So Mike from Macsoda wrote us saying he got a response from Steve Jobs to his email wondering about the future of Final Cut Pro (40 Final Cut Pro developers were recently let go). Typically brief, Steve Jobs said:
No worries. FCP is alive and well.
But we weren’t just going to take his word that the email was from Jobs. We asked for the header information from the email as well — which was sent to us.
The email looks legit as it originates from an internal Apple 17.x.x.x IP address. But then we noticed something kind of funny. Steve Jobs’ iPhone is listed as iPhone Mail (7D11) which means he’s on 3.1.2. That’s not even the current version of the iPhone OS (3.1.3 – 7E18), let alone the 4.0Beta we’re were hoping to see.
Anyway, if you are out there Mr. Jobs…you can keep your iPhone current by connecting it to iTunes and then running an update.
