  1. It might be old news, but to have the head of such a golden child like Google to praise Apple so glowingly just adds to the new Apple halo that has appeard under Steve’s leadership.

    This truly is the second golden age of Apple and it’s clear that Microsoft has been clearly caught off guard in a culture of the 90’s where Apple has just sped right by.

  2. How about letting us remove the damn google field?
    I already use google via sogudi so why would i need an additional field to do instant searching? Does anyone know of a way to remove it without modifing the nib?
