Why do people always say “you don’t need to kill apps.”
Yes, yes I do need to. Otherwise, if I hit the back button, it will take me back to that stupid app.
Those people are not really customers of Adobe and do not matter.
Adobe makes professional software, which few people here seem to understand. They price as such. They do not look to sell to individuals, or people that are still using antiquated versions. They sell to companies that then use these products to make large sums of money.
Hobbyists and people that do not upgrade are not really giving Adobe any money. Yes, anything they get from these people is nice, but that’s not their target audience because they get so little money from them relative to how much large studios and designers give them.

mldi, I doubt you were paying for Photoshop at its current price, anyway.
Adobe makes a trimmed down version, elements, which is far cheaper and still available.
Why is it so outrageously expensive? Because it’s professional software not aimed at hobbyists but aimed at people that are making a whole lot of money off of it.
For those non-professionals, the cheaper versions are meant to suffice.

Yup, definitely not the 928. Instead, it’ll be the device Verizon users look at and contemplate jumping to AT&T for instead of buying a 928.
Like I said, it depends on how I’m thinking. I was formerly a programmer. I’m now in business. RPN, when walking through strategic steps, doesn’t work as well. RPN is best for when you know what you’re doing. It’s nowhere near as good for when you’re throwing things at a wall.
When I have a full screen and CAS I am not a fan. With one of those old HP-14Bs (or whatever the financial calculator was) it’s fine, but the advantage of a graphing calculator to me these days is being able to see all the steps of a calculation I did and backtrack easily. I don’t find that as true with RPN.
But it isn’t TI!
I did a good amount of research on a new calculator back in the fall. Just don’t think I could pull the trigger on an HP. All those weirdos in college that came from HP high schools were outcasts!
And, often, it’s nice to have a calculator on your desk at work. Yeah, even with a smartphone in your pocket, another on the desk, and about 18 windows of Excel open.

Unless Verizon isn’t getting one of those flagships (or, more likely, only getting an HTC one.)
Well, if you’re hoping for innovations, prepare to be disappointed.
It looks like a rebodied 920 with a Xenon flash. So, better flash, lesser proportions (it’s the same size screen on a taller phone), and 6 month old guts.
Not that WP8 needs the most modern guts, but it’s disappointing that it’s almost definitely the exact same phone AT&T users have had since launch, just in a lesser form factor (how did it grow so much taller!?) and with a better flash you may or may not ever use.
I would have totally swooned for a 4.3" screen.
