Ben Sillis reports for Electricpig, “Take a look at this official picture of the Mac App Store, headed to OS X in the new few months. Look a little closer. If we’re not mistaken, it’s stocking the individual iLife apps – iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand – and offering them for sale separately.”
“Want iPhoto but don’t need GarageBand? Now it looks like you might not have to fork out for the whole £45 [US$49] pricetag of iLife 11 to get it,” Sillis reports.
MacDailyNews Take: Whole $49 pricetag? Puleeze. The value iLife delivers for $49 is incredible. That said, consumer choice trumps bundling every time.

MacDailyNews Take: If Apple will be offering iLife apps separately, that is a very good thing. It makes sense as it’s exactly what they’ve done with iWork for the iPad (Pages, Numbers and Keynote for $9.99 each). We are always in favor of letting the customer decide vs. bundling of any kind.
