What do you mean? Every single web view on iOS uses Safari's renderer. It's against the App Store rules to have your own renderer. The problem is that sure, if you design a website around Safari it'll work everywhere else, but it's a pain in the ass to design it to a 5 year old standard when all the other major browsers support other upgrades, extensions and capabilities that can make code easier/faster/better. It's most apparent when an open standard has replaced an Apple designed one that's inferior, and Apple refuses to change, such as WebSQL/IndexedDB.

The funny thing is, Hillary is the same age as McCaine was when the Democrats were talking about how old he was and we were a heartbeat away from Palin.

I personally would have preferred Palin than Obama, at least she is patriotic. She is also pretty smart, which makes all the smear campaigns of the press pretty funny. But if you prefer a liberal, she obviously isn't the one for you.

See, you can't tip you trolling hand by calling Palin smart...

Privacy wouldn't matter if the country's economy implodes, which is what would have happened under Ron Paul. I'm no huge fan of Obama, but I'm also not dumb enough to think Ron/Rand Paul is the answer to anything but "Which candidate knows nothing about actual economics?"

Yeah, that old doctoring numbers bit... you know, my speedometer doctors numbers, too. It doesn't tell me how fast the axle is turning, it tells me something in miles per hour. They're changing the numbers! Adjusting it for things such as wheel size! It's obviously fake. Just like climate science.
