Apple's Final Cut is dead.

some highlights:

Apple now offers something called Final Cut Pro X (pronounced “10”). But don’t be misled by the name. It’s a new program, written from scratch…

The bottom line: The rewritten Final Cut is much, much easier to use than the old one, and its immediacy keeps your creative flow going.

But not everyone will fall in love. Switching to the new Final Cut from the old one is like coming home from college to discover that your parents remodeled your bedroom…

The biggest disappointment is that Final Cut X can’t open old Final Cut projects. They’re now orphaned, stuck forever in the old program.

after almost 3.5 yrs, my old Vaio is on the verge of death. so i ordered this one the other day, and just spent an inordinate amount of time customizing it to my liking - and now, i am happily tired. can’t wait to finish watching the director’s cut of The New World on this, in all its widescreen glory.

nope, i’m still not ready to turn to the dark side that is Macs.

got this 640 gb portable external hard drive (it’s just a bit thicker than the iphone and so light!) yesterday for a whopping $59. nerdgasm!
