New iPhone, iPod Touch upgrades; iLife 09 debuts

On the same day that computer giant Apple released its new iLife '09 software, the company dropped an update to the iPhone and iPod touch.

The company, which released the patches Tuesday, says update 2.2.1 improves the stability of the Safari Internet browswer and corrects an issue where photos do not display correctly.

iLife '09 is Apple's photo, movie and Web site creation suite.

The software can organize your photos based on the actual faces that appear in them, and shares to Facebook with one click. iMovie includes themes to help make movies easily. Apple promises its included GarageBand '09 software will help teach you to play an instrument or create a song, and the Web site creation tool has been refined to be easier to use. Users of Apple's MobileMe service, which pushes e-mail and calendar appointments to a user's mobile phone and computer simultaneously, will have access to 20 gigabytes of storage space online.

Are they going to charge us $9.99 for this update, too?
