    Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2

    I did the Beta 1 thing, it was hard to use, the new Beta is light years ahead, in both functionality and features. I have been using it virtually bug free since the day it was released.

    Reccomend an mp3 player

    What I don't like about ipod is that they are so obviously meant to be disposable. My Zen Touch is an ugly brick, but built to last. There was a story on CBC radio a while back about some enterprising individual who opened an ipod repair shop in Toronto, Apple tried to shut him down, they...

    Reccomend an mp3 player

    I had an ipod a few years back. Battery life was horrible and it did not play nice with windows. I understand they have improved a lot since, but they were well behind Creative back then.

    Reccomend an mp3 player

    You are wrong, at least here in Canada, it is one year, I bought a 3 year extended warranty with my mp3 player. One of Creative's best features is its software, very good
