  • 10.5.2 is released-Dock Folder list's are back, the Transluscent meu bar can be turned off, and bug fixes galore.
  • A short path down the imaginary 10.6.0- OS X Lynx
  • We discuss the graphics update that came bundled inside 10.5.2, and seems to appear shortly after an install of 10.5.2 is complete
  • The Graphics updates leads us into a discussion of the new update the Apple RAW convertor, which means one thing....
  • Aperture 2.0! Apart from a little "Why did we not here about this at macworld!", the panel likes the update. This update fixes a lot of the UI (User-Interface) Issue's that plagued the previous version, and the RAW convertor has been taken up a notch, to something near the level of the current standard: Adobe Camera RAW
  • Aperture's price has also dropped, to $199 ($99 Upgrade)
  • Rumour talk on the iPhone, could the rumoured SDK allow Flash on the iPhone, and would that allow Adobe AIR, maybe the SDK IS Adobe AIR!
  • Scott claims he has a source on this topic- and is confident that at least Flash will appear on the iPhone
  • Merlin also has a source, his source is at Mcdonalds, and says "Ding! Fries are done!"
