This is exciting news for WIndows tablets. They will actually be able to run Android apps via this new plugin:

So beyond the windows apps, you'll have the full gamut of Android apps available to you as well. Nice!

M Lammerse: I do own the ipad (3rd generation) and I bet it can't reach the hardware of the ipad by means of screen and battery life. But if you are not an apple junkie and you are more font of connectivity, compatibility and integration with your (Windows 8) PC - I think even this Windows tablet gives a better choice.

That this is a again written by an Appletologist (almost a scary Scientology level devotion) makes me wonder how much trust I have to put in this preview.

A couple of things: if you want to mention a huge number of apps, don't mention Apple but mention Android.
No it will of course not run IOS nor Android apps. But it will give you the freedom to install what you want and how you want it.

Actually it WILL be able to run Android apps via this new plugin:

AnHund: This is complete nonsense: "won't support current Windows programs, iPad apps or Android tablet apps". It is not meant to run Windows programs. That is only the Pro version. And iPad or Android apps. Come on!

Some people here are complaining about slowness. I had performance issues with LR4 as well. I went digging around for information and Adobe has released an article detailing all of the things you can do to optimize performance. Check it out here: http://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/optimize-performance-lightroom.html

I was already doing much of this, but the biggest thing that helped me was creating 1:1 previews on import. It takes a while but once they are done LR4 moves much quicker. Give it a try.

Move along people. Nothing to see here.

On Kodak to stop making digital cameras article (146 comments in total)

“For some time, Kodak’s strategy has been to improve margins in the capture device business by narrowing our participation in terms of product portfolio, geographies and retail outlets...” said Pradeep Jotwani, President, Consumer Businesses, and Kodak Chief Marketing Officer.

Read that again.

The President of CB at Kodak is saying their strategy to improve profit was to NARROW (read that as reduce) their participation with outlets. WHAT?!?! That makes no sense at all. It's a great way to kill a business though. As a company you need to be in as many relevant markets as possible. And retail is key. Fire that guy because he doesn't have a clue.
