Back to the Mac with Apple iLife'11

With all the excitement in the mobility arena, Apple has showed that they have not forgotten about their Mac business. But, expect more familiar iOS (iphone/iPad) feel into Mac OS 10.7 (Lion) & Apps...

 At the recent "Back to the Mac" event Apple has announced their mac revenue grossed (3x of what they had in 2005) at a startling $22B. That figure was only 33% while the rest of it comes from non-Mac business...

 The newly announced iLife '11 has definitely surpassed my expectations with all the cutting edge features found particularly with iPhoto '11, iMovie '11 & Garageband '11.
Apple iLife '11

Once again Apple has redefined how easy it is to share your experiences digitally while making you look like a professional. My favourites being the new "Movie Trailer" function from iMovie that enable you to make a "Blockbuster looking" Hollywood movie trailer...The social media integration with iPhoto on top of all the great special effect slideshows...also, the "How did I Play" to gauge how you play against the original music score from Garageband...

A sample of iMovie's "Movie Trailer" DIY clip by ProphotoHuston (Rome Wilkerson Photographer):

Simple template for creating "Hollywood" Movie trailers...just fill the details & iMovie will do the rest...

Some slideshows effects from iPhoto '11:
"Places" iPhoto 11 Slideshow effect

"Origami" iPhoto '11 Slideshow effect

Projects view shows you all your projects on a bookshelf. In full screen, you can see even more of them at once. Now where have I seen this view before...
iPhoto'11 "Project" view

Garageband's "How did I play"
How did I Play
 "As you play along with any lesson, record yourself. GarageBand listens in real time and tells you how you’re doing. You’ll see how well you played with colored notes, a progress bar, and a performance meter. You can check your rhythm and note accuracy, keep track of your progress, and beat your best score — all while perfecting your skills."

   Can't really wait to get my copy of iLife '11 over the weekend...

Before Apple iPad was Newton Messagepad

Long before Apple's iPad or iPhone was Apple Newton Messagepad (100, 120, 130, 2000 & 2100) & eMate 300 all running Newton OS then. So Apple didn't like "just wake up one morning" & decided to create a series of mobile devices like the iPhone & the iPad...

Below is an cute ad of Blackberry vs Apple iPad & Newton MP...

For those who had used the super slick Newton OS before would agree that there were many state-of-the-art features...many we wished we had them in the earlier iphone. Among were how text can be managed (copied, pasted, moved, erased, styled, etc) & also how free hand sketches can be turned into nice shapes in your notepad...not to mention printing or fax... too bad the world weren't ready for it then...
Apple Messagepad 2100
Check out the demo by "" on Apple's MP2100:

These are some old advertisements on Apple Newton MessagePad:
"Who is Newton?"

"What's Newton?"

Apple Newton Getting Started Video:

This is how Apple eMate 300 (also running Newton OS) looked:
Apple eMate 300

It kidda resembles a netbook doesn't it? Will the Netbook suffer the same fate?
