Apple Announced Final Cut Pro X Next Gen Video Editor

Last night Apple announced that they will be releasing their latest version of Final Cut Pro. This version has been totally rewritten to support 64-bit, and Grand Central Dispatch (Apple's technology to support all cores.) The iMovie type interface is defiantly catching on with the latest Final Cut Pro. You will be seeing this in the Mac App store in June for $300.

Microsoft Zune Is Dead

Too bad, the Zune product line is now officially dead says Microsoft. Microsoft will no longer produce any Zune players but might actually keep investing in the Zune software and put it to good use elsewhere. So if you're not a fan of the iPod, you might as well get yourself a Zune until they're all sold out.

Apple Mac Store Opens it's Doors on January 6th


Apple has announced that it's Mac app store will be available for download on January 6th next year. This is Apple's desktop version of the already incredibly popular iPhone and iPad app stores. But everyone still running 10.5 needs to upgrade to 10.6 to take advantage of the Mac App store as it only runs on Snow Leopard. Apple is planning on launching it around the world in 90 countries and will include free and paid apps of a wide range of apps for Apple's computer OS from developers all around the world. However Apple is not taking submissions of apps that are trials, demos, or betas, you will have to go to the developer's website to get these, but if you are a developer, I would suggest getting yours in there to get better exposure as it will probably be as big of a hit with developers and consumers alike as the iPhone and iPad app store. 

Read the press release below.

Droid Incredible Receiving Software Update


You know the rumoured software update for the Droid Incredible? Well now a handful of Droid Incredible owners are saying that they have got the OTA update for the new software. Even though it is not Froyo, this software update does have some awesome features. These include 3G wifi hotspots (however you will need to pay $20 a month for this), 720p video recording and a new boot up screen. There will also be the Skype app built into the Incredible and some other Verizon software as well.

The update isn't official yet but we should see it roll out to all Droid Incredible's over the next couple of weeks. Even though it is not Froyo, (which we should see on the Droid Incredible later this summer) the update should be a nice welcome to the Incredible and keep it one of the hottest phones on the market this summer.
