Mac Faithful to Get an iLife

iLife ’09–the latest iteration of Apple’s multimedia application suite (iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, iWeb, iDVD) arrives at market tomorrow, Jan. 27. Uncrated by Apple SVP Phil Schiller at Macworld earlier this month, iLife ’09 features what looks to be a killer rewrite of iMovie, Apple’s consumer video-editing software, and a new version of Garageband ’09 that offers basic lessons for guitar and piano (free) as well as “artist lessons” from the likes of John Fogerty, Norah Jones and Sting ($4.99). It also boasts a new version of iPhoto that now categorizes photos according “Places” and, thanks to some slick facial recognition technology, “Faces.”

A new iLife ’09 license from Apple (AAPL) will set you back $79 unless you purchased a new Mac on or after Jan. 6, 2009, in which case it’s just $9.95.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
