iLife ’09 Best In Apple’s Last MacWorld

Apple

Apple‘s last stand at the now-depressed MacWorld Conference was a subdued event. Lowered expectations helped reduce the somewhat lackluster Keynote address.

The 17-inch MacBook Pro was refreshed. Blah.

iTunes is now DRM-free. Blah blah.

iWork is now up to version 2009. And some of it is available online. Blah blah blah.

iLife is now up to version 2009. Yah! A double yah if you’re as excited about the new iPhoto.

At last, the program can now natively handle geotagged photos, either automatically embedded or manually (thanks to Google Maps). It’s a wonder why Apple is so slow at rolling out new features for some of its programs. Granted the programs are great… and free, but still. The “Places” feature is a great way to reduce the need to use third-party applications and keeps all of the photos and usability (now with map-viewing) in iPhoto.

I think more people are interested in the “Faces” feature, which is also cool.

iMovie was also updated…
