    Another Appleite (or are they called Jobsonians?) has checked in. And they are pushing their own Final Cut because they have enough issues with Adobe and their CS5 (soon to be CS5.5). Here is part of the description: "Final Cut Pro 7 gives you more creative options and technical control" but with the subliminal message of "creative options and technical control that we tell you must have and nothing more!"

    Hear, hear! The game industry should not tolerate their behaviour against game developers.

    Well, Adobe is over the top with activation and bugs not fixed issues, especially with Photoshop Elements,

    CS-5.5 products can now be purchased on a subscription basis, so it probably is time to jump ship. All this "cloud" BS is nice for the dull of wit, but now they're trying to force it on us. This would mean every time you crank up "Premier Pro", (or other CS program), Adobe would have their corporate nose up your private a**. (Actually they already do, with , FNP licensing service, and Adobe updater). (The only thing "Adobe Updater" tried to update recently was itself. I don't know about you, but I call that "Spyware")!

    I'm standing pat at PSCS-4, PSE-7, (which is a slow flushing turd, at least when you have a very large photo collection), and good old serial number only activated PSE-5.

    I don't share any of the addictions to either gaming, or to having the "latest and greatest" of anything, that so many here seem to "possess". So, Adobe is evil, our guest was right about that. But still, that hardly makes Apple a worthwhile alternative.

    This is why the two companies are warring; they're both parasites, and it's like fleas and ticks fighting for control of the dog.

    I still think this poll needed a "select all" button, to truly validate it.

    No Route, we call them iSheeps, beside it fits nicely with the 'i' they have going with every thing ;)

    I am sure you realize that you are (indirectly) 'validating' my arugment that 'un-checked economic freedom' (i.e. capitalism) is the real evil which unfortunately people are failing to understand until it is too late.

    OK, "iSheep" is granted cute. But at least consider my suggestion, which I firmly believe is much more of what they have going on, that would be, "iHoles". This melds nicely with, "AppHoles", in case you want to give the brand a quick "plug" Or, "plugging", if you prefer to write in the present progressive tense.
    Actually, capitalism is only the motivating evil. "Consumerism" is the real "imbecile" factory. What people don't understand is that,"currency" was developed to augment or supersede the barter system. They further don't understand that an "information" based economy is not really possible. The bottom line is you can't eat the s*** you know. Nor is a "service based economy". Here, if you have a dozen people wiping the a** in front of them, expecting to be paid for it, somebody's gonna be SOL, because there's no food entering into the chain here either.

    So, a "post modern economy" requires that there be available a cheap source of labor, and people that are still willing to grow something, make something, or dig something out of the ground, for very little money.

    After the Chinese workers become affluent, there's no place on the planet that will fill these requirements, save for perhaps Sub-Saharan Africa. So what I envision, (or perhaps hope for), is when there's nobody growing food, or making goods, most of these dumb SOBs, will die out when they can no longer find a place that still does take out on their stinking iPhones.

    That pretty much sums it all, but fools like GWB / BHO (in fact the list starts with Reagon and end with BHO) who are bread by the advocates of this evil can't seem to grasp this fact.

    By the way, don't you think 'iHoles' may get us into trouble with the site moderators or gays?

    Well, the mods maybe, but the gays not so much. Besides, I wonder if they're even reading this crap. I figure they're either out looking for a state that will let them get married, or taking advantage of their season ticket box seats to, "Les Miserables". (Or should I say "Les Miz")? They more gifted ones are probably on Broadway trying to write the successor to "Cats", while many others are trying to adopt the child most likely to grow up to be the new Cole Porter.

    Gee, I hope that doesn't get me into trouble. Although, I should probably take those jokes to the producers of, "Modern Family", (ABC Wed. 9:00 PM EDT) since that's the general demeanor of the show.
