You know what is the best bit from the video, besides the wonderful animation and ever so thoughtful and considered user interface (UI)? Push Pop Press are licensing the technology to book publishers. So we should expect to see more content like this in the near future.
To think it takes a smaller company with a smaller amount of resources to design and produce something that is far more intuitive than what is the current ‘standard’ for digital books.
The book being demoed is Al Gore’s ‘Our Choice’ which is already for sale on the App Store. (£2.99 UK) link.
Lightroom is more efficient with processing raw files while Aperture is quicker importing and exporting raw files
One thing for me to gauge from this is: buying an SSD won’t actually solve my Aperture 3 slowness. A bit of good news considering the prices of SSD’s at the moment. Bad news, I need a new Mac to get the processor upgrade! Barefeats also noted that Aperture only used 4% GPU processing power as well. That’s a shame if true.
We tried exporting to both single HDD and single SSD. The export times were identical which tells us that the processing by CPU is the bottleneck (emphasis mine). Activity monitor shows that even when the SSD was used, it was loafing along at 6.9MB/s transfer rate and 46 operations per second when it is capable of 40 times that transfer rate and 490 times that many operations per second. – Barefeats.
