Nerd Alert! Snow Leopard

Hello my fellow Dealyer’s , you friend Spencer here with another installment of “Nerd Alert!”. I hope everyone’s summer is going along smooth; here in Phoenix it is hot, hot, hot! I am excited to cool off this fall with Apples latest operating system “Snow Leopard” it was announce this past June at their World Wide Developers Conference. Snow Leopard is going to be one amazing operating system further dwarfing Microsoft’s endeavors. Let’s take a look into this new development:


Apple states it as “Refined from installation to shutdown”. Their main focus is the refining of already awesome apps and inner workings in the current OS. Striving to make everything run lots faster! Starting with running through every application in 64-bit which means they will be able to take full advantage of all the memory in your Mac, which makes running applications faster.


Open CL in Snow Leopard is a technology that makes it possible for developers to tap the vast computing power currently in the graphics processor and use it for any application. In the case for us designers this is going to make the programs we use even more spectacular to use!

The AirPort item in the menu bar now includes signal strength for all available wireless networks, so you can see which access point has the best signal before selecting it. All-new thesaurus, Snow Leopard includes the Oxford American Writer’s Thesaurus second edition. The Finder will have more and better Spotlight search intelligence more reliable disk eject. Removable sidebar headers, if you remove the items under the Devices, Places, or Search For header in the sidebar, the header will disappear, too. To add it back, simply drag an item into the sidebar.

QuickTime X

Also Apple has pulled out QuickTime X a brand-new version of QuickTime Player, the standalone application used by millions to watch QuickTime-based video. Using the power of the Core Animation technology in Mac OS X, QuickTime Player offers a clean, uncluttered interface with controls that fade out when they’re not needed. And large thumbnail images make navigating chaptered movies simpler than before. With a single click, QuickTime Player can now capture audio or video using the built-in camera and microphone in your Mac. You can easily trim media to the perfect length, then send it to iTunes for syncing to an iPhone, iPod, and Apple TV. You can also use QuickTime Player to publish your media to MobileMe or YouTube — without worrying about codec formats or resolutions.

I know some of this info has gone over some heads, but in plain English this is going to be a very useful and extraordinary OS! Coming September 2009 with every new Mac. Upgrade from Mac OS X Leopard for just $29. For that cheap it is definitely a buy!
