Live From Macworld: The New iLife and iWork

Apple's Macworld announcements keep rollin' in! Continuing with my earlier coverage, I'm picking up with Phil Schiller's keynote, centering around iLife; so far he's mentioned that new features of iPhoto and iMovie, and now he's moving on to Garageband.

Garageband can now teach you to play an instrument! With the "Learn to play" feature, you can get lessons from artists like Sting and Fall Out Boy on the piano or guitar.

The new iLife is supposed to be available later this month, and ships free on all Macs, but for upgrades will be $79, or $99 for a family pack that can be used on five computers.

iWork '09 is also boasting some new impressive features, if you use your Mac for presentations at work. iWork's Keynote feature will provide themes and organize your slides for you, and you can use your iPhone as a remote to change your slides with the Keynote Remote app for the iPhone (just 99 cents).

Next, Pages and Numbers — the Mac equivalent to Excel and Word, respectively, have an amazing amount of new and beautiful templates, and work together so you can link tables you make in Numbers with docs you make in Pages.

iWork, ready to ship today, is $79 or $99 for a family pack, or $49 if you're buying a new Mac and want to add it in. Since iWork and iLife must use Leopard, Apple is providing a bundle of iWork, iLife, and Leopard called Mac Box Set for $169, available later this month.

Schiller also says that Apple is working on iWork.com (still in beta), which will allow you to share documents online, but edit them offline. iWork.com will be fee based when it launches, but free to sign up for the beta.
