    This is news? Hell, much of the recession can be attributed to this.

    lol

    And we've been editing home videos for how long on 1/4 of the clock speed.

    SJ was right when he brought out the digital hub concept. That's what people want.

    Until I get realtime, high res radiosity rendering, I'm not going to be satisfied with the speed of my computer. I don't plan on seeing this for a decade or more, maybe even longer.

    But what also might happen is that the pro user and cosumer versions will shift in development - you'll get a much cheaper consumer machine and the pro versions will stay in the higher $2k+ range.

    Macs and the digital hub are the future - always good to be on the forefront there.

    D :D
