This video was the first one in its genre that made me grin. Very good produced.







I think you have to login to YouTube to be able to watch it.

can we rename this sub forum into "I hate Apple" forum so
I never go here again?

This is really getting old and pointless guys, if you really hate apple that
much just go to some other forums or blogs and troll there like rest
of the guys...

This wasn't personal at all and video is actually really nicely done but
its so old and I think everybody seen it million times...

Best regards...

I think you've figured that out already, so if you are really offended, why don't you just "never go here again?"

The rest of us actually enjoy satire.

People have seen it a million times, but not in the current context, which gives it new life. I think it's quite funny.

And the just released "Magnetic Wheel" prevents "keyboard collisions" - those times when 2 fingers try to strike the same key at the same time. With the "Magnetic Wheel" your fingers automatically slide sway from each other, one ending up in your nose, the other in a nether region.

Hi Tomislav,

I'm sorry you couldn't appreciate my post. That can happen.
I liked that YouTube clip a lot.
And I am definitely no Apple/FCPX hater.
I am very enthusiastic about FCPX, although there are still some things I would like to see implemented and supported. I have a bunch of equipment that is still useless for using with FCPX.
But I still have FCP 7 and that's working for me. Meanwhile I am discovering FCPX and Motion 5 and I really like what I see. When I think I can add something positive to the discussion or when I think I can help someone out with a problem regarding FCPX or Motion I will do so.
As a matter of fact I am a lot of the time astonished by all the emotional pro and contra posts on several FCP related fora. And there are a lot of times that I felt the urge to put in my 2 cents. Fortunately I know myself that well that commenting in a different language than my native language (Dutch, sometimes double Dutch) can take more time than I would like to. I want to choose my words carefully because I don't like to offend people. That is why counting to ten helps me to think twice before I post.

I think we will have a great time with this new software.
It is as with having kids. It was a big miracle when they were born, they certainly have had their quirks now and then (and so did I) but now two of them are adults and the third almost and all the time the miracle grew bigger as they did. I have enjoyed every single step along the way.
I hope to see FCPX growing up just as FCP did but it will definitely have a different character.

I also like a good laugh every now and then and I hoped to share that by posting the video.
So for everyone that feels adressed, Pro or Contra, PC or Apple, Avid, Premiere Pro, FCP, FCPX or whatever:
Do yourself a big favor and lighten up, life is too short to get angry too much.

Ok, that is of my chest. I will probably not be posting again in this thread, beacause "Less is More" and the wheel was in fact invented a long time ago, so bottom line we are always dealing with outdated principles :-) and you can write a good book on toilet paper as long as you know how to hold a pen and know how to write a good book.

Kind regards,

If you're looking for a happy warm place that offers unrestricted praise for all things Apple you should hang out at the Apple store.

Tomislav,

May I suggest that you stick to the subject, which is FCP X, and quit all of your writing and whining about other Cow members and their feelings and thoughts.

You're free to say whatever you want about FCP X, and you need to respect the right of others to be free express themselves. Resist the temptation to direct what others say. That's really the problem here.

So... will FCX support the wheel natively or are we going to have to wait for 3rd party support???

This is one of my favorite Onion videos of all time. I shared it and laughed, and then of course they released they iPad, and did exactly this with great results.

The tag line is the best though, "It remains to be seen if the Wheel will catch on in the business world, where people use computers for actual work."

Great laugh to start my day with. Thanks for posting. A very clever piece of satire that will probably make some folks a little uncomfortable.
