I predict that Tiger is scheduled to be released at just the time that Apple expects sales of iLife 05 to taper off. If I understand correctly, X.1 upgrades include the latest iLife apps, so Apple stops making money off iLife once they start selling the OS X upgrade. Ergo, iLife comes out in advance of the OS X upgrade so Apple can skim some money off the vanguard buyers. (That's just good business practice, in today's market.) Especially with iLife 05 costing $80, if Tiger still only costs $130, then who would buy iLife instead of Tiger? Or might Tiger go up to $160 or even closer to $200? Still, I think the two are linked. What was the timeframe between iLife 04 and Panther? I'll bet the timeframe between iLife 05 and Tiger will be similar. __________________ This is not a sig line.
