    Got a pair of Sennheiser CX 300-II, great headphones. I swear by Sennheiser now, the best headphones for the price range by far ime...

    maldwyn What?

    Is that it then as far as new shiny things getting announced; no make over on the MacPro, free mobile-me, air update, mac-mini's or that touch pad thing?

    No idea. They've released a new Safari so I guess it's possible that there may be some new stuff coming....

    maldwyn What?

    I lost my bookmarks when I installed that :oops:

    Better get round reimporting them from Firefox. :facepalm:

    Does Safari work with XMarks (with the password feature)?

    Winot BrixtonIan

    It definitely works - but apparently not with password sync (if that's what you meant).

    Blimey. Apple surely seem to be on a mission here:

    On what basis?

    In theory some EU investigation seems possible, but on the otherhand they probably went after Microsoft ina big way due to the huge market share that Windows had, a share that despite all the hype the iPhone is unlikely to achieve. So I dont know.

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    Why? How is this anti competitive given the high level of choice in the smartphone market?

    Hold on, I thought iAds were on mobile content only?

    I can't quite work that article out myself to be honest, and annoyingly, you can't copy and paste it on here.

    @ KE: Apple is creating a restricted and protected space for ad tracking that favours his own product, ergo it's anti-competitive practice because it prevents 3rd parties from accessing information on a like-for-like basis.

    I think there may be some bullshit flying around about Safari Reader. It would help if I knew the technical details about how it determines which part of the site is the actual article - maybe it goes by div tags with certain labels, maybe html5 article tags, maybe something else. Either way I dont expect it to be showing any adverts, those who say it still allows Apples own iAds are mistaken, unless they are simply referring to the fact that Safari reader is not on iphone & ipad at the moment.

    Well at least with Safari reader the first page is initially loaded in full, meaning the ads still get served to you. User then has to press a button to see the article without ads.

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    It's only doing that on the product it owns, it's not doing that on other products from what I can tell.

    Again, how does this restrict choice in the market place when punters can go buy a Web OS, RIM, Windows Series 7 or Android device (and plenty of each too)?

    Why do you think Microsoft got done for including IE in its OS?

    MS's position was different though, they had monopoly on operating systems. Apple does not have monopoly on smartphones - I see what KE is saying
  29. editor

    editor Like an ultra left hatboy on heat

    How did they have a monopoly on OSs? You could buy Mac, Linux etc etc., and were free to install any browser you liked on Windows.

    You dont have to be the only player to have a monopoly.
