  1. I caught this when I went to updates Safari. I hope it works better than Safari does! The second e-mail in my .Mac account opened up as HTML … badly. The text was everywhere – where it was supposed to be as well as over-laying the header information. Is Safari broken? Or was it the e-mail that was mal-formed? Don’t know. It was doomed to be deleted regardless. Which didn’t make the display any less daunting.

  2. Safe and secure on Tiger here.

    My Tiger eats your Leopard, and I have full control over my Firewall.

    Not Leopards half-ass Firewall, where you set it to “no access” and it still has access.

    Thank God for Little Snitch…but EFI…

    Fsck the Trusted Computing DRM schemes, the TPM chip might not be there, but it’s not needed, EFI is the REAL EVIL.

    Who the heck makes a firmware level with it’s own partition on the hard drive, that can contact the internet by itself, read and write to hard drives, block the OS and software calls to the hardware, and can even downgrade the audio channels?

    Someone who doesn’t trust you.

    Intel, Microsoft and the rest of the Trusted Computing Group, which Apple isn’t a part, but has implemented EFI (part of Trusted Computing) before anyone else.

    What’s up Steveo? Sliding the DRM right up our behinds?

    Sure there is a lot of lube, but it’s going in regardless because Apple sells content to sell computers.

    Your Intel based computer is not your own.
