As Apple Turns reported on Friday, a week ago a large man dressed as a turtle stood outside Apple Headquarters in Cupertino with a sign and distributing flyers that read: “Five million people fly each day. Give them a Mac experience during their flight. Turn bored passengers into switchers. United, American and Delta go face-to-face with over 100,000 passengers per day. Compare that to the number of people who shop at Apple Stores. See what we do www.deltabeta.com. Put Mac in the Sky the easy and fun way.

Movie Scoring: Is it Soundtrack or is it Live?

You’ve probably heard a lot of buzz about Apple’s new movie scoring, loop-based music product, Soundtrack. So far, though, most of the buzz has been in video circles. That’s because musicians depend on synth tools like those in Reason and the interactive, live looping capabilities of Live. Soundtrack is cool, but it lacks ReWire for interoperability with other apps. Enter ReVision, a video app that works with Live and Reason which I covered today on musiconmac.com (music geeks, check that story out for the details). My guess: some musicians might use Soundtrack for light work, but most of us will stick with our preferred tools.
