Nice - finally a slim AIM client from AOL. It is definitely no frills as the descn says, I like it. No ads, memory usage is pretty slim.

What did HP expect by launching a "Me too!" product with 0 compelling, differentiating factors and at the same price point as the current market leader? It was incredibly dumb. The same fate will hit Playbook and the Streak as well.
Is Apple the only company that can really innovate in this area? I'd love to have a hard decision to make the next time I go buy a tablet.

That screenshot looks pretty ugly. Why would I want big squares made with kid colors all over my desktop?
First thing I do on any fresh Win7 install is disable desktop icons. Who needs those, let alone huge tiles sprawling across the desktop?

if Google can add integration with Project Honeypot, I'm in! I've been using CloudFlare for a couple of months, which does exactly what Page Speed Service does but with the honeypot integration. Only downside is that it costs money if you want more than just the page optimization.

A little refresher on Apple's view of Flash (and Adobe). Though it was written a while back, it's suddenly showing its relevance again. FTA:
"We know from painful experience that letting a third party layer of software come between the platform and the developer ultimately results in sub-standard apps and hinders the enhancement and progress of the platform. If developers grow dependent on third party development libraries and tools, they can only take advantage of platform enhancements if and when the third party chooses to adopt the new features. We cannot be at the mercy of a third party deciding if and when they will make our enhancements available to our developers.
This becomes even worse if the third party is supplying a cross platform development tool. The third party may not adopt enhancements from one platform unless they are available on all of their supported platforms. Hence developers only have access to the lowest common denominator set of features. Again, we cannot accept an outcome where developers are blocked from using our innovations and enhancements because they are not available on our competitor’s platforms.
Flash is a cross platform development tool. It is not Adobe’s goal to help developers write the best iPhone, iPod and iPad apps. It is their goal to help developers write cross platform apps. And Adobe has been painfully slow to adopt enhancements to Apple’s platforms. For example, although Mac OS X has been shipping for almost 10 years now, Adobe just adopted it fully (Cocoa) two weeks ago when they shipped CS5. Adobe was the last major third party developer to fully adopt Mac OS X."

I read the article on adobe.com that lists all of the issues. It's a blatant, intentional 'FU' to Adobe. We're not talking about a small time vendor not being ready for an OS upgrade, we're talking about Adobe. Apple probably gave them about 10 minutes more heads up about Lion than they did the general public.
Apple definitely lost a few brownie points with me on this one.
