Apple Releases iLife '06
Tuesday January 10, 2005

Apple today announced iLife '06, which the company says is the most significant upgrade to its award- winning suite of digital lifestyle applications ever. "iLife '06 features iPhoto 6 with blazing performance, new printed books, calendars and cards, and Apple's innovative new Photocasting for sharing photos over the Internet; iMovie HD 6 with new motion themes for adding spectacular production value to your movies; iDVD 6 for authoring custom DVDs for today's widescreen TVs; and GarageBand 3, now the complete solution for creating professional-quality Podcasts.

iLife '06 also introduces iWeb, a new iLife application that makes it super-easy to create amazing websites with photos, blogs and Podcasts and publish them on .Mac for viewing by anyone on the Internet with just a single click." iLife '06 is now available for a suggested retail price of US$79, and will be included with all new Macs.

You can always call them, but I doubt you'll get very far. Did you buy it in an Apple Store or over the net?

I will definitely upgrade to this...

I just hope that it handles red-eye better than 05...

I think that Apple will give you some sort of discount (if not give it to you for free) if you just bought your Mac two weeks ago..

Interesting thing is that it is still showing that iLife 05 is still shipping with new Mini's at the Apple Store...

I am pretty interested in iWeb, mainly for the photo and blog features.

I just got done watching the keynote (after getting timed-out a few times). I was pretty impressed with iWeb, iPhoto and GB3.

luckily i bought it through the apple website...

no huge loss though. The only thing I'm really interested in is the robust iPhoto update. Heck I shouldn't even complain I got the upgraded version.

I'll definitely be upgrading. When it goes to version 0.1 or 0.2, though.

iWeb might be interesting, but I was really hoping they would add a MIDI clock to GB. Sad

I ordered 06 today from Amazon. They have it for $71. I would have ordered from Apple, but someone gave me a gift certificate for Christmas. Very Happy

I hope Leopard comes out mid year. That would be a good time to buy another mini. iLife 06, OS 10.5 (which I'm sure Apple will charge for), and likely front row. All that software will almost pay for the price of the mini.

For me, everything I have right now works. I'm in no rush.

That would be a giant surprise. I don't think it will happen though. We'll be lucky if we see a quarter of what Leopard has to offer at WWDC.

According to the Apple Store (UK one), if you order a Mac today, you'll get iLife '06 in the box. They do something known as a "drop pack" - they just stick the DVD and manuals in the box.

I just spoke to a telephone operator at Apple about ten minutes ago and got him to check this twice, to be extra sure.
