Coming this summer

I got an invitation to Apple's WWDC in the mail yesterday. Okay, it was an invitation to buy a ticket, but still.

There's a lot of fuss over the new iPhone Os update. Some of that, like the inter-phone APIs, is justified. Some of it, like MMS support and cut'n'paste, is so fundamental that it's amazing Apple have the nerve to call them enhancements instead of bug fixes over gaping holes in functionality.

But what I'm waiting for hasn't been mentioned, and probably isn't even in there.

I want my Bluetooth keyboard back.

Slashdot for the fail

It's been a while since I read slashdot on the phone, and today might be the first time I've gotten near the bottom of the page (see previous comments about wifi on buses).

Seems that Safari has problems rendering Slashdot's pages at the moment, in that scrolling causes a redraw of much of the page. When trying to scroll a lot - like from the top of the page to the bottom, where the next page links live - it can't keep up. Several times in a row I've gotten about 3/4 of the way down, then Safari's given up and redrawn from the start. Which it's me back at the top again.

Of course, this wouldn't be necessary if Safari had a scrollbar I could drag.
