Mac OS X Informit.com's very own Mac Reference Guide, Owen Linzmayer, again risks the slings and arrows of Apple's most ardent admirers with another look at how Tiger rubs him wrong. Take a look at "Ten More Things I Hate About Mac OS X" to see if you recognize any of your own pet peeves. Elsewhere on the same site, this chapter covers the initial installation and setup of Mac OS X Tiger, either as a fresh installation, or as an upgrade from a previous version. Detailed instructions are given to help you set your Mac up just how you want it.

Some of the pings to Apple you see may just be the NTP client updating the system clock. Have you unchecked the time update option in System Prefs? Perhaps that would cut down on some of the calling home, though it is at the expense of some convenience. You could probably do some config file editing and change the NTP server to nist.gov or something less intrusive.
