    Correct me if my line of thought is wrong, but I think the biggest scare with that exploit would be that the site you get redirected to could be a clone of an application/site we know and trust. All the more reason to keep an eye on the exact URL you are at at all times.

    Hey Adam! Glad you liked the band I sent you. I noticed you picked one of my favorite songs. Once again, great podcast!

    The interchangeable interface isn’t really all that new. Ericsson (now Sony Ericsson) made phones that work pretty similar a few years ago. I think it was the P900 and P800, where the buttons just push on the touch sensitive display below.

    Loved the tip about holding the option key while opening iTunes to select or create a separate library. I ran home to see if this works with iPhoto–sure enough, it works with iPhoto 6.0.5! Maybe others knew this, but I didn’t. Man, this will make it really easy to maintain different iPhoto libraries for different projects. Thanks, Adam!
