    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!

    Where the heck did the "Does this update make Safari snappier?" meme get it's start anyway?

    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

    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! :p

    Do you guys say it "meem" (rhymes with beam) or "mem" (rhymes with hem)?

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

    Ya ... I've known for a while what the "official" pronunciation is, but I'll be damned if I didn't say "mem" for the longest time. I was just seeing how the peeps on this forum were saying it in their heads while reading threads like this.

    "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.

    CK.
