Lets you manage your data and works-in-progress in a new and intuitive way
Corkboard works alongside your clipboard-the place things go when you copy or paste them-to hold more data and show you exactly what's going on.
You can drag-and-drop data to Corkboard, where it will be kept for safekeeping between reboots, crashes, quits, and saves. When you need to use the data again, just drag it back out to the program that needs it. Corkboard is fast, simple, and easy.
Time Machine for your train of thought
We've all made that mistake: cut something important so we can move it, and then accidentally copy something else to the clipboard. It's an unfortunate song we've been dancing to for over twenty years. Corkboard helps you break the rhythm.
When you copy something you want to keep, paste it into Corkboard-or better yet, just drag your important data right to Corkboard from almost any application. Even if Corkboard doesn't know how to show that data, it'll still hold onto it for you. Never again do you need to risk losing it all.
Move into your powerhouse.
Corkboard takes full advantage of the technologies in Apple's latest operating system, Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Through Core Animation and Core Image, you get the same fluid, intuitive motion you find in Mac OS X components like Dashboard, Expose, or Time Machine.
Windows in the background soften and blur. If your Mac is a little less powerful, Corkboard automatically scales back these effects to keep everything running smoothly.
If you have a Mac with a PowerPC G5, Intel Core 2 Duo, or Intel Xeon processor, you'll get an extra boost out of Corkboard's 64-bit support. Most applications on Mac OS X live in a 32-bit world, and that's fine, but it's a waste of good microcircuitry if your Mac can do more.
Corkboard is built native from the start for 64-bit processors and their much higher memory capacity. What does this mean for you? You can store that many more clippings just a keystroke away. It's a win-win situation.
Developers shouldn't feel left out in the cold either. Corkboard provides a rich plug-in framework that supports the addition of new data types. You can include Corkboard interpreters in application bundles the same way you include Spotlight importers and Quick Look generators.
