Watanabe likes to say this when asked about updating Inquisitor: "Any decisions about the product are Yahoo!'s to make. It stopped being my product the day it was sold."

The day it was sold?

Let's see, this is what you wrote on your blog, the day it was sold:

"I look forward to assisting Yahoo! in refining and extending the Inquisitor user experience beyond where it is today. I truly believe that Inquisitor and its users can only benefit, both from Yahoo's resources and attention, and from the product integration possibilities that would have been impossible to pursue on my own.
It's important to note that while I will continue to be the lead developer behind Inquisitor for Safari, I will not be joining Yahoo! as an employee. I have every desire and intention to remain an independent developer for the Mac, meaning that Inquisitor,Xtorrent, Acquisition, and NewsFire will all continue to be equal priorities in my life."

What?! Assist Yahoo! in refining and extending the Inquisitor user experience? Users will benefit? You're the still lead developer? Inquisitor still be an equal priority along with your other products?

I have been using SimpleMovie for a few years now, and I could not be happier with its progress and development. It has become faster, more stable, and more feature-rich.

I use SimpleMovie to do all my censoring of R-rated movies. I've become so good and fast at it, that I have friends and family grabbing my edited movies on a daily basis. If it were legal, I would start a company, and 'simply' use SimpleMovieX.

The power of SimpleMovieX is best demonstrated when I edited The Departed. I was editing a 2 GB mp4 file (.avi is always a disaster waiting to happen), and I quickly took out 256 f-words, and a hundred or so more inappropriate terms.
It took many hours, but SimpleMovieX was reliable, stable, and easy to use.

Movie files are sometimes quite unstable, especially synchronization issues. However, I have been impressed with the sync tool within SimpleMovie. It isn't perfect, but it's the best solution out there without converting the movie file a 3rd time.

Also, Benoît Joossen (the creator) has been fantastic. One of the updates created a new style where the selection didn't follow the playhead. I sent him an email, and within the day, he had a new version of SimpleMovie with a preference in the Editing tab, where you change it back to the old method. Talk about customer service!

This is one app that is very worthy of its price. You will get great support with constant application updates and enhancement.
