When you buy a new Mac from Apple Computer Inc. and fire up the Safari Web browser that’s already installed, up to now the first thing you’ve seen has been a “livepage” that features updated content from Apple and AOL’s Netscape. That page — and its URL, now redirect to a new location —
http://www.apple.com/startpage/. The new Apple start page features a look and feel that’s more consistent with Apple’s own Web site design, and sports links to more Apple-related content, too.
The new start page features links to articles posted on Apple’s Hot News page, and includes sidebars with links to hot new releases at the iTunes Music Store. Information is provided about .Mac, Apple’s subscription-based Internet service, and lists of upcoming events where Apple is schedule to participate are listed. The page includes links to other feature content on Apple’s Web site, such as how Macs are being used in business and sci-tech markets, Mac game features and more. Links to hot Mac software downloads are also provided.
