Rumors say we'll be bidding goodbye to iDVD around November
A new book listing on Amazon’s German web site appeared yesterday and offered some details off the next version of Apple’s iLife suite, which will reportedly arrive this month or next. And apparently iLife '11 will continue to show Apple's disdain of physical media by dropping iDVD.
Could it be that the giant server site that Apple is building in Maiden, North Carolina, will be the replacement for iDVD? Rather than burning DVDs Apple may want us to send movies to the cloud from which they can be accessed almost anywhere.
I still maintain that there's lots of us folks who would rather have physical media than our stuff stored in the cloud. Or at least in addition to cloud storage.
Also, per various reports, iLife ’11 will be 64-bit and will integrate iPhoto more closely with social networks. iWeb, Apple’s web site building app, will be “completely rewritten” and a new unnamed application will make its debut with the new version, according to reports.
