    I was having a bit of a think about this .Mac stuff and how Apple need to cut software/internet cost when it occured to me that Apple are charging on the wrong stuff. The need to add costs to the iApps!

    Bascially the idea runs thus:

    Make iPhoto, iTunes, iMovie etc free, then, like Quick Time, offer a "Pro" version.
    For example: iPhoto Pro could contain many more photo editing features. iTunes Pro could have some mixing and sound effects and iMovie Pro (which needs a freshen up anyway) could have more visual effects and better sound editing features.

    They could then charge $20-$30 for iTunes/ iPhoto, perhaps a bit more for iMovie Pro.

    By doing this you keep the casual users happy, give a bit more to those who are "in" to computers, but don't use them professionally, and it means that you could keep @mac.com address free!!!!!

    What do ya think? + any ideas what the "Pro" iApps could feature???

    Apple has made it easy enough to use Photoshop or that other simple photo editer in iPhoto.

    As for iTunes, MAYBE.

    But hell no for iMovie, they already have Cinema Tools, Final Cut, and that new thing...emmmm...Shake!
