Recent news suggests that the Aperture and iPhoto "replacement" will have some kind of plug-in support, I have read "third party extensibility", which might actually open the door to it, with some good add-ons, becoming a valid tool. Time will tell.
Personally I'll have to balance the perhaps not-so-nice, and not-immediately-powerful-enough new photo app from Apple against the licensing and general barf-ness of Adobe's software. I'm really looking forward to that. Not.If you force developers to use a language nobody else uses (and outside Apple nobody uses Objective-C, and now Apple would like to replace it with the new Swift too) ...
While a more in-depth discussion could be had, it's a bit too off-topic here.
I am quite shocked as to how many people actually care that Aperture isn't going to be supported anymore. I don't use Aperture, I use Lightroom on the Mac and until a few minutes ago, I didn't know anyone who used Aperture. My understanding is that Aperture hasn't seen an update in quite a while so I guess my question is, why be all upset at Apple now? If you were using Aperture and liked it, keep using it till you can't anymore then migrate.The people like me who were holding out on Aperture were waiting for "Aperture X", i.e. a complete overhaul of the application like Final Cut Pro and Logic received. Seems that we have to change to Lightroom after all.
How is Lightroom on the Mac anyhow? From some years back I remember Adobe software being really crappy Carbon-based legacy-ware, many bugs, slow, unintuitive. Is Adobe software from today state-of-the-art 64-bit Cocoa? With good usability?
Apparently new iPhones will come without a headphone jack – there will be headphones using the lightening connector or Bluetooth only.
