Desert property for sale
on Jun 21, 2011 at 11:00:47 pm

For all of you keen to rush out to invest your money in a product that delivers little now, but promises to be the way of the future, I have some beautiful desert property that will one day be as lush and green as any oasis you've ever seen.

Even now, if you simply close your eyes and dream, or, if you time your visit just right and get there right at magic hour, you'll be able to envision exactly what I'm going to do with all this sand to turn it into a land of dreams.

For just $299 apiece, each and every one of you can own a piece of the dream; all you have to do is believe now, and it will all come true someday in the future.

BTW, please don't ask when we'll be making the desert dream come true, because there are "business law obligations" that prevent us from talking about timelines. You have to defer the revenue tied to the value of those promised features until the feature is delivered. It's a pain to put a price tag on individual features, and we are NOT about delayed cash-flow.

So, who's in???

David,
I don't know how is the App Store Return policy, but I gonna ask my money back tomorrow.
This "stuff" is less controllable and customizable than never.
The only thing I've see improved is the VideoScope.
And what about the filters? Are they joking?
Tomorrow I'll reinstall FC7.

Hello,

I'm interested in Desert Pro(perty) X.

Please clarify a few questions about your product:
1) Will Desert Pro X let me export my crops using any vehicle, or am I restricted to a bobby car?
2) Will the Desert be usable by people with absolutely no experience in agriculture, eg my grandma?
3) Will the Desert be linked to my name so that I won't be able to resell the desert if I decide not to use it anymore?
4) Am I prohibited from using industry-standard methods to plant the desert with seeds?
5) Am I prohibited from replanting growth from other deserts on my desert?

Questions are verboten. The future is based entire upon belief and faith-based capitalism. Now, show me the money.

Are you now out?

Change is inevitable Scott,

As our former Secretary of Defense once said, "There are knowns, and there are unknowns, and there are known unknowns and unknown unknowns. Apple is selling the later for $300 and getting people to buy a product on blind faith that doesn't seem to do what we really need.

I don't shell out money to buy unknowns. If Apple declares its hand and explains what they're actually selling the public for $300, that might change my opinion. Until then, I'm waiting on the sidelines.

My gut feeling told me, it had to be 'Donald Rumsfield'. Googled it & there it was! Never liked that joker, only he could make such statements.

Btw: David, are you telling me you have not bought a copy of FCP X today?

Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that it will happen." -- Carl Ally

He is pretty slimy.

It won't run on my current ATI graphics card and so I have not bought a copy. My good friend and cameraman has it up and running though.

So I've been quiet today after the same experience on 2008 MacPro. Interesting but it looks like it'll install on my 2010 MacMini.

So when I walk the client past my MacPro to my MacMini to edit and they ask:
"Why are you taking us to the MacMini to edit when you have an 8 Core MacPro?"
I respond:
"Everyone knows a 2010 Toyota blows away a 2008 Mercedes Benz."

Ordered my Radeon 5770 overnight delivery.

And does this mean you'll be making any revisions to that 'seamless transition' tutorial?


Based on what I'm-a-hearing,
I would need a new GPU, several beers and a lot more positive endorsements before I go- a-transitioning...

What Apple have given us is even more reason to install FCP X on a new partition; you can wipe it clean much more easily and simply move on to the next app.

Wise advice my friend!
OK, I can't blame you for being an optimist. But I had to bust your chops a little on the sky is falling thing.
All kidding aside, I was getting corn-fused trying to figure out your position on this for a while.

I've been confused and I'm finding Apple's handling of this entire episode more confusing the longer it they allow it to go on with any damage control. All along I kept saying Randy Ubilos and his team were really smart, but I'm seriously beginning to wonder now. Form the sneak all the way until now, they've shown that they are completely out of touch. They've never managed to fix the vast majority of the problems in FCP in the past, and they've clearly given up on that now.
