Comment Re:Flash is old-school ajax (Score 1) 468

What about flash sites that degrade to html for lynx, etc.? Believe it or not, such things *are* possible.

Plus, when I talk about browser independence I was referring more to look-and-feel being exactly the same on other browsers, the way pdf is. If you use xhtml/css you always run into versioning issues anyway so either way you lose sometimes.

But keep insulting me, I won't take it too personally...

Mac Security Alarm System 243

RogueAce writes "A program named iAlertU sounds a screeching siren when someone attempts to steal your Macbook. Thanks to the sudden motion drop sensors that Macs use to park the hard drive, iAlertU can detect when your Macbook is being picked up, moved or closed. Also, by using the handy remote that comes with the Macbook, you can turn the alarm on and off like you would a car, which the Macbook responds to by making the all too familiar chirping sound and a flash and flicker of the screen. The code behind it is from a guy named Christian Kleins."
