The iWeb, iMail, iGame and occasionally iPhone

I wanted to get in on the iPhone action as soon as v1 came around, but due to budget constraints, that just wasn’t possible. Shortly after the release of the 3G model, a number of stars aligned and I picked up an 8gig 3G. This has turned out to be one my best tech purchases ever. There were several times this summer where the Google map feature helpfully guided myself and others to an elusive destination, and caught Kodak moments when I didn’t have my camera with me.

Heed not they who bash thy good name Nano

When Apple first released the iPod in 2001 I thought, “wow, those are pretty cool; I’d like to get one of those someday”. But as the years went on, and the models changed, I never did. For one, I’m cheap. Second, I’m picky. I never needed the vast storage of the nice models, and frankly didn’t want to pay the hefty price tag (see? cheap.). Well what about the shuffle you may ask… and I would refer you back to the picky. If I was going to get an iPod, I wanted to get one that I would enjoy. And that required an actual interface. When the first generation Nano’s arrived, I thought ‘aha, here we go’. But alas, it never happened (back to the cheap). Fast forward to 2007. I knew Apple was about to announce new iPod’s in the fall, so I figured now was my chance. I could get the gen 2 Nano for cheap after they announce the Gen 3. Perfect. I’ll finally take the plunge.

Ok, so let’s say you’re doing image replacement on an unordered list. Since we’re all good boys and girls here, we include the actual text inside the link tag and spin it off the left of the screen with text-indent. Well if you’re a Firefox user (or test with it), then you may recall seeing the border generated around the navigation and going off the left of the screen (see below).
