    Apple on Thursday added a new product to its online store for customers running Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar: The Mac OS X 10.2.5 Update CD. Information posted to Apple's Web site gives details on what will be fixed in the as yet unreleased Mac OS X 10.2.5 update.

    According to Apple, the update delivers enhanced functionality and improved reliability for the following applications, utilities, services and technologies: Address Book, AirPort, AppleScript, Bluetooth, Classic compatibility, Disk Copy, Disk Utility, Finder, Help Viewer, iChat, Image Capture, IP Firewall, Kerberos, Mail, OpenGL, Print Center, Rendezvous and Sherlock.

    The update also includes improvements to AFP, Web services, dial up connections over PPP and Windows file services, as well as audio, disc recording, graphics, and printing improvements and USB, FireWire and SCSI device compatibility enhancements.

    The update also provides updated security services and includes the latest Security Updates.

    The update CD could be beneficial in labs or other environments where many computers are being used that would make downloading the often large updates from Apple a hassle. The Update CD will install on Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.2.4.

    The cost of the CD is US$19.95 and has an estimated ship time of 1-2 days from the online Apple Store. More information can be found in the Apple Software section of Apple's online store.

    Seeing as most Macs have CD-RW's in them, wouldn't you think you could burn a downloaded copy of it for like $.05 instead of spending $20 on a FREE upgrade? That doesn't make sense. If you are in a lab with computers, most like you have a connection faster than a 56k modem. Even if you had 56k, just let it sit overnight and in the morning you would have it. Seems like a waste of money to me. Damn, if you want me to, I will ship one to you at shipping cost Which is what like $1.50?

    I can already see Emrys in the new "Brown" commercials with the new tagline, "Damn, if you want me to, I'll ship it to you!" LOL! :lol:

    A CD costs about $0.60 to ship cross-country. The cost of the blank disc and packaging probably cost more than shipping. Hence, you shouldn't forget to add a substantial "handling" fee to the offer.
