Hi all, I'm speaking mainly an iMovie user here and my concerns about what Apple may be doing with it in the future... Firstly...the rumours...it would seem that iMovie 3 will be G4 Optimised, possibly only running on Jaguar and with .Mac support as an integral new feature for web publishing etc... My concerns about this? I have an iBook, I bought it mainly to run iMovie 2 that was supplied with it....of course I would love a G4 based machine but as an Apple Consumer rather than professional, it somewhat irks me that a machine I spent £1400 a year ago is quickly becoming redundant with Apple's new releases...things move on I know, but my PC is 4 years old and still does what I ask of it...all this despite Apple purists claims that an Apple will last longer. Jaguar and.Mac support in iMovie 3 though are far scarier propositions...if my memory serves me correctly, Apple charged for iMovie 2 for those who didnt have it bundled wiht a machine...so, to use iMovie 3 fully I would need to spend £100ish on Jaguar (that won't run really it properly) , £100 a year on .Mac and maybe £30 for an iMovie update... Apple have said that iMovie is the product that kick-started the digital hub strategy, and I'm sure its one of the most widely used of all iApps...my point...is Apple seriously going to charge people £230ish to use a consumer product? Obviously, this is all based on rumour and the fact that Jaguar is a necessary update etc that the Mac world needs...I'm just worried that Apple's revenue enhancing strategies (i.e. must have Jaguar, large .Mac integration) may damage the whole idea of the iApp...I'm not against paying for things, but it would seem to me that whilst a year ago my iBooks came with everything I needed, if I was to buy a new Mac today I fear I would need to buy a .Mac licence and iApp upgrades etc just to get the digital hub...and I think it's ruining the strategy.
