hi



do you think that a new iLife 05 will be released at MWSF? (my brother wants to buy an iBook and we are wandering if we should wait after MWSF to get some updates APPs)

    I have to disagree. Although I would want to see a new iLife (with DL burning support etc.), I don't think it's going to happen.



    iLife has always followed OS X updates. It's another way for Apple to squeeze a few extra dollars from it's customers. iLife 05 will arrive a month after Tiger.

    iLife 05 will almost certainly follow Tiger's release, but for good solid technical reasons, paranoid delusions aside.



    CoreMedia (Core{Audio, Video, Image}) provides such an amazing leap forward that iLife 05 is more or less assumed to be built on it.



    Now, it may be that CoreMedia will initially ship as underlying frameworks for iLife the way parts of it did with Motion, but I suspect that they'll just hold off and release it as 10.4 only.

    You are completely correct on the technical side. But what I wrote was not a paranoid delusion. Remember when Apple first released iLife? Apple said it themselves that they needed to recover some of the development costs of the iLife apps. (I think Steve Jobs mentioned it at some Expo.)



    Marketing will force the iLife to follow OS X releases in order to maximize profit. Just like they have been doing in the past couple of years.

    10.3 doesn't come with garageband or idvd, but it does come with iphoto 4 imovie 4 and itunes 4.7. What's wrong with iLife '05 in Jan, tiger later on (without iLife) and then iLife '06 with tiger support! EVEN more money

    Hi,



    Unless things are different in the UK Mac OS X 10.3 does not come with iPhoto 4 or iMovie 4. It probably includes version 2 of both of those apps. Once iLife 04 was released they stopped giving it away, you only got it for free if you bought a new Mac. iTunes is the only part of the iLife suite that's still free. As much as I'd love to see an iLife 05 in January, what Kickaha said makes perfect sense. Maybe what they'll do is announce a release date for both Tiger and iLife 05, and maybe bundle them together for a little savings. This is purely a guess on my part, and is not based on anything factual or otherwise.



    Cheers,

    Marc

    Maybe they wanted to reduce support costs for the really outdated versions of these programs.
