    I hope this has not been posted somewhere but everytime I was doing a search it would tell me I had less than the needed 3 words to search on. As a point of interest, I searched "iDVD 3 download Apple release"

    I wanted to know when I can update my iDVD to v.3 via download. I have some DVDs to make for customers and since iDVD now supports such features as chapter markers I don't see why I would need DVD Studio Pro (these DVDs don't have any "special" feautres, just movie and chapters).

    iDVD 3 will NOT be available for download. Only iTunes 3, iMovie 3, and iPhoto 2 will be available for download. In order for ANYONE to obtain iDVD 3, you must purchase iLife, which includes a CD with iTunes 3, iMovie 3, and iPhoto 2; Plus it includes a DVD that contains iDVD 3.

    This is what I have to say to that:
    :p

    Lucky I work in the Apple area, I'm not paying that for such a product.

    .Mac I am happy to pay for but .Mac and iLife... :p

    50 dollars is chump change for these products. These are the best apps in the digital media category money can buy on the mac or windows side. but go ahead, steal the software and dont support your company. i hope you reconsider your actions because 50 dollars is nothing for the applicatin suite.

    rrrriiiiggghhhhttt.... how am I stealing the software???

    You don't work in the Apple arena, do you?!

    We get just about everything for free... if the business gets a copy, all the employees are allowed to install that copy on their machine.

    As for .Mac, it came free from Apple for all who did the Learn And Earn course.

    No stealing here... all I am doing is supporting their product by selling it for them.

    As for $US50 for iLife might not be a lot but I could not imagine not working here any more and having to pay $50 for iLife, $129 for X.2 and $100 for .Mac just after spending $2799 for this PowerBook

    I asked a simple question, if someone is going to be an ass towards me, they are going to get it back.

    You are the only person who addressed the question but you did it while having a dribble about stealing.

    It will not be available for download because it is VERY large. In the 100's of MB here. It would cost Apple a fortune for the bandwidth to provide that as a download. You are paying for the upgrade, the production costs and simply because Apple chose to do it that way. ;)

    At most your company is allowed to share with 5 people(Family pack) and that is pushing it. It's legal to have it on numerous computers at your job site, but it stays there. When you take it home it strays from the "family pack" installation.

    Hey, let's be friends.

    Anyway, Apple charges for iDVD because it is a full DVD (mentioned above). They have never allowed it for d/l, to my knowledge. This is reasonable, as Apple would waste bandwidth faster than they could send the bills to accounting if they allowed everyone with a network connection to go after it. It stinks. But it's fair.

    Now let's all kiss and make up. 8)

    GREAT point... I just checked my iDVD (uncompressed, obviously) and it is over 800MB.

    I agree with paying for many things from Apple to help fund them in the slum but they need to watch out because they are starting to push it. Could you imagine if you have to pay for ALL of the iApps alongside everything else.

    Re: freebie shmeebie

    Oh, we are not allowed to take ANY home but I am allowed to have it on my PowerBook. The idea is that I will promote it to my customers no matter where I am, which happens, but obviously I am going to use it at home when I take my PowerBook with me. I am CERTAIN Apple would not care about that. As if they would make me pay for it because I have it on a laptop, esp. when I sell it for them.

    As mentioned, though, I could not install it on a home machine, only a work machine.

    I can't take a screen shot of something that doesn't exist, but I can give you a screen shot telling you when and how you can get iDVD 3.

    haha oops, i left out the "f" in shift and it blocked it out because it thought i said, well you know.if you hit apple+shift+3 it will take a snap shot of the entire screen. if you hit apple+shift+4 you can take a snap shot of a selected area. plus if you hit apple+shift+4 and then hit space bar you can take picture of individual objects. you just have to use it to get what im saying. i use this all the time, it makes grab pointless.
