Month of Apple Sales #2: Love the One You're With -- Valentine's Day is this week, reminding us to think of our nearest and dearest. In the Mac world, you needn't pine for new versions of iPhoto, iTunes, iWeb, and GarageBand when you can focus on the iLife '06 versions you have now. If you're quick, you can learn how to send your sweetie an iWeb-created invitation to a romantic viewing of a photo slideshow set to music you composed in GarageBand. But don't geek out too much - follow it up with gourmet chocolates accompanied by soft jazz (we're partial to Green Mountain Chocolates and Abbey Lincoln). To get started, save 60 percent on this bundle of essential information about iPhoto, iTunes, iWeb, and GarageBand. That's 5 ebooks for only $23.18 (regularly $57.95).

  • iPhoto 6: Visual QuickStart Guide
  • Take Control of iWeb
  • Macworld iPod and iTunes Superguide
  • Take Control of Making Music with GarageBand
  • Take Control of Recording with GarageBand

To take advantage of this discount, just purchase from the Month of Apple Sales #2: Love the One You're With page.

And yes, if you want the bundle but already own one of these books, feel free to give your extra copy to a friend. Next week's sale will be another good one (and don't worry - there's no overlap)!
