02Peek.jpgYou may or may not have been aware of the contest going on over at phillryu.com, but regardless it yielded some very interesting results. All I can say is that as always Mac fans are extremely creative and have amazing imaginations when it comes to what an OS can or should do. I’d be willing to bet Apples OS X R&D team will be looking over this stuff and stealing borrowing some of these concepts (lets just hope not everything). You know these are some Mac-worthy innovations because the contest was judged by talented individuals from around the Mac developer and web site community. The contest received over forty entries, so I am sure it was not an easy task to select the 3 winners who all received prize packages worth over USD$1000. The winning screenshots by Eric Patterson, Emmett Stackelberg and Adam Shutsa, as well as runners up by Nathan Ziarek, Reuben Henriques, and Stephen Siciliano are now on display and accompanied by comments by members of the judging panel. So take a look and start daydreaming about your perfect OS X feature.

    I’ve had a thing for making fake OS screenshots for a long time, so I had a lot of fun with the contest. There were some really cool ideas that people came up with, and it brought up a lot of interesting things to think about as far as when Apple themselves will be showing off come WWDC.

    Wow! Those are truly some amazing screenshots! Lets just hope the developers at Apple have taken a gander at those to see what the public really wants.

    Speaking of what people really want, I think the biggest thing Apple has overlooked in OS X is a default CD/DVD burning app. Sure you can burn audio cd’s in iTunes and movies in iDVD, but for those of us who are always burning files onto a CD for clients and for back-up it is a drag to have to go out and buy a third party app to do the task. Not to put down the third party apps, but it sure would be nice to have a nice Apple burning app included out of the box.

    All of that aside, I can’t hardly wait to see just what Tiger is all about! :D
