  1. This is great for the person without a computer at home or at work, or for a homeless person. As the demo shows, why do your research in your gorgeous 1600 x 1200 screen powered by a fast computer with broadband connection at fixed cost when you can pay by the second and get instant information on site in your microscreen?

    Anyway, better Apple than Microballs.

  2. Copy the link FIRST!

    Then paste it in the Crash Reporter before sending it off.

    History doesn’t work.

    Macromedia Flash is responsible for it, most likely trying to install spyware.

    Why is it always Flash or JavaScript (made by other companies, not Apple) that make our Mac surfing such a pain in the arse.

    I guess I could get a PC and really torture myself. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”raspberry” style=”border:0;” />

    MDN Word for the day: “Blood.” It’s like blood is what you see come to the faces of Windows PC users when they see the BSOD. (blue screen of death)

  3. MacDude:

    I have had problems with Flash 8 player for some time now, on some sites but not others.

    Did anyone else notice that the new OS 10.4.3 update supposedly addresses some Flash issues? My experince is there was no improvement, but I did not yet attempt to reinstall Flash Player.

  4. Worked fine in Safari 2.02 for me. On a 2.02 side note, I just noticed that opening a bunch of RSS feeds now opens them in only one tab instead of replacing all of them like it does when you open many URL’s as tabs. Glad to see they fixed that.
