    With the release of iLife '08 I really hoped Front Row would be seriously updated. Unfortunately it didn't happen, maybe in Leopard?

    I want to be able to browse all the photo events in Front Row similarly to as how they are displayed now in iPhoto. This would make it so much nicer to browse photo's in Front Row imo.

    Also wouldn't it be great if you can browse your albums from iTunes in the same way as you can browse trailers in Front Row. I really don't like coverflow that much but I guess it could also be implemented that way, altough I would prefer the 2d trailer like view.

    Any word on whether these kind of features will see the light in Leopard, or are there already changes to front row in the developers seeds?

    Not sure why you'd see iLife '08 as a time to redo Front Row, since Front Row is part of OS X, not iLife

    youtube

    am hoping for the YouTube channel to come to Front Row 2.0. it's on both the iPhone and ATV. They know it's a good feature as they highlight it in their advertising.

    I'm sure they will add a YouTube channel. As you said Apple has incorporated YouTube into the :apple:TV and iPhone, it only makes sense that they would add this feature to Front Row.

    Also, other people have said that Front Row 2.0 is basically the UI from the :apple:TV. One can assume that because YouTube is part of the :apple:TV it will be part of Front Row.

    basically, the only difference between your :apple:TV and front row will be the hardware it's on

    it's part of FrontRow. You just have to watch a movie with your partner (gf/bf), and make out through the whole movie. It works better if you have people in front of you telling you to shut up :p

    here's hoping they add something worthwhile to YouTube... everytime I look at YouTube I'm reminded of old episodes of that cheesy show Americas Funniest Home Videos... oh well, I guess it pleases the MySpace generation.

    I've seen front row on a leopard beta and I was kind of disappointed that they took the transition out when going into it so it no longer shrinks the desktop and brings in front row, it just pops up front row now. Eye candy sure, but I kind of like it, it always makes people go "Ooooh".

    Tell me about it. I love that transition and hope that they add it back in for the final release version of Front Row 2.0.

    Well OF COURSE they'll throw in transitions in Front Row. It's common sense. Otherwise it'll be feel very unfinished, not to mention very un-Apple. And of course the beta version is going to look unpolished.

    I read somewhere that the transition is still present. The program the person was using to record just didn't record the transition for some reason.
