[David Roth Weiss] "However, to suggest that users created the drama is just patently false. Yes, users are continuing to react to the drama Apple created, but given that many businesses have been "dramatically" impacted by Apple's move,..."

We cannot always control how we are impacted by life, but we can control (if we are aware) how we respond or react to that impact. This is the root of personal responsibility and freedom.

Apple created an impact (as any major change would), but did not create any drama, because the drama you speak of is in the response of (some) users. Human response is stimulus-based not causal; otherwise we would all react the same way, and we obviously don't.

Another major piece of this is the ability to remember history (in this case, the historical updake of new editing and graphics tools reaching back to the advent of the Moviola). To the extent that our thinking becomes a-historical, we lose perspective, and lose control over our response-ability.
