While at the Apple Store today, purchasing iLife ’09, I made an interesting discovery. Apple seems to have “forgotten” about iDVD on the iLife ’09 Box.
At the Macworld 2009 Keynote, earlier this month, Phil Shiller didn’t even mention iDVD. We found that odd, considering iLife has been a suite of five applications for a few years.
The same is shown when visiting Apple’s iLife page; it says “iLife ’09. iPhoto. iMovie. Garageband. iWeb. All part of every new Mac.”
It has been a feeling of mine for some time that Apple wants all media to be shared via the internet, and not via DVDs, and I think the exclusion of iDVD from the iLife ’09 box helps to confirm my theory.
The only one mention of iDVD on the entire box, is in the fine print, listing iDVD as part of the Contents; “Contents: DVD containing iPhoto, iMovie, Garageband, iWeb, iDVD and QuickTime…”
