Fresh off the heels of the latest Leopard screenshot leak are new shots (mirrored via Gizmodo) showing some of Leopard's latest Safari and QuickView tricks. Credit once again to BabyGotMac for the original posting of the screenshots (although the site has once again gone down under the load).

Also out today is word from LoopRumors claiming to have inside information on some of Leopard's "Top Secret" features. According to the site, AppleTV integration is a "certainty", with AppleTV reportedly able to remotely display a Leopard-based Mac's desktop remotely on an HDTV. (Ed Note: similar screen-sharing technology has been previewed in Leopard's version of iChat AV).

Also of note, LoopRumors has claimed that Steve's iPhone demonstration may have been hiding one application that was "too buggy" to show at the time. The site indicates in its most recent posting that this application may have some ties to Leopard to further entice "switchers."

We'll likely see the most impressive of them a week before release...

Still not hearing anything that makes me overly excited about Leopard...

Although Apple offers the iPhone for both PC and Macs, some Leopard specific features are said to be installed in the iPhone, to help 'switch' users to the Macintosh platform.

I can see only one solution for this, when the iPhone gets more important than the Mac its inevitable that osX Leopard will be made available for PC's for compatibility reasons. Luring Windows users into changing computers is a lot harder than run a second OS on there current machine.

I can't see them wanting to tie a consumer electronics device, especially one like a phone, to the Mac. At least, not anymore, after the huge success of the iPod on Windows.

I am excited, but I'm getting bored of waiting to see these top secret features...

I don't really see the benefits of screen sharing via the :apple: TV

i can see Apple incorporating video chat into the iPhone...talking with others on their iPhone as you can see each other or talking with someone at home on their mac with their isight while talking on your iphone.

there wasn't video capabilities on the phone Jobs had, but they never said they weren't going to put that in there before it's release.

I doubt the secret feature is iChat since the camera is on the back of the phone. I mean, I don't really see how that could work...

Apple may well have put the camera on the back temporarily just to throw people off.Meaning come June the camera is actually on the front.
What they showed was a prototype. ;)

Umm what in Leopard makes me want it? Umm not sure. Did I read that it supported read/write to NTFS? That'd be nice for my Bootcamp partition I guess.

Mostly I want an iLife update that makes iCal Outlook/Exchange compatible and and iMail that doesn't keep loosing my signatures. Leopard be damned, iLife better represent. Oh yeah and give me my QT Margins back in iMovie.

You know, I have been a mac zealot since my IIci, but I'd love to see a couple of windows niceties thrown in. The uninstall option in Windows is far superior to our hunt and delete (or third party tool) options. And having Remote Desktop (for a single user) enabled would make my life so much easier. I haven't paid for the Apple solution and the VNC solutions seem so daunting that I haven't bothered. Also I need to hunt for a contextual menu so I can right click (ahem) and choose cut on a file instead of copying and pasting and then going back and deleting. Surely someone has that for me. But yeah that's about all in the Windows world that I miss on my Mac.

For remote desktop on two machines within the same network you can use Chicken on the VNC. Fantastic app and works really well. Give it a go :)

That's plausable. It could certainly use one more application to "balance" it out a bit better:

They're going to integrate OS X with the :apple: TV and the iPhone?

Dammit, there went my chance at starting a profitable third-party software company :mad: :mad: :mad:

I think there are more than one coming and my guesses are:

1) Wiki App
2) News Wiki
3) Chat (not with video - that will be some time down the road)
4) iWork app integration

and many more possibilities....

(Edit to add I think there will be 5 apps that were not shown)

Doesn't 10.4 support the iSub? I know it at least supports SoundSticks, and they are very similar.
