iPoto was getting far too slow - now it's super-fast!

Quicktime Pro is, and always will be, a stupid idea.

Butwe're not talking about MS Office, or Windows - it's not that expensive to upgrade, and I don't mind giving Apple some cash every now and then to pay for all their spangly R&D.; Eh.

Quicktime pro has some very nice features for the price! £30 quid gives you a lot of control over video and audio formats.

Yeah, but I remember the good ol' days when QuickTime Player could show things in full screen without having to pay an extra anything. It's not like it's locked out - things like Xinema can fullscreen just fine - it's something they've taken away so they can charge more.

And I know that's not the only thing Pro gives you. It just seems like a cheek.

It's a touch more forgiving at opening files that have been encoded in strange ways..... (not the prison)
