Today's the day for Mac OS X Tiger
(10.4). Operating systems have come a long way
(what about the future
?), and Tiger presents a couple of features that are worthy of mention because of their design approach. The approach is to let "tiny-scale developers,"
developers that might not be able to write an entire application, even a small one, develop plug-ins and extensions for core system functionality. Dashboard
has a budding user community (check dashboard exposed
, apple's official gallery
) as does Spotlight
(and not just a way to add filetypes, check this
out!) and Automator
. It's interesting to note that the most hyped features of the new operating system will all have end-user-submitted
extensions and additions making them even more essential.

is for Apple G4 Powerbook owners like me who have blemishes on thier baby's sleek exteriors. I dunno that the fact this product exsits is good or sad, but I know I just bought some and can't wait for it to show up. At least it's not terribly expensive.
