Just like every other Apple release to date, there comes a whole slew of people pissed off about buying a Mac last week and not getting the newest version of iLife, or even more annoying, the latest version of the hardware.
My take, you should be paying attention to the news cycles if you’re worried about getting screwed. Geesh!
But, Apple seems to be a lot nicer than I am!
They’ve put together an upgrade program for the iLife package for anyone who purchased a Mac in the last couple of days and managed to get “screwed” out of the iLife ’09 update.
iLife ’09, a significant upgrade to Apple’s digital lifestyle applications, features updates to iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, and iWeb. If you’ve purchased a qualifying computer on or after January 6, 2009, that does not include iLife ’09, you can upgrade to iLife ’09 for US$9.95 plus tax.
Please check back on January 12, 2009, for additional information.
It’s a good thing I’m not running the show. ;)
