Latest iMac PC from Apple Apple Inc. a well recognized and heard name for eye-catching iPod’s and iPhone gadgets in the recent past has now returned to its heritage –Computers- with a new line of consumer machines and software which aims at winning over more users of Windows-based PCs.

At an event at its corporate headquarters in Silicon Valley on Tuesday, Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs unveiled a sleek new aluminum – and – glass look for its main desktop computer line, the iMac, which reflects the company’s emphasis on design panache. It also introduced a line of consumer software for the Mac for creating home movies, Web pages and other content that Apple strongly believes will further distinguish Macs from rival PCs using Microsoft Corporation’s Windows operating system.

Latest iMac PC from Apple The new iMacs comes with a brushed-aluminum shell and a glass screen, replacing the mostly plastic casting that it used on earlier iMacs. The Apple products which include a new spreadsheet program called numbers that will compete with Microsoft’s Excel program are part of year’s long campaign by apple to convert windows users through spiffy products and high-profile television commercials.

“A lot of Windows users are going to switch because of this stuff” Mr. Jobs said.
It has been noticed that many windows users have switched to Macs however the number is still not clear but the Apple’s Macintosh business has been on rise lately, outpacing industry wide growth in new PC shipments of 13% in the second quarter by nearly three times.
Apple’s new suite of computer software, called iLife’08, showed further signs of growing collaboration between Apple and search-engine giant Google Inc., another Microsoft nemesis. One program in the suite for designing web pages, called iWeb, lets users join Ad-Sense, a Google service that allows users to display advertisements on their websites. Apple and Google have also worked together on mapping and search software for the iPhone, Apple’s new cellular phone. Visist Apple iMac

Now Apple's Safari 3 for Windows Platform

Apple has released a beta version of Safari browser for Windows, this means that you can run Apple Safari browser on Windows XP and Vista. The move by Apple,Which has expanded beyond its Macintosh computer core with iPod media players and the upcoming iPhone, could let the company control how large numbers of people use the Web at a time when services and programs are increasingly Internet based. Apple claming that Safari loads pages up to 2 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2 and it executes JavaScript up to 2.8 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.
11 Reasons for you to install Apple Safari browser on Windows Platform :

  1. Elegant user interface: Safari’s clean, sleek look lets you focus on the web instead of your browser. The browser frame is a mere one pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when you need one. You see no status bar by default — a blue progress bar fills the address field as the page loads — giving you more room to browse and view the web.
  2. Easy bookmarks: Safari makes it easier than ever to manage your bookmarks. One click opens the single-window interface, where you can browse, search, and organize bookmarks.
  3. Pop-up blocking: Safari blocks annoying pop-up ads and pop-under windows that clutter up your desktop and distract you from your browsing. By default, Safari blocks all unprompted new windows. You can open new windows when you click links, but you’ll get no surprises from unexpected, unwanted pop-ups.
  4. Inline Find: Now you can locate any text on any web page using the Find command in Safari. Type a word into the new integrated Find banner under the bookmarks bar, and Safari shows you the found count and highlights matching terms while dimming the page below them.
  5. Tabbed browsing: With tabbed browsing in Safari, you can open and switch between multiple web pages in a single window. Drag and drop your tabs to rearrange them, open one in a new browser window, or merge all your current windows into one tabbed window.
  6. SnapBack: SnapBack lets you instantly snap back to your original search results or to the top level of any website, even after you’ve browsed down a few levels. The SnapBack icon appears in the search field after you click a link in a search results page. Clicking the icon takes you back to the results page and even scrolls to the specific location you last viewed.
  7. Forms AutoFill: Now you need never fill out an online form from scratch. That’s because Safari Forms AutoFill completes online forms with information from your Address Book or from previously completed forms.
  8. Built-in RSS: Scan all the latest news, information, and articles from thousands of websites in one simple-to-read, searchable article list delivered right to you. The built-in RSS (Really Simple Syndication) reader in Safari tells you when new articles or blog posts have been added to your favorite sites.
  9. Resizable text fields: Safari lets you resize text fields on any website, just by grabbing the corner of the field. Resize a field and the web page reflows to make room.
  10. Private browsing: Turn on private browsing and Safari won’t store your Google searches, your cookies, the history of sites you’ve visited, your download history, or information from online forms you’ve filled out.
  11. Security: Now you can enjoy worry-free web browsing on any computer. Apple engineers designed Safari to be secure from day one. Safari uses robust encryption to ensure that your private information stays that way. When you browse a secure site, Safari displays a lock icon in the upper-right corner of the browser. If you want to know more about the credentials of a secure site, click the lock icon and Safari displays detailed information about the site’s security certificate.
