Dashboard -- Fun Widgets my *&@?!
Dashboard is the dumbest and ugliest thing I have ever seen from Apple -- not to mention a complete rip-off of Konfabulator. Spotlight is a nice addtion but the finder still needs more enhancements than just that (See Cocoatech's "Path Finder" http://www.cocoatech.com/pf.php) Apple take a hint here. They better have more to offer than what they've presented so far to make Tiger worth the upgrade -- which was last rumored as going to cost more money.
p.s. Konfabulator wigets actually look good er.. make that "great" in comparison.
I don't think Apple has Tiger finished as is just waiting a year to sell it
I'm going to take a wild guess that Apple may make some additional enhancements between now and mid-2005
I agree - Tiger is a long way from being finished, just as Panther was when it was demoed at WWDC 2003. However, it looks like Tiger will take longer to complete than Panther did. I wonder if this trend will continue - meaning that in some upcoming WWDC Apple won't have a new Mac OS X ready for us.
Reminds me more of Desk Accessories than Konfabulator.
Either or it's still a rip-off. I guess my point may be better stated this way...
If you're going to make a new feature announcement it shouldn't be of something that's so obvious a rip-off. And, if you are going to rip-off something it should be something useful like Cocoatech's "Path Finder" (I have nothing to to with Path Finder I just think it's a great "useful" product).
I guess we'll see what more they have tucked away once we get closer to the actual release.
Er, Apple made Desk Accessories back in the 80s. I wasn't aware it was possible to "rip-off" your own company.
Hey, I did the vr tour of dashboard. I thought it looked very helpful, and nice. Maybe change the color and hte look a little bit, but I know it will be something I'll use a lot.
What's the difference between Dashboard and running a bunch of little apps? Is this just some kind of Launcher? For that matter, what exactly does Konfabulator do? Is it also a launcher of some sort?
Why don't u just go to the Konfabulator website and find out?
That is very likely. Phil Schiller commented that we just can maintain the current pace. The future release of the OS will be slower.
