A pair of Apple press releases from today...
...and got me wondering. Which is better: having the fastest computer? Or the most powerful one?
Both boxes run on two 3.2 GHz Intel Quad-Core Xeon processors. Perhaps the difference to Apple marketing is that one is a "Mac," the other a "server." The Mac should do graphics fast; the server should process data (hard drive) requests quickly.
Canon, Et Tu?
In similar vein, Canon tries to make two products equally great. Which is better: a complete experience or an ultimate experience?
Canon U.S.A. Announces New Lineup of Standard Definition Camcorders for a Complete Consumer Recording Experience
I suppose it is possible to have an ultimate experience (like bungy jumping or reaching the peak of a mountain) without feeling complete.
Technically, Canon marketing has painted itself into a corner: by declaring its VIXIA camcorders as "the ultimate," it can never produce a consumer camcorder with better specs.
