Apple says that its new OS, Mac OS X version 10.4, or Tiger, contains more than 200 new features and applications. The highlights are Spotlight, a desktop search technology; and Dashboard, a new way to access information using widgets. The OS also allows for videoconferences with other Tiger users.
Probably the key feature of Tiger is its capability to search a hard drive from the desktop--something Windows can't do. To begin a search, simply click on the Spotlight icon in the upper right corner.
Apple's upgraded Safari browser features an RSS reader that can be activated from the address bar. A search box and the article length are displayed in the upper right of the browser window. See additional Tiger screen shots from the CNET slide show.
