We Are Pulling For You, Apple!

Apple is finally giving video people something to get excited about. With Avid and Adobe releasing some great products in the past year, I wondered if we were getting left in the dust.

The new Macbook Pro has some great improvements including a much better battery and a superfast port (12x faster than firewire 800!) called ThunderBolt. You can read about the laptop at BHPhoto. The other news that is out (not officially, mind you) is that a new version of Final Cut Studio will be out in the next couple of months and there are apparently some major improvements/additions. Although there is much speculation right now about what those are, we will wait and see before lending credibility to any of the rumors. Suffice it to say that it should be good--and it better be good if Apple wants to stay competitive in the professional video market. Here's hoping!
