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.

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...

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...

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...
