Safari on Windows Crashes Too Often

with 6 comments

I’m not much of a fan of Apple softwares on Windows. I like iTunes though, even if it’s a bit bulky. I’ve tried using Safari on Windows for its super pleasing font rendering, aesthetics and, of late, some testing on WebKit/KHTML. However, it crashes just too often to be of any serious use and, of course, doesn’t have any DOM inspector. It has a barely usable JavaScript console though.
On a side-note, I’ve read that Safari can work on Linux under Wine. I’ll give it a try sometime. Now, if only I could run iTunes under Wine 🙂 .

New Mac Ads

with one comment

I'm no Mac user, neither much of an Apple fan. You need to be rich enough to be that. Yet I like all the 'cool'ness surrounding Apple. I use iTunes on Windows and love it, and I use QuickTime (free version of course) and hate it for highjacking my system-tray.

I'm a fan of Apple ads nonetheless (I've almost a gig of those). The latest ones on Apple's Get a Mac page

are great, incredibly irreverent and cleverly produced

as Dave Winer says. Just that you would need QuickTime 7 to play these videos because of the latest H.264 codec, and no updates of old QuickTime would work (You bet, I tried :-)).

[Update] – Another permalink to the video. The older link isn’t working anymore. Apparently, the user has removed the video from YouTube.
