But what can it do in Safe Mode with DV to the internal drive that ships with the G5? Apple's Paul Saccone is going to show us. Plus, what is in FCP 4.1 and why do we need it. Plus, we will be among the first in the country to take a look at AJA's brand new low cost Io LA and LD breakout box. Plus, Paul will take questions. Plus, Paul will answer them.
