If it's not worth it for you, then don't buy it.moot said:How about bundling Pages with iLife then it might jut be worth the $79.
it's actually IR (infrared). the built-in isight has an IR receiver, as does (as you can see by looking at the front of it) the Universal Dock, which works with the remote (http://www.apple.com/ipod/accessories.html)macbaseball said:Everyone is saying Front Row and remote, but I just doens't see it happening. I couldn't find how the remote communicates with the computer, but I'm assuming it's something different than the two current wireless technologies that are in other lines. (Bluetooth and 802.11 wireless Internet) I think the remote operates in a different frequency, to some sort of receiver in the computer, to prevent the software from being pirated. If they aren't offering the software to older computers, they probably don't want people to have it yet. Just speculation, but with Apple's stance on piracy, it wouldn't surprise me if this were true.
I agree, iDVD needs a hell of alot better themes.mikemodena said:I really think that Apple will release Front Row in the next iLife package. I don't use iMovie (I'm a FCP guy) but most of my advanced video production (yeah real advanced with imovie) class uses it and I think it could much better rendering. It renders sooooo slow. Also, I would like to see some better iDVD themes, maybe more garageband loops, and I think that's about it for my wishlist.
So if it's infrared does that mean they could add it to existing computers, or would there has to be some sort of an awkward USB device or something.asherman13 said:

An alternative to providing it in iLife, they could add it to the Cinema display to get people to buy the Apple display instead of the Dell one. That would give them another advantage over Dell, the first being appearance. Just put the software in the box.
That would work for me. I need an excuse for dual displays...
