Mac OS 10.4 aka Tiger arrived early


Tiger arrived a day early. I've actually had the opportunity to play with it for awhile prior to today but for those wondering what the big deal is you can visit Apple's Tiger page to find out more.

In a nutshell:
* Spotlight - Search everything on your Mac fast (files, contacts, e-mail, movies, music, calendars and applications).
* Dashboard - Desktop widgets or mini-applications with 3rd party support (calculators, dictionary, translation, flight info, weather, etc.)
* Many backend updates (CoreImage, CoreAudio, Quicktime, etc)

Starbucks Delocator


Interested in a non-corporate, unique, non-cookiecutter coffee house experience? Look no further, search for a cafe near you at the Starbucks Delocator. For those of you in downtown Indy, the Abbey on Mass. ave. shows up in a search.
