The book item could have stemmed from the same rumours that ThinkSecret got fooled by.<br><br>I still believe ThinkSecret published this story to cover their... uhm... tracks.<br><br>Remember, ThinkSecret also claimed that without a doubt, the PowerBooks would not see a SuperDrive in them. The following week, we saw PowerBooks with SuperDrives.<br><br>
"…only after receiving negative e-mail and reading online message board traffic critical of Apple's decision to charge…"<br><br>Don't bother to thank me or margadagio. We saved 50 bucks for you, just send $5-$5 to our accounts and we are settled. Your balance is still $40 in credit: http://www.macminute.com/cgi-bin/wwwthre...rt=all&vc=1<br><br>

heh heh, nice try. <br><br>I bought iLife because I use iDVD regularily to make movies. And I still think that $50 for an upgraded iMovie 3 would have been a deal.<br><br>Let's see<br><br>DV cam corder - $600+<br>blank DVDs - $5 (soon to be $3)<br>blank tapes - $5+<br><br>before iApps and computers<br><br>film for 35mm camera - $4<br>prints made from camera - $4<br>8 mm film for camera<br>chemicals for dark room if you are into photography<br><br>everything costs money<br><br>never mind the time spent making films and such. It's a hobby and rapidly becoming a fav pastime of mine.<br><br>For some reason, software seems to have this stigma attached to it that it should be free - especially if it came with the computer you bought and enjoyed for months.<br><br>Actually if all the complaining about charging for these iApps results in Apple having less money to invest in the development of them I'll definitely pin this on you and marg <br><br>
Ha, ha, that's funny Iraszl. I wondered if you might raise your voice about that thread. ... oh yeah, sure, "my check is in the mail" <br><br>I wonder if that story is true, I can't say that I would be too surprised if it was. Apple is pretty smart about finding out what their loyal customers think. During the keynote Steve even said that he read some of the rumor sites?! I thought that was a very bizarre thing to say. That is, he is very cool and informal on stage, but make no mistake, that is a well thought out presentation. I think he made that comment for more than just a chuckle from the crowd. <br><br>Its funny how different forums respond to threads and subjects such as the one about charging for iApps. It seems to me that his particular Mac forum is NOT the place to be critical of Apple, regardless of the subject. The community here at MM tends to be pretty darn loyal. ([i]I'm not saying that's a bad thing)
