Final Cut on Mar. 24th?
Apple continues to have special plans for March 24th, a German website claims. Although rumors had pointed to an update of Mac desktops on that date, Apple surprised analysts and the public by releasing the systems on March 3rd instead. Some form of announcement is believed to remain scheduled for the 24th however, specifically relating to the company's professional video software.
Included could be a new version of Final Cut Studio, which is presently described as undergoing internal beta testing. The software may in fact be critical to the event, as it is thought that the event on the 24th may exclude any sort of hardware release. The Studio beta is however said to be "quite buggy," which could force Apple to delay an announcement by several weeks. The initial date would foreshadow the National Association of Broadcasters show set for April 18th, a common platform for video-related launches.
