Yes, but will he get $5000 for an old G4?Xephian said:He can atleast sell is old G4 instead of blowing it up. I saw this at Macnn.com too.
I wouldn't call him a scam artist. The guy is doing exactly what he says he's doing. He's soliciting for money. No scam there. Not necessarily hard-working, but not samming either.RndmAxess said:Another lazy scam artist making money from a bunch of stupid fools.
The guy should learn how to use his video camera first. It's all muddy and underexposed.
Then maybe he can actually earn the money to buy his G5.
And, after all what's wrong with getting a job? Hell, maybe he should just sell pirate software to college kids on CL.
Can't really argue with that theory. I think what he is doing is actually quite smart. He knows there are a ton of people who lounge around on the internet all day looking for crap like this to waste money on, and it has been successful for thousands of other 'scams', why should he not try?stridey said:I wouldn't call him a scam artist.

Luckily he will be able to do the upgrade since he is a past purchaser. I'll donate a quarter, I want to see this thing blow up.7on said:For all the people "griping" about his video skills... notice that he's in the video and not shooting it? That could be the reason why. And I certainly wouldn't pay anyone for camera work on this project. I think the post-editing is pretty good and if I had enough ambition, I'd do the same thing.
He's definitely not in the Web Design business...
And looking at his current donations+money for selling the G4 he can already get a low-end G5.
It's not like he can't buy a G5, but look at all the software he must buy as well when he gets a G5... FCP5 runs pretty high on the monetary value.
