Faithful Macenstein reader Ian was reading CNN today and stumbled across an exclusive CNN story that will likely change mathematics as we know it.
Looks like it’s time to upgrade to OS 9!

I thought this was going to be some sort of binary joke. :-/
I had the same problem on a website yesterday while trying to watch a video. I wish I remembered where it was.
If you open a Flash video in a tab behind the current one, Safari won’t load the Flash plugin until you switch to the tab. Meanwhile some code on the page has erroneously determined that you don’t have a valid version of Flash installed. Reload and you’re good to go. If you go directly to the page then there is no problem.
This is a bug with Firefox and flash. There is a nice article on Cnet about this.
Ikea.com has the same kind of errors on their site.
OMFG. Not having read the prefacing sentence and just curious what the video was I began frantically clicking the image file thinking it wasn’t allowing me to see the “embedded cnn” video.
WTF? I was thinking to myself. Then I read what it said and I thought “hang on I have flash 10 installed and it’s asking me for 9?…….. oh that’s what the story is about. DOH!!!
AH HA! It is ESPN. If you click ESPNTV over to the right of the main column (in Safari), and then click full listings, it says, “Download Flash 8.” And then you can’t even click to view listings without flash. It takes you to the same page. Sad.
hahah don’t worry Kensei, the exact same thing just happened to me. I feel so stupid…
