MWSF: Tiger to ship ‘long before Longhorn”

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has confirmed that Mac OS X Tiger is on schedule to ship in the first half of the year.

He joked with the Keynote audience at Macworld San Francisco that this would be “long before Longhorn”.

Jobs compared the new Spotlight search feature to desktop search tools from Yahoo and Microsoft, saying: “Because Spotlight is built right into the operating system we can do things that the others can’t.”

“Spotlight is fully integrated. It can do things you can’t do with a tool on the side,” he explained, using the ability of Spotlight to automatically update a search with newly added documents as an example.

Slideshow

Jobs also demonstrated new features that will be available in the new version of the Mac operating system. These included a new slideshow feature incorporated into mail.

The feature means that when emails arrive with a number of images attached it is possible to view these images as a slide show, and there are options for adding images to iPhoto.

Jobs also previewed some of the Widgets that will be available thanks to Dashboard. These included a currency converter, a dictionary, and a stock ticker. Unfortunately during the five minutes that the stock ticker was on the screen the Apple share price went down almost $2.

    Exactly. What is “Good” or “Great” With Halo’s story comes from the books written by Eric Nylund and othe1, around that.nHalo 1 still had a somewhat decent narrative but Halo 2 and up, it just got wo1e with every iteration. Part of it could blame the develope1 for putting all emphasis on online gameplay i1tead of single player but with Destiny, where both are interconnected, the story and narrative is still as bland and bad.nAgain, your character is a faceless, mute Hero that barely gets noticed by othe1 when he comes. Martin O’donnel’s music still gives you a great ambiance but again, his music has done most of the storytelling for Halo but now that he’s been fired, along with bungie’s Soul and that most of the “Elder” employees are gone.nWhat, really, is left of Bungie? The company is wo1e without Microsoft than it was with it.
