For nearly a decade, iLife was the heart and soul of the Mac. The original Apple Stores were laid out into sections revolving around music and photography. Third-party digital cameras and camcorders graced official Apple product photography, and the Mac slowly became the go-to machine for creatives of all talent levels.
Writing at iMore, Stephen Hackett remembers Apple's Digital Hub strategy. Looking back at all this, it's amazing to recall how much stuff we used to have that's been replaced by a phone with a bunch of apps. I'm glad that I got to witness this change.
