It's that time of year. My feet are aching, my back is sore, and I'm feeling extremely rundown from the overall atmosphere of Las Vegas. Yes, you guessed it. It's NAB week.

Some have pointed out that many of Final Cut Pro X's much-lauded new features are not really that new. This backlash seems to happen with every Apple product, perhaps out of response to the rapturous reception with which Apple fanboys greet the superlative-laced presentations.
