"Overall, I found Media Creator to be significantly inferior to the Apple suite. It's harder to use, less consistent in the way it works, less well integrated, and it fails to display the same delicate balance between power and simplicity that is the real strength of the Apple software."

And it costs $99. Kinda puts things in perspective when Mac users complain about having to choose between a $49 version or keeping the free one they already have :)

Where's Roxio's Garageband? Oh wait, they don't have one!! :cool:
And almost as important: Where is Mossberg's mentioning of GarageBand in his article? He forgot it when he described the components of iLife in his introduction.

But this is funny:
I got a puzzling error message that said, "The task selected requires StoryBoard, but it is already running."
... It's like saying "I can't talk to you right now, I need a brain to do that. Oh.... I got a brain!"
