I like how iTunes automatically sorts my playlists alphabetically. However, iPhoto doesn’t do the same thing for my photo albums. I have to manually drag-and-drop each one of my albums into alphabetical order. Is there a way to fix this?
iMovie ’08 lacks the chapter-marker feature found in iMovie ’06, but you can still add chapters to an iMovie ’08 project by using GarageBand.
Purchase a movie from the iTunes Store, or extract a film from a DVD with HandBrake, and you’ll end up with a file containing chapter markers that you can use to skip to specific parts of your video in iTunes, on the Apple TV, or on an iPod. Wouldn’t it be great if you could add such markers to your own home movies too?
If MobileMe is still giving you a headache, you can take solace in the fact that the service is now intertwined with the iLife suite.
Apple released the iLife suite update to combat the usual compatibility issues, and to improve overall performance. But the big fun is when you launch your newly updated apps and see the happy little cloud just waiting to make your world a living hell rock your world.
Online galleries are now MobileMe galleries, and they sport a shiny-happy sun to let you know, everything is gonna be okay.
Anyone remember what kind of box the Lisa came in? Our point exactly. There was a time when Apple product packaging had all the charm of generic cigarette cartons. Today, however, the form and function of Apple packaging matches the panache of the company’s product design - buying and opening a piece of Appleware is an experience in and of itself. So how might Apple skin its products in the future? Using the next version of iLife as a canvas, we asked three local designers to show us some evolutionary paths.
