January 7, 2003

Have you been screwed by Ford lately?

Our car has been having transmission problems, and it’s in the shop right now. We just got a call that they’ll have to keep it overnight because they’re not sure what’s wrong with it.

On an unrelated note, I’m starting to get this knotted feeling of dread in the bottom of my belly. Any idea why?

Safari

The relatively obscure Konqueror browser just got a hell of a lot more important, as Apple today unleashed “Safari”, their new web browser, based on the Konqueror core. Seems like an odd choice to me, and I’m especially curious why they didn’t go with a Mozilla core if they wanted an open-source platform. Too many AOL politics involved, maybe? I don’t know.

Mark Pilgrim already has a laundry list of complaints for the new browser. Nothing’s perfect, I guess, even when it has the holy mark of Apple emblazoned on it. Plus, remember, it’s still a beta version.

Not that I’ll get to play with, though. The only Mac I have access to is the demo at the local CompUSA. And for some reason I don’t see a Windows port of Safari waiting in the wings.
