A copy of Apple's iLife comes with every Mac computer. This collection of applications (iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, iWeb, iDVD) are without equal in the PC world. We upgrade whenever there is a new version not because we need or use all of the new features, but because there is always that one really cool feature that we really wanted to try.
While each of the iLife 09 apps has something new, the one feature we were most intrigued with was iPhoto's facial recognition capabilities.
The new version of iMovie now requires an Intel based Mac to work. The other apps will work with the older G4-based units. Included in the package is also a trial copy of iWork. We don't know much about it, but will give it a look-see.
We'll install this new version of iLife and report back on how well the facial recognition feature works. We will also try out the other apps to see if there are any surprises to those upgrades as well. [Permalink]- iLife 09
