iLife '08 "biggest jump" since iLife debut

Apple releases iLife '08

Apple on Tuesday also released iLife '08, saying that the latest release of its software suite is the "biggest jump" in the software's history since its initial debut. The company has added a new feature to iPhoto called "events," which can automatically organize photographs based on actual events. "Events" center around the fact that most users take photos to remember various events -- like birthdays and holiday gatherings -- which are usually organized in the same fashion. Events in iPhoto allow users to group photos intuitively, and separates photos automatically by the day they were taken. Users can split multiple event photos on a single day, and can view photos in two separate ways or hide photos via a new similarly-titled option.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced that the company's .Mac service has 1.7 million subscribers, and that users can publish an iPhoto gallery to a .Mac account and create a .Mac Web gallery. Visitors can view photos on the Web in any browser in any desired form, and can download those photos in print quality or upload to a Web gallery. iPhoto users who also own iPhones can view their pictures from the cellular phone itself, and can send photos directly to their iPhone or sync with iPhoto.

    does imovie...

    support analog to DV converters such as the Formac Studio and Miglia Directors Cut again after breaking it in iMovie 5.X (or HD)??? This is, of course, the second time they've broken support, did the same thing with 3.0 and didn't fix it 'til 3.0.3 despite the fact that these devices still work fine with the latest versions of Final Cut Studio. Go figure!

    Rebate or coupon?

    I bought a brand new Macbook Pro less than 3 weeks ago. Will Apple consider giving me a coupon for free or discounted upgrade to iLife 08? I think they have done this in the past.

    PPC and coupon

    Will the new iLife run on old PowerBooks like mine?

    Specs says it'll run on a Intel, G5 and G4 computer (sorry, no G3s allowed, I guess that '5 years of support' doesn't mean they'll make new software for the computers for 5 years, just they won't completely drop all support for 5 years).

    Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Oh, that's funny! A rebate? On a three week old computer purchase? What are you smokin'? Maybe, just maybe, they'd give you the ability to update to the latest version, if you got your computer starting today, for the low price of $10 S&H. But Apple does NOT offer upgrades to users on products bought before the announcement of an updated product. Just isn't done.

    Re: rebate

    Noticed on the MacNN site, you're eligible for a 'free' update to iLife if you buy your computer after aug. 7. And only certain models, too.

    "biggest jump" ??!!??

    I still haven't reached the point where the hype just flows past me.

    As I can't see all that much new, I am hoping that we will get much needed bug fixes and UI improvements. The events feature is one, I just hope there are many more.

    Any chance that iPhoto will at last import pdfs? After all it is supposed to be the default format for the Mac.

    rebate

    The software iLife is included with the purchase of a new model mac. Even if you buy the old model today, its not included. It's $79 if you already have a mac and need to upgrade. It's about $1199 if you don't have the mac yet, and need the mac included with your software purchase.

    Consider yourself lucky.
