A look at what enhancements to expect in Apple's next-generation operating system, including possible security upgrades.
Leslie Katz leads a team that explores the intersection of tech and culture, plus all manner of awe-inspiring science, from space to AI and archaeology. When she's not smithing words, she's probably playing online word games, tending to her garden or referring to herself in the third person.
Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard makes its official appearance Friday, and Download.com editor Jason Parker joins the podcast to talk about whether it's worth the $29 upgrade fee. Also, CNET News security reporter Elinor Mills examines possible security enhancements that could put the OS on a level playing field with Vista and Windows 7.
That, and other news of the day, on Thursday's CNET News Daily Podcast.
