Umm... Ever Heard of Compatibility?

I just discovered the most asinine thing (and yes, I decided to share, for that is the true prerogative of a blogger, no?). Working on a Mac, I can't access AOL Instant Messenger's "Express" Web-based service or Netscape's Web email using... Netscape's browser. AIM and Netscape Web email do, however, work beautifully on Internet Explorer. Oh well, so much for synergy.

    Ummmm, that's because you're using a computer with a non-existent market share? I can't help but laugh every time I hear a Mac user whine about why the world doesn't revolve around Apple. Steve, maybe if you guys comes up with a few more ultra-hip colors, that sentiment will change?

    That's hardly the least of your woes as a non-Win/IE user. For instance, check out GMail with the latest Safari browser:

    "Gmail does not currently support your browser."

    Lame.
