iDVD Doesn’t Phone Home

Mike Evangelist:

The iDVD team (which included me) arrived a little late for the next review meeting, having been delayed by a problem setting up our demo machine. As we came into the room, Steve was saying something like ‘how about instrumentation? wouldn’t that work?’ to those who were already there. I had no idea what he was talking about, but my fog cleared quickly. He was asking Avie and Eddie about the concept of including a ‘metering’ function in iDVD that would count how many time the application was launched and how many discs were burned. This data would be totally anonymous; no IP addresses or user names or anything like that, just the number of times launched and the number of discs burned. It would be great information to have, to help validate the decision to push DVD burning technology.
