iWeb '08 released

Apple's bevy of announcements during today's special media event included a significant update to iWeb as part of the iLife '08 suite. The new release of iWeb includes web widgets, which allow you to add live content from other sites, like video, stock tickers, and headline news. There is also the ability to add Google Mpas directly into iWeb-created Web pages, as well as easy AdSense sign-up. Apple says "Just complete the simple Google registration process, choose from a variety of ad formats and colors to match your site, designate areas on your pages, and ads will magically appear. You'll be earning credits immediately." A new "My Album pages" function lets you index all your photo and movie sections on one page. As such, visitors will get an overview of all the media on your site. There are also eight brand-new themes for iWeb '08. Each theme contains templates for all the pages you're likely to need: welcome, blog, photo albums, podcasts, about me, and a blank page. iLife '08 is priced at $79, and available from the Apple Store.

    What about the code?

    Yes, but what about the code? Have they fixed the code generator the produces code that is so bloated that all iWeb sites are instantly recognizable by their slow load speeds?

    or control over keywords?

    iWeb could use some help from oh, about a dozen or sow WYSIwYG site creation tools that eclipse it with ability to use advanced tools like stupidly simple and yet essential things like keywords.

    I hope the scratch of the surface intro they did just simply didn't cover some of the really needed improvements.

    till then, I'm avoiding this.

    iWeb access to AdSense

    I just received an email from google asking for permission to allow iWeb to have access to my account. Is that normal? My ads are still generating revenue without allowing Apple access to my Adsense account, so I'm wondering if this is legit...
