    Editing to the Beat in iMovie '09
  • Hi all, Thank you for pointing these errors out. I know how frustrating this kind of thing can be for readers, and you have my sincere apologies for not proofreading this article before posting it. I am having childcare issues that have prevented me from doing my job consistently over the past week. I have gone through and proofed the article and fixed these problems. Better late than never, but again, sorry for having to make you work so hard to get at Bakari's meaning. Cheers.
  • Thanks for participating, everyone. The winner is breuklen with 3 direct hits at the truth! As promised, we'll send you a CandyShell case and set up an interview with you.
  • Ok, ok you've all had fun critiquing the site's grammar, and I have to agree. I'm the new editor, and I've been brought in to turn the site's articles into better English. One of my tasks will be going through all of the history articles and proofreading them and fact checking them. But seriously, if any of you know something is off timewise, let me know. Thanks for the feedback. Meiera

  • Sure flargh, although the original Macworld magazines were all caps back in the day but I'll do my best in the future to write Macworld and not MacWorld! Since you must be from Macworld what do you think about what may be coming at WWDC?

    What To Expect from WWDC
  • First off, Chris, great piece...here are my thoughts. I am a diehard Safari user. I rarely, if ever, notice Beachballs, and I use Safari on multiple machines. I also very very rarely come across a site that doesn't work in Safari and when I do Camino is there for me. I haven't checked out FireFox 3 in depth but I've always felt like FireFox isn't a Mac program. When I have to use another browser I typically go to Camino, which at least feels like a Mac application. The main reason I prefer Safari, however, is the main reason I prefer Macs. It is minimal, fast, and, at least for me stable.

    Firefox 3 Kills Safari
  • I still don't regret waiting in line for 15 hours with Gregory Ng. The original iPhone only came around once.

    The iPhone 3G is great, but Is It "Lineworthy" Good?
  • Great thoughts everyone, here is what I think. Make the Apple TV free with a movie subscription contract (kind of like the cellphone market model). So, I can get an Apple TV if I pay 20 bucks a month, which gives me access to, say 5 movie rentals. In addition the AppleTV needs a DVR capability, I have too many boxes already!

    Come on Steve, at WWDC Make the Apple TV Great
  • Great piece, Chris. Personally I'm really really hoping for multi-touch. I'd also like Apple to keep focussed on keeping the operating system as fast as possible. Leopard is a quantum leap ahead of Tiger, but it would be great to see continued improvements.

  • For the record, this is an example of Chris Seibold's wacky sense of humor. I do not live in a 57,000 mansion nor do I have staff!

    Undooming the Apple TV
  • First of all welcome back, Chris! All you readers may not know this but Chris just finished writing a book for O'Reilly, Apple Hacks, which you are hereby ordered to buy now, enjoy and rate appropriately on Amazon, Book here. Now onto the issue. Regardless of the busy savvy of making a move I too would like to see a so-called sub-Mac-Pro. I want a machine that I can open up, add some hard-drives too and tinker with. But I do think Apple is not going to create this type of machine. I think Steve's view is either you are a Pro who needs the fastest hard drive connections, video cards, expandability, etc or you are a just a consumer user who needs something that works. The notion of a prosumer machine is interesting but my guess is Apple doesn't care to understand that market. In the spirit of Mac users who like to Hack it is getting tougher and tougher these days. The Mac Pros are just too expensive and opening up a Mac mini requires a freakin' putty knife!

    The Non Existent Glaring Hole in the Mac Lineup
  • Jan, The problem with that is that Blu-Ray is really picking up steam and Apple needs to match the best quality out there. People are spending a lot of money on their high-def TVs and spending another 300 bucks on an Apple TV which doesn't make the most use of the TV won't be convincing in the marketplace. Robomac, Thanks very much for the details on resolution. If the Apple TV is 1080p capable why not make it available for people like me who have FIOS? Diogenis, thanks for the European perspective. I'm from Canada originally so I know too well the frustrations of having to wait for technology to move beyond the US. Not sure what the solution is there though.
