“News broke yesterday afternoon that TigerDirect, a Florida based electronics retailer filed suit against Apple for using the name Tiger for 10.4. According to the lawsuit, which was obtained by MacMerc, Tiger Direct believes that with the 10.4 release, Apple has willfuly infringed upon Tiger Direct’s trademarks surrounding the name Tiger.

[UPDATE: 10:39pm: Jeff Harrell is correct, “Safari 2.0 displays PDFs in line automatically, no third-party products required.” We removed our PDF Browser Plugin 2.2 from our Internet Plugins and restarted Safari 2.0 and it does indeed display the .pdf files in the browser. We found out that having the PDF Browser Plugin in the Internet Plugins folder overrides Safari 2.0’s new in line .pdf display ability. Now Safari users can decide which one they’d like to use.]
