Wednesday, April 20, 2005 Tiger's leap: Amazing features that we could see in OSX Tiger's future releases, based on a slashdotter's experience [Apple employee, supposedly]

I saw the demo a while back on OSX Tiger features. Mindblowing. If only their platform was more accesible and there was *affordable* software for the MAC platform. Each piece of software is ridiculously expensive for the Mac.
I'll let you know next week about the Tiger... yes, I got my powerbook last weekend and its awesome.

Wow. Manoj, sure wud love to hear your take. [powerbook spec?]
Ranga, think it's got more to do with PC's pampering. Apart from the initial investment on the Apple hardware, is it any different from setting up a stand-alone PC (copyrighted s/w, i mean)?
pradeep, you are absolutely right. Apple is not so expensive as everyone thinks. The only other laptop that I liked was the panasonic toughbook and they were not cheap either and it comes loaded only with windowsXP.

Spec-list says, "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 with 64MB of DDR SDRAM".
I'm not a gaming person...i might not even know the difference. but i will try out GarageBand and iDVD sometime and see how good it is. iTunes and iPhotos were very easy to use.

Gaming helps you benchmark the capability of a machine. FarCry which is a good highend graphics intensive game (available for $20 with free online gameplay) is a good one to test and try. And the game is good too.
Farcry looks interesting. I see a PS2 version releasing this September.
I played the demo of the game and it rocks. Just that PC requirements are heavy. The game is a FPS that got so populat that Ubisoft is publishing a PS2/Xbox port in Fall. Hopefully I will move consoles by the end of the year to play it.
