Ahhh, it's been a busy week so I thought I'd end with a funny ...Here a funny (well, I found it funny) error message that we caught over at the PC Doc HQ the other day:We waited ...
Steve Jobs wants to kill off Firefox (and Opera) and re-instate a new two-browser regime.
OK, today my rant is on a topic that others have been talking about for a few days now but which nonetheless bugs me and I feel I need to get it off my chest - Where are all the cool Windows Vista Extras we were promised?
Yesterday I received a Yoggie Pico Pro personal security appliance for review. This is a new Linux-based security computer that's the size and shape of a USB flash drive. The idea is that rather than run security apps on your PC, have them all running on the Yoggie instead. Nice idea, but how well does it work in practice?
This morning I wondered if I'd been a little harsh on Apple's latest attempt to "Wow!" Windows users over to Mac. After all, Safari is just in beta and we should all be kind to projects in beta. But when I discovered that Leander Kahney of the Cult of Macintosh had yesterday come out with pretty much the same assessment of Safari for Windows that I did, I'm now wondering whether I wasn't harsh enough on Apple's latest offering.
Yesterday Apple unveiled a public beta of the Safari web browser aimed at Windows XP and Windows Vista users (oh, and Mac OS X 10.4.9 and later). Earlier this year when Apple had sent me a loaner MacBook Pro I'd had the opportunity to use Safari and quite honestly I wasn't all that impressed with it and quickly installed (and used) Firefox instead. Do Windows users really need yet another browser for the Windows platform?
Assuming that Steve Jobs is right and that Apple can shift 10 million iPhones by the end of 2008, that could mean a big juicy target for cyber criminals and malware writers.
Each time I look at something related to the iPhone, I keep coming back to one aspect of the device I don't like - the onscreen keyboard.
What's the best office char that money can buy? Is it the Aeron?
