Apple has a sense of humor? Read this....

Look at the word I highlighted here:

Perhaps Safari is as snappy as it's ever going to get, but apparently the Finder is snappier now!

If Steve said "snappier", and they put "snappier" on the website... you can bet they are not being humorous.

"Make it snappy" then becomes a commandment...

I guess I don't see the humor. The finder has a few more steroids. What does this have to do with Safari?

Hey, as long as the Mini DisplayPort is snappy, I'm okay with it.

I get it, basically Jobs told us that "Safari is snappier" when he released the iPhone 3G and was comparing the data speeds between Edge and 3G

I thought that was a nice nod to the fan base.

There's a old meme in the Apple community, saying every update will make Safari snappier, because Steve Jobs said it, so it's funny that they said Finder is snappier on the site.

Memes FTW!

meem, as the second e in meme makes the first one the long sound. It's one of the many splendors of English.

"Meem" still sounds weird out loud to me though ....

Almost, but not quite. "Mème", halfway between "meem" and "maim".

Try it. Go on. Most Australians and Americans need the practice, anyway.

The meme "Safari seems snappier" has been running on MR since Safari was released...
