Go All-Digital

Supporting the global environment we supply all software as digital downloads only. How can you participate?

We all can be part of the solution. Digital downloads are the "green" answer to demanding fewer resources for your computer's needs. What you get is software with an environmental footprint of zero while still staying up-to-date.

Digital downloads are one part of the larger trend in making our lives - both professional and personal - cleaner, more efficient, and better. Continue reading to see what else you can do to improve your green computing.

Limit screen-saver use. A screen saver does not save energy. In fact, more often than not, a screen saver not only will draw power for the monitor, but also will keep the CPU from shutting down. Instead, set your computer to turn off the monitor first, then go into standby mode after a longer period of inactivity.

Disconnect your Virtual Private Network (VPN) when not actively using your corporate network. Being connected may limit your system's ability to enter standby mode.

Many popular computer games and other third party software packages that run in the background will not allow the computer to go to sleep - even if they are paused or the active window is minimized.

Some web sites or pages that have active banners and or animated advertisements will not allow the computer to sleep on its own and must be closed, or the computer put manually into a sleep state.

Enabled power management to place your monitor, hard drives and computer into a low-power "sleep" mode after a period of inactivity.

Monitor/display sleep: Turn off after 15 minutes or less

Turn off hard drives/hard disk sleep: 15 minutes or less

System standby/sleep: After 30 minutes or less

Advanced users may wish to establish multiple power schemes to address different usage models. For example, you can create a power scheme for playing music CDs that shuts off your hard drive and monitor immediately, but never puts your system into standby mode.

To further reduce power consumption, turn off computing and peripheral devices that are not being used or being used for an extended period of time such as overnight.

Plug all your electronics into one surge protector, so you can easily switch them all off when you leave the room or go to sleep. Most power supplies (such as your cell phone charger) continue to draw power and generate heat even when not attached to a device.

Apple iLife '08 applications have elegant interfaces, integrate well, and tie into .Mac, iTunes, and YouTube accounts. iPhoto nicely organizes pictures by events, iMovie is drag-and-drop simple, and GarageBand offers more controls

Originally created as part of Apple's digital hub strategy as a single, user-friendly repository for digital media, iLife has grown into a creative suite of applications that make it easy for anyone to turn his digital memories into books, movies and DVDs, Web sites and beyond. It has become a staple for Mac users, shipping with every new Macintosh computer and offering tools for managing and editing digital photos, video and music

The components that have seen the most changes are iMovie and iPhoto, so we'll start with those applications. GarageBand, iWeb and iDVD have all seen improvements as well, though -- some major, some minor -- and we'll get to those in turn


Features

iMovie IMovie was one of the first iLife applications, and it was revolutionary right from the start, providing an easy way to capture and edit digital video. Not only has iMovie always been so intuitive that "user-friendly" seems an understatement, it has always offered professional-looking options for titles, transitions and other effects
iPhoto IPhoto has long been a powerful product for organizing, performing minor image adjustments to and sharing digital photos in a variety of ways. IPhoto '08, a.k.a. iPhoto 7, provides new organizational tools, enhanced editing options, and more ways to print and share photos
iWeb Since its release in iLife '06, iWeb has provided users with an easy way to create high-end-looking Web sites with minimal effort. IWeb '08, or iWeb 2.0, offers a number of advantages over iWeb 1.1, chief among them the ability to add snippets of HTML code. The lack of a method for either directly modifying HTML in iWeb pages or being able to drop in a small amount of code was previously a major complaint of many iWeb users
iDVD Given the improvements and new features in the other iLife applications, iDVD's update looks almost boring at first. Although there is no massive shift in interface or functionality, Apple has included a number of new themes and a number of new buttons. The number and style of buttons in the previous version was limited and largely unchanged from early iDVD releases. This new version offers a wider range of styles, shapes and other options for DVD buttons. While not as exciting as iMovie's new interface or iWeb's ability to add Web widgets, this is a welcome addition to iLife
GarageBand GarageBand has always been a great tool for anyone interested in making music (or podcasts). It provides novice and experienced musical talents with recording, editing and mixing tools for both live instruments and recordings and for attached MIDI devices and virtual software instruments. GarageBand in iLife '08 offers some very cool new features, and the one with broadest appeal is aimed at those Mac owners who have limited or even no musical or audio know-how

What customers say

Johnny Atle, NO
I'm very happy with the way everything went during buying and installation. Everything went smooth and the guidance video was very helpful and easy to understand.
Kenneth, US
As long as the buyer carefully reads the download and installation instructions there should be no problems. Once installed the Access 2010 that I purchases interfaced seamlessly with my other Office 2010 programs.
Tommie, KR
I was surprised. I did not expect this really great service. Thank you very much.
