TWiP 469: This Week in Apple!

Today was Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference, held in San Francisco California. Though many speculated and hoped the company would release shiny new hardware, they instead announced much needed enhancements to many of their software products including macOS, iOS, watchOS, tvOS and HomeKit.

In this show we discuss some of the new releases, and how they might impact photographers. Plus a look at a Kickstarter project to develop the world's first universal camera.

  1. One for the most dangerous/worst aspects of the “rent-a-software” practice have not even been touched in your discussion: disempowerment of the customer, particularly when the software in question is de-facto “industry standard” (Windows, Adobe,…).
    I will illustrate this in an example: Imagine that MS switched to this practice during the XP days. Than, they released Windows Vista… In “buy your software” days, customers were able to give a strong feedback to the MS by NOT purchasing Vista. Vista sales were dismal and that led to quick, hard work by MS to develop good (better than Vista) Windows 7. Customers were able to keep using their old and functional XP and use de-facto software standard. In hypothetical world of “rent-a-Windows”, customers would be faced with bad or bad options and no ability to press MS behavior by their own money. The basis of free market. In that case you could either pay and continue to use de-facto standard software, be it the very crappy version or refuse to pay. In the latter case you, the customer would pay the most of the consequences, MS would lose some money but you would be out of de-facto standard software and forced to switch to a completely new platform. Weak feedback pressure to the manufacturer, strong feedback pressure to the customer: DISEMPOWERED customer.
    That is the main evil of “rent-a-software” practice.
