As you'll soon find out, that sir, is the icon representing Apple's web browser, "Safari" which is now available for Windows.

I run it when I require a second, non-Internet Explorer browser.

In a previous post I had downloaded and installed the Opera browser, but I found it was so much like IE, it turned my stomach, so I un-installed it and went with Safari, which I also run on my Mac as a second browser. Life is good again.

I shall have to do some reading on this Safari. It was some time ago now when you awoke me from my IE slumber and turned me onto Firefox. I love Firefox... what could be so interesting about Safari... you sir have peaked my interest.

It doesn't replace Firefox. But it is a handy "second browser" when you require one.

Please to explain? What types of situations? Maybe I need it and I don't yet know why...

For example, I run two different logins on the same forum - rather than logout & back on as each character, I simply run a second browser. Other times, when I am authoring web pages, I like to view the output in a variety of browsers. Pictures, different types of files, etc - all show up differently in different browsers. Also, I don't running Macromedia Flash on Firefox. So if I come across a site which requires flash, I fire up a second browser, do my business, and close it. BAM!

Any of that sound like you?

I was at the Apple store the other day fondling the new glass and aluminum iMac. That machine is a whole lot of sexy, before you even turn it on.

I am sooo addicted to my satellite radio I can not imagine wanting/needing anything in the iPod lineup. nothing against them, I am just lazy and like to dial up an endless variety of content and never have to deal with downloads. Plus I can listen over the internet when at my computer. I am sooo lazy.

And I am sooooo against anything which advertises, "No Commercials" as a pay service which later has commercials and you continue to pay for the service. Its almost like being ass-raped.

Plus, my tastes are...different. Sure, they have a "All soundtracks all the time" station, but it sucks. I want what I want when I want it. iPod makes that happen for me.

But hey, you know what you like, and it fills that nook, more power to ya. At least you have an opinion on the matter ;)

I just came from Apple's site; I hadn't seen the new iMac's you referred to. They're unbelievable! Good choice.

Mind bending even. How do they get all that good stuff inside? I dont know how they do it and maybe I don,t even care.... as long as they keep doing it. I am going to get CS# at the same time... It will be a quantum leap in computing for me. I'll be lucky to last the winter before I take the plunge... stay tuned.

WTF? You hadn't seen the new iMacs until just then? That news is over a month old.

Seriously.

Seriously. And I do sometimes wish my life were as empty as yours. Alas, it is not.

Those are pretty aren't they?! My friend Chrissy just got a part-time job with Apple as a trainer. Between him and his husband they own or have owned everything Apple sells.

All of a sudden my Mac Mini is looking like a first-gen Macintosh :(
