Apple Well, this just got interesting. There's been a bit of a backlash over Apple's Final Cut X Pro, which is considered a step down from previous versions by many professional videographers, as they claim it lacks countless features - leading to the nickname 'iMovie Pro'. Former Shake product designer and former Apple employee Ron Brinkmann has now weighed in on the situation. His advice to professionals? Don't rely on companies like Apple.

Mac: The greatest computer ever, that can be comfortably used only in dimly light rooms.

OSX: The greatest OS ever, that doesn't run games and is not so good for most types of serious work.

iPhone: The greatest phone ever, that is not so good for making and receiving calls and is too fragile to survive a day in normal use without a protective case.

iPad: The greatest device to experience the Internet and digital media, that doesn't support most common types of video, audio, images, ebooks, documents, archives or know what a file is.

It appears that "Final Cut PRO X" is finally becoming a true Apple product: A video editing applications for professionals, that is completely unsuitable for professionals.
