The little things

Sometimes trivial things get under my skin, like how my computer could be faster than it is. However, the small things life can get me revved up too.

Case in point — The Associated Press has been offering streaming video for months. You may notice it on many newspaper Web sites (like this one). It was a little irksome that the service was offered for Windows Media Player and Internet Explorer for XP — no Macs or people surfing with Firefox allowed.

Although both Firefox and Mac have relatively small marketshare, I would try to find a way to provide the option for those users to access a product.

At long last, the AP managed to switch things up and now their video is available for Mac users and others. Just being able to access this feature is a joy.
