This Friday, April 29th, Apple releases another major upgrade to their Mac OS X operating system. The new version will include two really great features: Spotlight and Dashboard. Spotlight is a feature that gives you a google-type search for all files on your computer. It searches through text files, emails, metadata, etc…on the fly. This is probably the single feature that I’m the most excited about. The dashboard is a widgets-type application similar to Konfabulator that allows you to have weather, stock, etc all at your fingertips quickly. This may not be the best description of the features of Tiger, so check out some of the resources:
