The title "Best Product New to Mac OS X" was awarded to Comic Life by Plasq. Simply put, Comic Life allows you to make a series of your digital photographs look like the page of a comic book, complete with thought balloons, captions and a variety of effects (see C.K.'s post). Comic Life is closely integrated with iPhoto and, coolest of all, you can publish your final project as an iPhoto book. It's even more fun than you think it is.
The wildly popular World of Warcraft won Best Entertainment Product. I haven't played this game myself, but I know a couple of people who just love it. It's a Massively Multiplayer Online Game that takes full advantage of Tiger's Open GL.
Medical imaging product
OsiriX works with such devices as MRI, CT, and PET scanners. Used by
radiologists, surgeons, clinicians, scientists, and patients, OsiriX is
100% free and fully open-source. It won the award for "Best Use of Open Source."
"Best Mac OS X Scientific Computing Solution" was awarded to Data Tank, which is used for mathematical modeling and graphics, data mining, and programming. I thought I was a rather geeky guy, but this app is way beyond me. I guess somebody's got to do the math, right?
Silverstorm won the award for "Best Mac OS X Server Solution." SilverStorm's high-performance networking and virtual I/O solutions
combined with Mac OS X host software provide a 10 Gb/sec, low latency
interconnect with multi-protocol support, providing Xserve cluster
inter-process communication, storage and networking access through a
single server connection.
"Best Mac OS X Student Project" is one I always look forward to, as I enjoy seeing what young programmers are thinking of and working on. This year, the award went to GraphClick by Simon Bovet. It's a graph digitizer software which allows to automatically retrieve the
original (x,y)-data from the image of a scanned graph or from a
QuickTime movie. Pretty cool.
That's it for this year. A pretty nice group if I do say so.
