Tiger has been out for a few months now, and the Mac OS X update packs quite a punch. And while many of Tiger’s major new features have been extensively profiled, there’s still plenty to OS X 10.4 that remains hidden from all but the geekiest of Mac users.

Our October 2005 cover story—arriving on a newsstand near you within the next week—exposes some of Tiger’s secrets, from new Widgets to slick features added to Preview. In this latest installment of the Macworld Podcast, I spoke with Contributing Editor Christopher Breen and Senior Editor Rob Griffiths, who both contributed to the October article, about some of Tiger’s finer points.

Also, be sure to watch your RSS reader or Macworld.com for the special edition of the Macworld Podcast later this week with news and analysis following Apple’s Wednesday press event.
