Angry Apple Ripped me off, again!!!

So yeah I am a BIG fan of apple computers and all their products, recently I upgrade from Panther to Leopard and I love it. It made a great operating software even better, yes it's not perfect, I know, but I love it (the simplicity of it, design, everything). Well today I was playing around trying to edit a video, and guess what??? They took away IMOVIE from it, they want me to buy ILIFE or something to get it again (it used to be free with Panther, now i think it's around 100 bucks, not sure). It's not enough that I pour tons of $$$ into their fuck...ng products already and now they want more. Thats the thing with apple it's a love hate relationship with me and them.

Now I got a dilemma, I can either install the old one, copy the program and reinstall the Leopard and try pasting the program. But I am anticipating apple probably have an override for that or something (they done it before with the Disk Utility). Does anyone know a good FREE video editor for Apple that I could use?

Men more bad news with my computer, today I noticed a nasty crack on the outside of my computer (behind the screen). I have a Macbook, bought like in November of 2005 when it first came out, but It has had a rough life, I dropped it a couple times, and the thing was even in a car accident (I am amazed the thing still runs). So I guess its serve it's purpose, but I still want to get more time out of it. I am waiting for macs new macbook and I dough they are going to come out with a new one soon. I am not crazy about the macbook air, those compact computers always sacrifice things for size.

the mac book air is a cool concept....if you want to send your computer through inter-office mail. in all seriousness, though, i could see that being the future. you don't really need a drive anymore to install software if you have wireless network access and there's things like wireless/bluetooth mice, etc. at this point in time, though, i find it a little silly.

thanks for the info, I know what happened. When I got a new HD I directly installed leopard, so if I install panther and then leopard Ill probably carry all the prior programs that I used to have. I will do that after this semester is done, to lazy to do it now with finals and everything.

Thanks

Both Apple and Microsoft are evil. Abacuses are the only way to go.

I see we have some apple hatters here. I wonder why?

In all I see more apple products each day, specially in the University.

Just over a year ago when the HP laptop died, I gave away the Sony VAIO desktop and we bought 3 MacBooks. I do development with Qt for a living and just am tired of dealing with Microsoft. One look at Vista told me I was not ready to be sold a flashy overweight OS. So we went Mac (aka UNIX!) based. They are awesome... never regreted it. In fact, the Microsoft Office products are better on the Mac.

OK, so I also have an iPhone. Last week I dropped it on the concrete. It still worked but had several cracks. I went in to the Apple store and the guy looked at it, took it in the back, then came back and said it wouldn't be covered - but I could buy a new one. I did not buy a new one - but explained that he could warranty it or I'd get another phone and sell 3 MacBooks on eBay. He instantly said "OK, we'll do it." Wow - how subjective is that. But they do have a dilemna... awesome customer service that may cost them more product than it should. Well, I'm happy.

Haven't upgraded to Leopard yet. I did get VMWare and have XP running on it. I need Logos and BlackBoard for school - oddly Bb is not out for Mac. I use VMWare for work to get RedHat on my MS-Win work laptop and it works good. But this on the Mac has Unity that shows Win apps as if they were right on your OS|X desktop - nice.
