    Adobe and Avid wasted no time courting distressed Final Cut Pro editors because of the PR poop storm Apple has thrust upon itself with the release of the underwhelming FCPX.

    Adobe has slashed the price of Adobe Premiere and the CS 5.5 production suit by 50% for FCP refugees seeking a safe haven. Adobe has also extended the discount to video professionals switching over from Avid based workstations. ...

As a result, Kodak's shares plummeted 16%.
