    Secret History of iPad

    Secret History of iPad

    10-years ago, on January 27, 2010, Steve Jobs announced a third category of device in the middle, something that’s between a laptop and a smartphone.
    Something that had to be better as browsing, email, photos, video, music, gaming, and eBooks. Something that had to be… the iPad.
    And this is its history and secret origin.

    Why You STILL Can’t Watch 4K YouTube on Apple

    Why You STILL Can’t Watch 4K YouTube on Apple

    It’s 2020 and I still can’t watch 4K YouTube on almost any of my Apple stuff.
    I can watch 4K almost everything else, from iTunes to Netflix to Disney+ to Vimeo, just not YouTube. And I can watch 4K YouTube on almost everything else, from Roku to Amazon to ChromeCast, just not my Apple stuff.
    So, why, and more importantly, when’s it all just going to be fixed?

    The Evil Cult of Apple

    The Evil Cult of Apple

    Is Apple evil?
    Yes. Of course. 100%.
    But in a far more dangerous way than the cliched, cartoonish, contorted new Evil List article in Slate suggests.

    Cinematic Color Grading RAW in Final Cut Pro X

    Cinematic Color Grading RAW in Final Cut Pro X

    Late last year, I upgraded the main camera I use for filming these videos to the Canon C200. A cinema camera, which means one built specifically for shooting video. Not a still camera that also shoots video.
    There were a bunch of reasons for this, which I can get into in another video if you’re interested, but the biggest for me was the ability to run XLR mics straight into the camera instead of having to use intermediary interfaces and recorders, and the ability to get a picture that looks pretty close to an Arri system but for like one tenth the price.
    At first, I just stuck with my usual workflow. I’m a big believer in first learn walk, then learn fly. So, I recorded standard MP4 to an SD card, color corrected it, and that was pretty much it.
    But, one of the best things about the C200 is that it can shoot in RAW. Which, just like RAW in photography, captures a ton more information so you not only get a better quality recording, you preserve a ton more options for color correction and grading.
    So, I talked to a ton of experts, I watched a ton of videos, and got ready to make the switch and start recording RAW to CFast cards.
    But, a lot of the workflows I’d heard and found involved Adobe Premiere or, even more frequently, DaVinci Resolve and I… I just don’t like either of their interfaces. I use, like and really wanted to stay inside Final Cut Pro X.
    So, I adapted, I tested, I tweaked, I iterated, and I shared a lot of work in progress on Twitter and Insta, where a lot of you were kind of enough to give me feedback. And also ask a lot of questions about the workflow I was putting together.
    Questions I couldn’t really answer until I had something I felt was at least a little consistent. Until now.

    iPadOS 14 — What Comes Next [Wishlist]

    iPadOS 14 — What Comes Next [Wishlist]

    This time last year we had new, incredibly powerful iPad Pro hardware, but what we didn’t have was the iOS software to truly unlock all of its potential.
    iOS 12 had been, in large part, a performance and stability release, and I loved that. Loved it so much I’m going to repeat the need to repeat it every year basically ad nauseam Infinitum until it happens.
    But, we were missing things. Especially things that would let the iPad be the iPad. I’d been asking for an iPadOS for like 5 years. Something that would keep the iOS underpinnings but let the experience be as unique, the way the watch and TV had been treated basically since launch.
    And… just when I’d all but given up hope, Apple gave it to us. iPadOS. Along with many of the features many of us had been asking for since Steve Jobs had first sat down with it in that big comfy chair.
    Most of the features… but not all of them, and not all the way.
    Just the other day I made a video about the return to focus on reliability and performance enhancements, and a few new features I’d love to see in iOS 14 for the iPhone.
    Now, I’m going to roll right into the iPad.
