Humor Every now and then, you come across things that make the internet worthwhile. So yeah, there's this whole genitalia length comparing competition going on between Adobe and Apple, where both companies are actually arguing, with straight faces, which of the two is more open (which to me comes across as Mario and Zelda arguing over who's less of a sell-out). Luckily, though, there's the internet to make us laugh.

What I found hilarious is that in the past I needed to show live security camera footage on the iphone.. We had to use the javascript way (other method's weren't support), and after less than an hour, Safari on the iphones/ipod touch would crash.


Amazing how all these anecdotes seem to only appear on forums such as this and never by high profile pundits or blogs. It has all the reliability of, "a friend of a friend of a friend who's uncles wife's sister in law had a problem with Safari crashing which must mean that Apple sucks".

I also love how Apple salespeople have told friends that "OSX is immune against viruses".


Or your friends not listening to the full sentence which would have been something entirely different. I've never come across an Apple employee or a Apple sales person stating that Apple is immune from virus's - the most I have heard is the claim that virus's aren't an issue right now because there are none in the wild (malware isn't a virus - so don't try to be dishonest). The emphasis is on 'right now' because it could change in the future but it is doubtful since almost all the effort is on malware these days and not the traditional virus's I remember back in my Amiga days.

I also love how Steve Jobs thinks flash is only for video.


Where did Steve Jobs state that Flash is only used for video? All his statements point to him noting that Flash is primarily used on an end users desktop to play videos. Can Flash do other things? sure, no one has denied it but the primary reason one has Flash installed in the first place is to watch YouTube, Hulu, Vimeo, LiveLeak and so on.
