The following information summarizes my personal identifying information gathering and dissemination practices for the FBIS of United States Web, I was formerly submitting products through and any other site provided by OSC (collectively, the “Site”). Personal identifying information includes information that can be linked to a specific individual, such as a name, address, phone number, or e-mail address.

I have used the world’s most advanced operating system Mac OS X Tiger and instantly found whatever I was looking for in the Internet. I got information with a single click. Mac OS X Tiger delivers 200+ new features and made it easier than ever to find access and enjoy everything on my computer. Whether any machine is Intel- or PowerPC-based, I enjoyed the use of this unique 21st century innovations than anything else.

Finding anything fast:
Tiger introduces spotlight, the lightning-fast search technology that illuminates every corner of my Mac, displaying results as fast as I type. Search everything on my system: Files, emails, contacts, images, movies, calendars and applications appear instantly. Just as I find intelligence information on intel-tunes by electronic name, country, region, action, information gatherers or analysts, Spotlight results take me way beyond mere filename and location: These include all the metadata inside files - - the “what, when, where, how, why and who” of everything on my Mac - - including the kind of content, the editor, edit history, format, size and many more details.
