of people chucking some boxes around again and again, and again, and again, and so on.

  3. “MacDailyNews Take: Fsckin’ finally! Better ridiculously late than never, we guess.”

    What was the big dilemma? Oh yes, forgot. You guys all went out and dumped your PowerPC macs overnight and got stuck with the first generation Wintel, err – Mactel “solution” from Apple. Your Photoshop speeds suck, but hey, you can run Windows! Yippee! Of course you’ve only spent the last year and half talking about how great of a deal it was to move over to Intel chips and how great things are with Boot Camp and the ability to finally get fully Microsuck on your macs. Despite the extra cores, other than ripping a CD or launching a handful of specific tasks, the dual-core G5s in our office continue to outperform and outproduce the Intel MacPros. Yeah, its all Rosetta, right? Performance per watt. Keep drinking the Kool Aid. Give it about 3 more generations of Intel chips and you’ll finally be there – kind of like the folks who got duped into buying the Core Duo only to find that it was just a test chip for the Core 2 Duo. Soon to be the Core 2 Duo 2 probably.

    Better ridiculously late than never, I guess.

  4. So, is CS3 just a glow in the dark box?

    I wanted UB versions of Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator, and all they’ve been working on is a glow in the dark box!

    No wonder it took them so long…

  5. The cubes are computer pixels. That’s a good idea.
    But they are throwing them around for too long.

    Apple should go ahead an raise the price of the Mac Pro. Now that everybody will be ordering it it would be a good way to avoid demand outstripping supply.
