I've never seen the apple one, and I don't know anything helpful, sorry.

From 4.1 it is possible to have a number folder views which could, conceivably 
need more than one screen's display space.  Zooming out would be a quick 
navigation aid, and clicking on the desired group would zoom in on that 
group.  That's probably a very rough-and-ready explanation, as I haven't got 
4.1 yet, so only know what I've read, but it gives you a vague idea.

One of the (near-completed) first-pages of end-user docs will give you links 
to videos as well as articles about the various aspects.  I'd recommend 
viewing a few of them.

A good place to start is http://media.ereslibre.es/2008/06/kde41.ogg (which 
has been out for several weeks now).  It is silent, though, so don't think 
your sound is broken :-)
