So, after my crying and bullshit I did end up “getting” a copy of iLife 06. I still think the Apple Store should honor educational discounts, but at the end of the day, Apple did come through. I just saw some amazing things with the new podcasting capabilities in GarageBand … it is going to be a good solution. The whole iChat integration is sick … get on iChat with a couple people and watch what happens … all I can say is that it is flat out cool. Alright, more later … I’ll put it all through the paces tomorrow on the plane, but all in all it is a major upgrade — even if its just the GarageBand podcasting stuff you are looking at. The other apps are also very nicely done. Sorry for the bark earlier!
