Leopard Reminds All: Apple Makes Computers, Too

by John Boudreau, San Jose Mercury News

Leopard, more evolutionary than revolutionary, isn't expected to cause the kind of stir that occurred when Apple launched iPhone earlier this year or announced in 2005 it was switching to Intel's microprocessors. But analysts say springing Leopard on the market now will once again allow the CUpertino company to trumpet its consumer-friendly software.

Mac E-Mail Showdown: Which Program Delivers?

by Steve Schwartz, Computerworld

Given Mail's capabilities and ease of use, I wouldn't suggest buying Office just so you can use Entourage unless — like me — you need a good newsreader, lust after its other ocmponents, or have many types of e-mail accounts.

You may find that you prefer it to Mail.
