    Hi guys,

    Interesting listen as ever.

    Re:- Javascript speeds – Have you guys maybe forgotten about Apples iWork web apps as well as MobileMe for reasons why Apple are keen on Javascript? Seems like a reason that could be expanded upon soon. With Quicktime X arriving in Snow Leopard with the ability for what they call HTTP streaming, are they going to add a service (not necessarily Youtube style) connected to iMovie through Quicktime? There are some massive possibilities here, and I don’t even think we have any idea where Apple might be going with this yet. If it is to have any form of web service, javascript will be it’s base though.

    I have also held off from Safari 4 final, as I couldn’t believe they wouldn’t make any choice available for top or bottom tabs and remove the top ones! Senseless behaviour.

    Re Wave – This seems awesome, but the thought of anyone hacking business accounts for that is far too scary right now. Businesses using that would want to trust their employees to have far more care with security than seems commonplace from my experience.

    with best regards,
