At WWDC today, Steve Jobs mentioned one of the 150 new features in Tiger, the next version of Mac OS X. It’s called Spotlight and it sounds a whole heck of a lot like Be File System to me. Has Apple’s investment in Dominic Giampaolo finally paid off? Here’s what Maccentral reports on Spotlight.
Also new is a search technology called “Spotlight” that Jobs said “is years ahead” of Microsoft’s new operating system — it works similarly to the song search technology in iTunes, and can find files and content in standard formats. What’s more, it’s extensible, and works with most current applications. It’s integrated into the Finder, Address Book, Mail and System Preferences.
Unfortunately, I’m not at WWDC, but I know a lot of you are. Can anyone report back with more details?
