Fun story -- the strap on my laptop case broke the other day and I dented the corner of my MBP and slightly bent the aluminum frame. It's entirely cosmetic, but it still bothers the hell out of me.

The whole web browser debate is kind of laughable. Sure, people can talk about IE having such and such a market share, but how what would it be if it didn't come with the OS? Take my mother for instance. She got an inexpensive Toshiba laptop and didn't even know there were any other web browsers until I explained it to her and told her where to go to get Firefox. How many people get a computer and just assume that IE is the way you get on the internet and don't even know about other browsers? The same goes, to a lesser extent, for a lot of my Mac using friends who just use Safari because it comes with the OS and they don't want to mess with looking for another browser. I use Firefox on both my Macs and on my PC, but that's because I've tried a lot of different browsers and that's the one I prefer. What would the market share for web browsers be if Windows and the Mac OS didn't each have their own browser included, or if there were four or five to choose from when you installed your OS? I would bet that those of us who try different browsers and find the one that works the best are in the minority. In a lot of products, not just computer related things, the product with the largest market share isn't always the best product.
