Tipping the Tiger

Now that Tiger, Apple new version of Mac OS, has been released, those of us with developer licences can talk about the cool new stuff, and there are more new articles and websites to read this weekend than ever before.

Anyone with an interest in the underlying techie details as well as the visible might enjoy John Siracusa’s 21-page review at Ars Technica.

A very significant new feature for me is not much talked about – the ability, at last, to rotate external displays and use them in portrait mode. This is a godsend for anyone who spends a lot of time reading or writing pages of text. I’m not sure whether it’s supported on all Macs or just those with certain graphics chips, but it works on my PowerBook.
