So in my Apple-loving excitement, I bought the new iLife ’08 suite the day it became available to me in Australia.
Installed with no probs, but then I tried opening the new and cool looking iMovie (I’d watched the keynote presentation – so I was a pro operator already) and it opened… And then a spinny thing went spin spin, annnnnnnnnd then CRASH.
Cool. Very cool. And it wouldn’t (and still won’t) open at all. Maybe I’ll try restarting my computer and all that crap, but that was a bit of a doozy!
At least iPhoto worked flawlessly. I must say, with the new ‘skimming’ feature and ‘Events’ management of the photo’s, they have made a worthy update (so far, so good). Check it out ‘skimming’ of ‘Events’ in action here.
I opened iWeb – templates look really cool – but that’s as far as I went. Back to working on this wordpress installation!
And welcome! To the new mac website/blog/one-day-to-be-a-podcast.
And just so we get off on the right foot, I love you.
Hoorah! The update to iMovie ’08 fixed my crashing woes. But damn! When you import new footage into the new iMovie, you have to wait for what to me is too long, for the program to prepare the ability to ‘skim’ the thumbnail of the footage. Sorta takes half the magic out of the whole process.
“Here! Let me turn your water and flour into a wonderful loaf of bread! Just gimme an hour or two.”
If Jesus had pulled a stunt like that when providing fishes and shit for the people (“Has anyone got a fishing rod?? Anyone!?”) he would have been eaten instead! Apple has a little way to go before I consider bowing to the east every half hour in honour of their products…
