Sorry raskren that this article is about OS X, we all know how much you hate it, but every time an update goes beta and is released, we do a story. Its news so get over it If you have something useful to post, then feel free to do so.

I would like to see speed increase to iPhoto, when you have a lot of files like myself in there, especially on an aging system (again like myself), it slows down a bit. Hopefully they will do a bluetooth update too, my mighty mouse has trouble connecting at times...

Ehh, i don't really see how it's news (when it's released to everybody, then yeah)

iPhoto 06 is just dog slow really, iPhoto 05 was much faster (on my system anyway)

And iTunes needs a re-write, let's hope that comes with Leopard though.

You hit the nail on the head with iPhoto and iTunes, I hope both are a bit faster after this update.

Just a quick side note though, is it not news when a new Vista beta is released? I mean it isn't released to everyone unless you pirate it yet no one complains when that is put up. Understandably so considering that its going to be an update for millions later on down the road. The same applies here. It informs people that the parent company of a product that they use is in the process of producing an update to their product. That is news regardless of the company.

Well, for one thing, the site is called NeoWIN, not NeoMAC?

And unless you're completely oblivious, it's easy to see the site has evolved far beyond just MS coverage.
