Mac OS X Tiger retail box
Apple today revealed its new Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" retail packaging in a letter to customers. In Wednesday's edition of an Apple newsletter, Apple unveiled the retail packaging for its next-generation "Tiger" operating system. Differing from the previous tiger-like striped graphics it touted at WWDC 2004, the retail box is pitch black with a shiny platinum "X" that extends the full length of the packaging--complete with shadow effects that offer the illusion that it is extending off the box. The newsletter, again, reiterates that Apple expects to ship Mac OS X Tiger "during the first half of 2005."
