Apple has come out with a product called Aperture that looks to directly challenge Adobe's Bridge preview and Camera Raw input hegemony. From what I've seen on Apple's website, it looks like a killer app (see http://www.apple.com/aperture/quicktours/), doing just about everything a documentary photographer would want to do. It isn't Photoshop but it's lightweight and fast and does the types of color correction, photo library management (the biggest thing for me), and formatting output that I need to do. It's retailing at $499 for civilians and $149 for academics. I've placed an order, but shipping is 6-8 weeks. Phooey!
The new quad-core G5's also look like they're exactly what the HDV documentary filmmaker has wanted for a while. Twin dual-core G5's at 2.5 ghz. Wow, you could almost do live H.264 encoding on these. :-) And only $2499 for the model I want. What a bargain.
