  1. Ok, now the ads are talking. That’s just plain rude. I’m sitting in a conference room, minding my own business, looking as if I’m paying attention even though I’m reading MDN, and BANG all this crap about Smart Spin comes blaring out of my speakers. It sounds LIKE AN OBNOXIOUS INFO-MERCIAL!!!!! IT WAS EMBARASSING AS HELL!

  2. I have had one experience where a pdf file that I got from a windozer came up blank in preview. I tried it again with adobe and could see the content. I sent a sample to Apple so hopefully they will get on it. Adobe reader is too slow – both launching and viewing.
