Apple's Tiger is set to pounce

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.

Dashboard and its widgets appear at the touch of a hot key. Other widgets can be launched from the bottom of the screen.

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.
