That would rock, and I would actually love to have Rendezvous photo sharing. «12»Comments Reply 1 of 40 hmurchison Posts: 12,341member January 6, 2004 11:54AM Man I thought you actually had information on this. Perhaps you should have waited until after the keynote to speculate. Just my $.02 Reply 2 of 40 mrmister Posts: 1,095member January 6, 2004 11:58AM Also, I'm excited that he talks about rotating keeping full resolution--that's my other pet peeve.

Just my $.02 Actually, Steve just said in the keynote that the biggest feature is that it can handle 25,000 pictures without slowing down. Same with the rendezvous sharing. The thread stays. Reply 4 of 40 mrmister Posts: 1,095member January 6, 2004 12:01PM I don't see why I should wait--that seems unnecessarily spoilsportish. When I test the app, I'll let you know.

I thought you were merely speculating until I read the report. I'm hoping for speed. Reply 8 of 40 mrmister Posts: 1,095member January 6, 2004 12:27PM S'ok. Reply 9 of 40 firehc Posts: 368member January 6, 2004 1:17PM just missed the keynote,am i right that no more free download of new iphoto, imovie, ?? Reply 10 of 40 donny Posts: 231member January 6, 2004 1:22PM There are no links for any iLife application on Apple.com, but Jobs said these applications would not be available to order until Jan 16th. I hope the downloads are up at this time also. GarageBand and iDVD, I understand these applications are large for a download, but I wish we did have the option. I did buy a Mac already... However, I'll be a bit upset if the other apps turn out to have no downloadable update...*sighs*I guess we'll see soon...

I think the free ride for these has ended.

Muhahahahha!! We still have two months left to whine in!!! Reply 13 of 40 pbg4 dude Posts: 1,611member January 6, 2004 2:10PM I can only find download links for iTunes on the Apple site.As Hobbes said, it looks like the free ride is over. iDVD has always been a paid update, and I'm sure that GarageBand would never be a downloadable program. But, with the updates to iPhoto, and the addition of GarageBand, $50 is quite the paltry sum to part with for all this software goodness. Reply 14 of 40 donny Posts: 231member January 6, 2004 2:13PM Guys... These applications are NOT available yet...So there is no way a link to download the new versions could be on the pages yet. I do not give up hope so soon. Reply 15 of 40 gabid Posts: 477member January 6, 2004 2:19PM Hmmm...Last year before the Keynote there was a lot of people up in arms over the fact that it looked like all of the iApps would be paid upgrades. Turns out they weren't. It will be interesting to see how all this plays out though. The way the new versions were introduced was somewhat ambiguous: it was never said 100% clearly that there will be no free updates to iPhoto or iMovie. It seems like there will not be, but Apple does have quite a bit of wiggle room here. I'm pretty sure they'll be getting a question or two about this on the floor of the show, so maybe we'll get lucky and get a clear official statement one way or the other.

The iLife bundle is $29 if you qualify for the edu price. Thank goodness my better half teaches at the local community college! Reply 17 of 40 macsrgood4u Posts: 3,007member January 6, 2004 2:28PM I doubt there will be free updates. The new suite does come free with all new Macs however. At $49 it ain't too bad a deal. Reply 18 of 40 buonrotto Posts: 6,368member January 6, 2004 2:31PM Judging from the press release, it sounds like iTunes will remain the only free download. There was no mention of other downloads becoming available at all. That's my interpretation anyway. That's a shame for iPhoto at least. I think iPhoto and iTunes are sort of special catalogging apps moreso than iMovie, iDVD or now Garage Band, which are more for creating content. iMovie might be too cumbersome for downloading also at this point. iTunes is the only one with another revenue stream, so the free updates for current users of the other apps (iPhotoand iMovie anyway) don't have much to stand on except precedence. I do wish Apple left iPhoto for free. Oh well.

Thank goodness my better half teaches at the local community college! Looks like they are keeping this quite cheap (which further suggests no free upgrades). Heck, here in Canada the normal price is just $59 and the edu price is $29. Looks like Apple is slowly getting less cruel with exchange rates!
