Customer Alex J wrote to Jobs:
Getting worried about Apple’s interest in Final Cut. Last updates were not stellar. I heard a bunch of engineers were dropped too – give us a sign you still care about Pro Video, not just the iPad.
Jobs typically terse but surprisingly good-natured response:
We certainly do. Folks who left were in support, not engineering. Next release will be awesome.
“Awesome?” That’s all well and good, Steve. Just assure us that the next Final Cut Pro will be bodacious, tubular and radical as well.
