FCP X Unless you've been under a low-tech, Internet-less rock for the past two weeks, you've probably heard about Final Cut Pro X, the latest version of Apple's professional video app, if only in passing. Let me bring you up to speed if you don't already know how the drama unfolded: FCP X was met with mixed reactions, most of them negative, thanks to a healthy set of missing features that video professionals rely on.

Farrell pleaded guilty in March 2016 to one count of distribution of heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine last month, which carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison. He will also be required to forfeit items that were seized at his arrest in Bellevue, Washington, which included $3,900 in silver bullion bars, $35,000 in cash, and "various computer media." Both Farrell’s lawyers and prosecutors have agreed to a sentence of eight years, but the judge is allowed to impose a harsher sentence if he chooses. (By comparison, Ross Ulbricht, who was convicted of running the original Silk Road, was sentenced in 2015 to a dual life sentence.) … [Read more...] about Top Silk Road 2.0 admin “DoctorClu” pleads guilty, could face 8 years in prison
