This Tiger World Premiere brochure was given at Apple stores the evening of the “Tiger,” Mac OS X, version 10.4, operating system’s release. A giveaway accompanied the event. The front of the brochure reads: “Win a PowerBook G4, an iPod, or other prizes. Friday, April 29, 6 p.m. to midnight.”
The back of the brochure has the headline: “Rethought. Reengineered. Reborn.” Several of Tiger’s “over 200 new features” are highlighted below, including: Spotlight, iChat AV, Automator, .Mac, Dashboard, Safari RSS, QuickTime 7, and Mail.
Upon release, Tiger cost $129.95. While Tiger was the current Mac OS, Apple transitioned to Macs with Intel chips. Therefore, Tiger was the first Mac OS to support the Intel architecture on Mac. Tiger was preceded by Mac OS X 10.3 Panther and succeeded by Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

This Apple Learning Interchange shirt features a unique style: it is a button-down pique polo with long sleeves, a front pocket, and a pique knit collar. It features three embroidered details—the words and URL “Apple Learning Interchange www.apple.com/ali” over the front pocket, the word “Author” on the left sleeve, and a black Apple logo on the top-center of the back. The shirt is tan and all embroidery is in black.
The Apple Learning Interchange (ALI) program and website are no longer active. Education World described ALI as “an Internet community for K-12 educators with a large and participatory membership. Apple has gathered databases of lesson-planning units, Internet resources, and Internet-based projects. Also included are discussion forums and chat rooms for educators.”
MacRumors reported that the Apple Learning Interchange shut down in 2010, quoting an inactive Apple link: “For years the Apple Learning Interchange (ALI) has served as an important resource for educators to access great education content, share best practices, and learn more about using technology in the context of teaching and learning. Over the last three years, iTunes U in the iTunes Store has grown to be an even larger education resource.”

iWork is the name of Apple’s productivity suite of software including Keynote, Pages, and Numbers. The first two versions of iWork did not include a spreadsheet option.
iWork was originally referred to as a replacement to AppleWorks, but iWork has never provided a standalone database app and did not include a standalone drawing app (although its draw features are now similar or better than those provided in the AppleWorks Draw component).
As of 2020, at least ten different versions of iWork have been released.
iWork ’05 (released January 2005) included Keynote 2.0 and Pages 1.0. This version was released on CD-ROM.
iWork ’06 (released January 2006) included Keynote 3.0 and Pages 2.0. This version was released on CD-ROM.
iWork ’08 (released August 2007) included Keynote 4.0 and Pages 3.0, and added Numbers 1.0. This version was released on CD-ROM.
iWork ’09 (released January 2009) included Keynote 5.0 and Pages 4.0, and added Numbers 2.0. This version was released on DVD-ROM.
Beginning in 2010 iWork began to be offered for iPad and was released and updated through the Mac App Store.
This is the original box for iWork ’05. Its artwork matches the design concept for iLife ’05 released at the same time, a design concept Apple has not used since these versions.
