    Okay, you mentioned the N800 having full flash 9 support, but seemed to miss that it also has a full Mozilla based browser in the OS2008 firmware released in December. MicroB (as the browser was code named and still seems to be known.) The browser is fully Web2.0, handles all kinds of sites (e.g. Facebook, MySpace and Youtube with video playback via flash.)

    more than 50% of the last MacCast was about the iPhone !!!
    I used to love the Maccast but lately there just is a rediculous amount of news on the Jesus Phone and for those that don’t have one this is really irritating.
    Maybe split up an iPhone cast ?

    Hey, just an observation about your discussion of mail steward. Aren’t you effectively doubling your mailbox presence? Don’t recall any mention about the application being an external database, kept off-line or on another drive.. if you keep the archive on your mac, you’re not really buying yourself backup, right? You just duplicate your mailbox files in another application. If a backup is all you intended to create, you’ve certainly got that covered with time machine and super duper.

    The podcast is indeed for Mac geeks like me. I will surely download it actually I m starting to download it now and hope to find useful stuff in it. I like this site because of too many tools about iPhone which I like best . I would like to try BBC make iPlayer Beta available for iPhone. I will update here if I already finished trying this tool.

    Sorry… Mail Steward writes the emails to a MySQL Lite database or a full MySQl database. You are then free to delete the messages out of Mail as they are archived in the local DB. Guess I should have been more clear on that point.
