Apple unleashes the Tiger

Posted on Saturday, April 30 2005 @ 3:05 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Apple today released the new version of its Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" operating system. This is the fifth major update of its Mac OS X starring 200 new features.

One of the main new features is Apple Spotlight, which allows users to search their hard disk for documents, e-mails, music, photographs and other files. Another new feature is Dashboard, a collection of widgets to give Mac users instant access to all kinds of information on the web like the weather, stock prices, movie times, airline flights and more.

But not everyone is happy with Tiger: Tiger Direct for instance sued Apple for infringing its trademark with the new Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger OS. Mac OS X Tiger is available for $129 at Apple's own retail stores, authorized Apple resellers and on Apple's online store.
