Creative Cloud protest petition
Not everyone who has signed up to CC has done so willingly. With limited time discount offers, Adobe has effectively forced many customers into signing up now - against their will - rather than risk getting left behind with outdated software. Many subscribers would, I'm sure, leap at the chance to return to boxed products, if only Adobe would reinstate them. This debacle only reinforces the case for customers to be given that option.
There's an online petition here, in case anyone wants to add their voice:
Website value assessment & EU cookie law
It will be even harder for them to assess the value of those sites once they implement the spectacularly stupid EU cookie law that "we" agreed to!
"it's not what you'd call polished."
Definitely not. It's what I'd call bug ugly.
What part of "Apple stuff needs to look cool" don't they understand?
It's neither a triumph of functionality (lack of USB hub, messy power connection), nor a must-have piece of Apple eye candy. So it fails on function AND design. Quite some achievement.
Roll on version 2.
Nearly halved? Did you FAIL maths?
Last time I checked, a change in forecast from 8% to 5% represents a reduction of 37.5%.
That's much closer to a THIRD than it is to HALF.
Blatant exaggeration is irresponsible, not to mention unprofessional. No wonder everyone's obsessed with doom and gloom.
I'd suggest keeping to the facts if you wish to retain any kind of credibility.
So when is the previously unheard of "iPad to" coming out? And what are the specs?
60D in perspective
Don't get your knickers in a twist over price - the costs quoted in this (belated) review are HUGELY over-inflated. Amazon is currently selling the 60D for £771 (body only) or £902 (body + 18-55mm). It can also be found MUCH cheaper elsewhere (I got mine from HK with 18-55mm, 55-250mm AND a spare battery all for under £810).
I spent a long time obsessively comparing 60D vs 7D vs Nikon D7000, reading countless reviews and opinions and handling each in shops.
In my opinion, when you consider this camera's FULL spec (and I mean REALLY consider it), the 60D offers a great combination of features for amateur enthusiasts at a very reasonable price. The build quality is also perfectly robust and solid. I actually don't think this reviewer's score does the 60D sufficient justice.
