Most of that sounds interesting but not great. This
Site Builder ~ This is the one I think is most likely to make it to market. An easy to use website creator that would fill the void between free stripped down site creators and programs like Dreamweaver. I am sure that lots of people would like to make their own sites but have no idea how. If they use a free site builder from one hosting site they might be unaware of how to move those pages to a new site. Likewise Dreamweaver and Indesign might be out of their budget. So, Apple enters with an easy to use website design program that seamlessly integrates photos from iPhoto, movies from iMovie and sounds from GarageBand, sounds like we might have a winner.
however is a good idea. Saves faffing around with BBEdit and NVU and saves paying for DreamWeaver. Have a well designed, easy to use and free, editor. Lots of people don't want to pay for .Mac but get free space from their ISP, but aren't sure how to use it.
Another killer app?

I wonder if something like site builder would more likely be a part of iWork rather than iLife, but I guess we'll see.

site builder? that sound like something you'd make as an add-in for XCode. it is a great idea, but i doubt it'd be a standalone app.

personally, i'd love to see an "Animator" type application. that would be super sweet... like think about it. if you could make small-scale animations quickly and easily - like songs with garageband - people would eat it up! :eek: adding this little piggy, or that little walking lamp to your iMovies would really set iLife apart from any other suite of consumer apps (moreso than it already is of course). :D

Something like Photoshop Elements really would be cool especially with core image capabilities.
