Apple has pulled the plug on Aperture. But not only Aperture, iPhoto is a goner, too!

Both are reportedly to be replaced with a new Photos app (the one Apple demo’d at WWDC) in the next release of the Mac OS (Mac OS Yosemite), something this fall.

Wow!!! Kinda stunned. Not as stunned as the guy in the TV above, but stunned nevertheless. Of note: the last time Apple introduced a new version of Aperture (Aperture 3) was back in February of 2010. Apparently they had discontinued development long ago â” now they’re just making it official.
