    iLife 05 - Mac review

    By 24 May 2005

    iLife 05 sees Apple's package of creative applications get an overhaul. We gave the software bundle a spin to see if it really is as creative as Apple profess it to be. For those who don't know, iLife consists of five titles: iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, iTunes...
