Re: What's Your Favorite Website?

I tend to spend time at financial sites like CNBC.com and yahoo finance. Actually lots of news and science likes from just plain old Yahoo.com. And then I spend a lot of time on a few time sink games like World of Warcraft (Battlenet.com). I would nominate both Flickr and stumble upon.com for inclus...

Adobe substitute? workaround?

Yahoo mail notices to upgrade browser

We have used yahoo mail for years. Now on iPad. Lately they have been sending a general notice to upgrade browsers, specifically refer to Safari 5. 1. I can't find anything on iPad saying what version of Safari it is running. Our OS on Mac is up to date and iOS has been updated. No new software upda...
