    Hmm, I think these are a few of the "Top Secret" features of Leopard's New iChat! Check out the video demo here:
    Well, they're not a secret anymore!
    Share and share alike
    Remote control takes on a whole new meaning with iChat in Leopard. Thanks to iChat Screen Sharing, you and your buddy can observe and control a single desktop via iChat, making it a cinch to collaborate with colleagues, browse the Web with a friend, or pick the perfect plane seats with your spouse. Share your own desktop or share your buddy’s — you both have complete control at all times. And when you start a Screen Sharing session, iChat automatically initiates an audio chat so you can talk things through while you’re at it.
    Show off (without showing up)
    Why wait for a darkened room and a projector to present vacation photos or Keynote slides? With Leopard, you can do it all remotely, from the comfort of iChat. Use new iChat Theater to present photos from iPhoto, slides from Keynote, or content from any iChat-enabled application with any iChat or AOL AIM buddy. And do it in style — full-screen, accompanied by a video feed of you playing host. iChat’s virtual presentation room makes a big impact.

    I hate to tell you this but I'm fairly confident this information has been posted on for quite some time.... as in since the first time Steve and the gang demoed Leopard (or at least some of it)

    Cool features none the less...

    I now stand somewhat corrected. ;)

    iChat Theater: I had a blonde moment I guess! :( It was in the keynote but I haven't watched it in quite sometime, so I did go back and re-watch it again. I will say that the video preview posted now was more impressive in some ways than the WWDC one. I like Phil :apple: and he's a great guy but a bit goofy and a nice comic relief from what I've seen over the past few years. :D
    iChat Screen Sharing: I guess I missed this one if it's been out for a while. Why? I suppose I didn't expect anything new so I didn't return to Apple's Leopard Sneak Peak page until months later or somehow I hadn't read about it. However, I re-watched the iChat demo and there wasn't even a mention of this feature. So Benjami, I stand a little corrected. ;)
    Sorry guys I'm just getting anxious for all new stuff coming from Mr. Jobs! Yeah, Leopard, iPhone, 8 Core Mac Pro and I wonder if we'll see a 4 Core iMac? ;)

    Yup... the Leopard preview page has been up since WWDC. :) Wonder if we'll even get updates on it before it's actually released.

    Screen Sharing

    It may not be secret or newly posted but the iChat screen sharing looks like it could have a good deal of uses in business. Especially for training purposes, etc.
