Wow, That’s Quite a CPU You Have There…

I noticed that when I moved over to the new, shiny Mac Pro that I hadn’t brought over all my digital photos. I’m glad I realized this before whacking the hard drive in the old Windows machine… Anyway, I brought over 2Gb of photos and started importing them into iPhoto. Shortly after it started, I noticed my iconified activity monitor showing activity on all four cores of the CPUs, so I opened it and saw a very large number for CPU percentage for iPhoto. I assume it’s some sort of sum of cpu utilization across the cores, but it looks pretty funny, however they compute it.
