    Way better iMovie. That was a big disappointment when they started offering previous versions for free cause they were better. :(

    The possibility for iWeb to download changes from a website. So someone can publish an iPhone app to post blogs from an iPhone.

    You already can. :) There's also a Facebook plugin that I use all the time. Very useful.

    a way to tag people in iPhoto. Using comments is annoying.

    Cool, thanks for that. Last time I looked (a few months back) this was only possible by buying an app. Result :)

    EDIT: Or do you have to pay for this ?

    I have no idea, I just did a search on Google and that popped up. I knew it was possible for Facebook, so why not Flickr? If that one is Shareware only, there's bound to be a free alternative.

    Do you mean like a sticky note on the photo itself, connecting the tag to the actual person and not the photo? I'd like tagging of objects (like Macs) as well, and a tag library too.

    I thought iMovie 06 and below were really intuitive and easy and powerful, I just don't "get" iMovie 08. Honestly, I haven't used it much because I find it intimidating, and I can't figure out how to do basic things like the selecting the placement of an audio track. At the same time, people have said that it is easier but less powerful, so maybe in an attempt to make it easier it just looks harder to people who are used to the older versions.

    I think iWeb should be more useful. I'd love an app for the Mac that has the functionality of like Adobe GoLive 4. I "got" that app. I've dabbled with DreamWeaver, and it's too much for me. And iWeb is too little.

    Never touch GarageBand or iDVD.

    For iTunes, umm, this isn't too relevant to iLife, but give us more iTunes plus music and HD movie rentals, and HD TV season rentals. I just mention that since I can't think of any new software features for iTunes.

    There's a thread about it here if you're interested.

    And I agree with you on the iMovie part. Those who are already used to iMovie classic would find it harder to adapt to a new interface than to simply use what they've always used. New users, however, wouldn't have the adaptation or preconceived knowledge problems.
