Leaked Screenshot: Final Cut WebEdit

Editor's note: We don't normally post our own rumors here, preferring to crib them from other sites and rip on them, but this one was too good to pass up.
Yesterday, Apple released a preview of their forthcoming update to .Mac Mail. Check out the preview and you'll see that the new web site looks strikingly similar to Apple's own Mail program bundled with Mac OS X.

Today, an AtAT2 reader, who identified him/herself only as "Sparklefluff," sent us this screenshot of another Apple program being ported to the web, Final Cut Pro. Check it out:

Sparklefluff maintains that Final Cut WebEdit is still in early Alpha-stage development. "Right now it's just running on a beefed-up QuickTime Plugin and a whole helluva lotta Ajax, but it's gonna be just like the real thing, only hella slower."

What would be the merits of running Final Cut Pro inside a web browser, you ask? Hmm, good question. Oh! You're a videographer on the go who doesn't always have access to your own computer. Yeah. Or you're stuck without your Mac and need to edit on a Windows PC. Wait, Final Cut Pro on Windows? Whoa.....

Nice Photoshop work. The time it would take to edit final cut pro on the web would be more than if you drove down to the Applestore, bought a new computer and FCP came back, had a sandwich, loaded FCP, created your project, finished your project, got PAID for your project, the web project would still be "loading: and you would have a perpetual spinning beach ball.

I bet the guys at Apple are having a good laugh at this right now. The Photoshop work isn't that nice.

The funniest thing here is when it was picked up on digg.
Windows and Linux geeks took it seriously(!)

If you fancy a laugh, put something tech-related on digg that is obviously fake, or sarcastic or funny, and watch the geeks totally grab the wrong end of a completely different stick.

I saw a post that highlighted a CARS episode, which basically took the p**s out of ubuntu users. It started off semi-serious, but then collapsed into sarcasm in the extreme. Not one geek saw the joke. Funneeee...
