A few reasons:

5) Apple needs to maintain a strong presence in the high end photography/cinematography business in order to keep attracting customers to its higher end computing products (such as Mac Pro, Aperture, Final Cut X).

They scared a lot of customers away with their FCP X debacle and their xsan server customers were dumped too.

Maybe so but they likely gained other customers that never would have previously given the software a chance. With plenty of requested features added FCP X is not the same app as when it was introduced.

More money in disposable phones and things you don't really need.

I have gotten more use out of my iPad than I have ever gotten out of any computer. Second to that is my iMac which is also a joy to use. My older 2008 iMac is still going strong.

Your thoughts?

cults worry me.

What's worrying is those that accuse people of being in a cult because they buy and enjoy a certain piece of electronics
