A Mac OS X version of the just-announced NBOR (No Boundaries or Rules) player is slated for release before the end of the year. With the NBOR (pronounced na-BOR) player, you enter NBOR’s “Blackspace environment” where everything—including word processing, desktop publishing, slide show presentations, animation, photo cropping and password protection—is purportedly performed with a simple set of Universal Tools based on ways of doing things we learn as children. NBOR will debut on March 15 for Windows 2000 and XP operating systems.
