Odd. I'm at the Mall of America Apple Store -- and they don't have Aperture anywhere. It's as though it never existed. Clearly it's not a big seller here, but the machines have the rest of the pro suite. I wonder if Apple wants to wait for version 1.51 to install.
Another odd thing. I appear to be one of the few people that care that Aperture does not allow users to edit date metadata associated with an image.
