I'm wondering that too. It's been a while since iLife has been updated. Hopefully Apple gets around to it sometime. Apple used to update iLife every year.

That would mean iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie and more; the apps that OS X/iPod/iPhone are based around are iDead.

No, if they were updated they would be just that... updated. If your worried about backwards compatibility it'll be there. Programs relying on older versions of iLife wouldn't stop working. I'd be like all the previous updates. I can't think of a reason why updating would be a bad thing.

I agree that its time for an update. But if iLife was 'iDead', that would mean the core apps behind a lot of Apple technology would freeze in a quickly outdated version.

just the opposite!

I think the next iLife suite will be coming out soon -- and on both PC and Mac platforms simultaneously.

Apple has shown with Quicktime and iTunes (and Safari?) that they do a great job of designing software for the PC. So why not offer the iLife suite for the hordes of PC users everywhere?

One caveat: Creating iLife for PC would give a potential switcher (to Macintosh) less motivation to make the move. So I guess it's a delicate balance. That's why they pay Steve Jobs the big buck. [sic]
