    I think Fr. Roderick’s “announcement” was an April Fool joke. He’s already posted an apology for the upset this has caused. I don’t think his bishop is actually asking him to stop podcasting.

    To celebrate Apple’s anniversary, some guy went to an Apple store and bought 30 macs to distribute to friends and family…incredible!

    One more comment…sorry to be a hog right off the top.

    Personally, I think of The Beatles, Yoko et all rather cool. Apple is pretty cool too! How could these two not get along? Outrageous…

    In the end I guess they have to protect themselves but as I consumer I can’t imagine where the confusion lies if only in the name? Oh well, ok sosumi again and again and again.

    Haven’t listened to this episode yet (iTunes is downloading it) but MacNCell is excellent. I recommend it.

    i can’t believe that hopeless Apple have not done ANYTHING for their 30th birthday!! I’ve been checking the US and Australian websites for 4 days now (seeing as we are 1 day ahead), and nothing.
    I’ve been saving up my cash for 5 months!!

    1. It’s “Safari Image of Doom”.

    2. I don’t know why you characterized it as a flaw in Safari when you later clarify and correctly identify it as an issue with a library that Safari uses. Big difference.

    I think if you go back to Jobs keynote from MacWorld you will find what he said was they would have a lot of special announcements in this their 30th year. I think most people assumed that meant an April 1st announcement. Not a bad assumption, but not exactly what he said.

    I thought I was very careful to say that THEY are calling it a flaw in Safari, didn’t I?
