Thoughts and links from the crew of the On Computers Radio Show as we wander the Web.
This is definitely big news, but don't make the same mistake I did and rush to download and install Safari on your Windows box. It's beta software and it's untested state really, really shows. Safari for Windows is currently unsuitable for a production machine, judging from my limited experience.There are some legitimate security concerns with regard to Safari on the Mac and I assume these are also valid concerns on Windows. No doubt Apple will address these during this beta stage, but it's another reason not to put this application on a computer whose trouble-free operation is of concern to you.It's all about iTunes and Apple's shift to content provider from computer maker. They're spreading the Apple brand outside of the Mac user base with Safari, just like they did with iTunes. We shall have to see how it works out. For now, though, I'll bet Steve Ballmer is back to throwing chairs again.Jack
Check out my post about it taking 2 hoursto find an exploit. It seems to me that Steve using itunes as an example of their skill with windows programming, didn't impress me. I won't install iTunes, because of its intrusion into my processes. And yes I mean it.
