QuickTime, 20 years of digital video - I

On December 2, 1991, Apple gave the world the first version of QuickTime, which triggered a technological revolution. At a time when digital video was completely replaced analogue, it is time to render unto Caesar what is his by right.

We imagine perhaps with difficulty, but without QuickTime, we would not have digital terrestrial TV or Blu-ray in every home, as we know it today.

Mac OS

Mac OS X1 is a line of proprietary operating systems developed and marketed by Apple, whose latest version (Mac OS X v10.6, "said Snow Leopard) is installed on all Macintosh computers sold today. Mac OS X is known for its simplicity, reliability and user friendliness. Apple engineers had only one ambition for Snow Leopard: Making a marvel of a prodigy. It is more reactive bottom-up and performance has improved at all levels. It offers new features like Spotlight search customization options and an improved icon view that can browse a document or watch a QuickTime movie.

The sixth version of Mac OS X, even if appearance does not seem to be a real "revolution", just a "big update" of Leopard 10.5. However, major changes under the hood ": deletion of PPC, 64 bit, new Finder, Grand Central Dispatch "," OpenCL " etc.... This is another milestone in the long and sometimes tumultuous development of Mac OS X. OS X is more reliable, smoother, faster! It is always possible to use some good old software like "AppleWorks". SNOW LEOPARD does, however, more on Mac PowerPC processor (G3, G4, G5) and only works INTEL Mac. PPC Mac owners will have breaking the bank to taste the joys of " Snow Leopard."
