Chapter 10. Introducing iLife

The CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, has spent a lot of time in the past few years talking publicly about making the Mac the center of your digital lifestyle. The introduction of iLife carries this vision forward by bringing together updated versions of the four easy-to-use digital media applications already available from Apple ”iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, and iDVD.

The updates made to these applications include added features that allow you to conveniently cross over from one to another. For instance, you can build a slide show of your digital photographs in iPhoto with accompanying music from your iTunes music library and then, with the click of a button, transfer that slide show to iDVD for finishing touches and writing to disc.


Avid Mac fans know that Steve Jobs makes several public addresses each year to announce new products and computer advancements available from Apple. These events are known as "keynotes," and you can watch them as they happen on the Apple Web site via a streaming QuickTime video feed.

Incidentally, Apple recently released a presentation-building application called "Keynote," which is a competitor for Microsoft's PowerPoint application. In announcing it at a keynote, Steve Jobs said it was originally written just for him to use during his keynote presentations. Isn't that cool?

Now let's take a brief look at the four applications that make up iLife.
