    Good lord:

    you hit the nail directly on the head, could not have said it better.

    M100 started listening late, hence 844 interface, I suppose they will survive but to what extent.

    Put 'em on different floors next year. That was obnoxious.
    Apple showed class by not crankin' it louder. Good going guys. [img]/2pop/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    I enjoyed it when NAB had ended and in the AJA booth, our guy
    played Hava Nagila on the bagpipes.

    Now that was loud! [img]/2pop/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    If they get into those wars again--then look out. The Pongi Army may have to interdict!




    The Pongi Army means business!

    I sat down to listen to Apple talk about FCP HD on Monday. A few minutes after the speaker started his presentation, we heard yelling behind us. It sounded like somebody was badly hurt (which might be the case?), and then of course it was an obnoxious Avid guy trying to get attention. Apple remained calm, and did not turn up the volume. Funny but mostly irritating.

    I wasn't there, but a friend who did observe it said Apple put up a title on a demo saying "Avid sucks" and they aimed their speakers toward the Avid booth. I'm a big Mac and Avid fan, but I believe there was a book written a few years ago called "The Death of Civility." Maybe those in charge of exhibits should be made to read it before next year's convention. This sounds like something politicians would do, not all of us totally gentlemanly movie dudes....

    NAB = National Association of Boneheads

    I have never attended NAB and I don't think I ever will.

    LOL- that's pretty harsh. You should go some time- lots of free schwag and you'll get to play with all of the toys and technology that the next year or so has in store. It's a bit ludicrous to be serious about any aspect of post-production and not be at all interested in NAB.

    I witnessed it as well but thought it was like being on a casino floor. [img]/2pop/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] It was so loud. I took off for another area. [img]/2pop/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I take back what I said about "class". I think that that gaffe may have been worse than the volume issue. What an idiot that guy was to put that title up. He should be court martialed--Apple style. [img]/2pop/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]



    Bring back the "classy" America!
