Joi Ito's Web

Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

Eeewwww... What ARE YOU THINKING Apple Computer?

I just ordered it anyway, but this is crazy. Microsoft Office is the last thing in the world I'd want to compare iLife with.

I just thought it was in bad taste to bag on Microsoft and then introduce them to demo. All in all a crappy MacWorld. Oh and I think the M$ Office thing comes in a second to naming a piece of software Garage Band. They had to have had meetings...

I think they had too many meetings. ;-p

What's the old saying? "A camel is a horse designed by committee."

I really wish I had a mac. That iLife suite is, well, sweet!

Looks like it solves the problem of iPhoto being slow - that alone would make it worth it.
I am sooo itching to try GarageBand - it has the few features I miss from Soundtrack...

absolutly right!
first i thought it was kind of joke

I see them as opposites. Office is something no one actually wants to use, people use it because they are told to. The iLife apps on the other hand seem to be something that people really want to use.

Perhaps they are speaking of the ubiquity of Office...

The last thing I want is to be stuck with MS Office for the rest of my life!
