    So I open up iPhoto today, and guess what pops up?

    It doesn't really bother me, but I was pretty surprised by it. Has anyone else seen this?

    Yes, I've seen it too. Just check the box that says don't tell me about iLife '05 again and you should be in good shape to not see it again.

    I get annoyed by adware built in to Applications. It is too bad that you get this with QuickTime and now iPhoto. Talk about a lack of quality. :rolleyes:

    Apple needs to avoid this garbage.

    Doesn't bother me as long as I only have to see it once.

    Yeah...I was going to try and say something nice in Apple's defense, but I'm not sure I can. Before they started charging for iLife, this feature was useless because updates were delivered through software update. Now it's just an ad. :( But you can turn it off, and it isn't nearly as annoying as QT. QT kinda irks me...I really think Apple ought to just include QT Pro within the operating system and not charge for it. Or remove the ads.

    I get that every now and then with QuickTime. I wouldn't call it a lack of quality. Doesn't bother me much.
