    On the iLife '06 box the iPhoto inteface is black... not just the background, the buttons and everything! is there a way to set this? it seems weird they would do that if there wasn't a way to make it look that way.

    i believe you have to enter full screen mode to get what your talking about.

    The picture on the box is full screen mode but you can make the usual Library window black too from Preferences. I much prefer it when browsing.

    True, and this is a feature available at least in iPhoto '05, and possibly earlier versions (don't remember).

    This new black theme they have in Aperture and the full screen of iPhoto is pretty damn sleek and sophisticated. I really hope they are testing the waters with this and plan on making it a all around theme for Leopard or something. This whole mish mash of brushed metal and "Mail white" is just making everything look real hokey.

    Realy not a big deal but is quickly becoming annoying. :p

    Seems Apple will start moving certain features onto the keyboard, think of it as an extended hotkey feature. Programmable keyboard, that way you can hit say F3 and have the colour pallet appear, pressing it again will make it disappear. They are extending expose into the iApps. :)

    They implemented it slowly with 10.4, QT (10.4 release), etc.... ;)

    Maybe they will release glossy black Macs at some point in the future, and launch Leopard in black? :D

    *smells a rumor*

    Definately wasn't in '04, as I was running it all last year :(
    But I do love the black interface, hope Apple does use it more in the future.

    Thanks for that!

    It makes iPhoto look a lot more stylish.

    I got it today too, and I have to say that iPhoto '06 is MUCH faster on my PowerBook, and that alone is enough to make it a very welcome upgrade. The fullscreen editing is also really nice. My one gripe with iPhoto and the rest of iLife is Apple's increasing integration of .mac without providing an alternative. I don't feel .mac is a good deal except that Apple forces you to use it. I have my own hosting which is a lot more full-featured and cheaper than .mac, so why can't I use it with iPhoto's Photocasting feature for example?
