    MacBook Pro ad

    That's funny that they're being advertised on myspace, myspace runs so terribly on macs..
    ..at least on my iBook..

    I only noticed myspace running badly on firefox, it runs fine on safari, for me at least. This holds true on my old iBook G4 and on my new Macbook Pro. The only thing that bogs it down would be pages with alot of the transparency... or people with WMP files, cause I didn't install flip4mac yet cause it isn't a universal binary.

    i havent noticed any performance problems in terms of myspace, on either browser. is it editing or viewing? i dont have a myspace myself, but i view my friend's ones a lot.

    I have little trouble using MySpace with my iBook. What problems are common with Macs and MySpace? Actually, theres one of my friends profile which makes Safari crash, but all other profiles are fine.

    Myspace runs fine on Safari. It's the punk kids who think they can code up a storm and add all kinds of unnecessary code to their page so they can have 18 marijuana plants animated at the same time, 14 nude stripper videos playing, and 7 emo rocker songs available to play that make the pages crash a browser.

    This may be a sign that you should stop using myspace. In fact, the entire world should stop using that abortion of a website.

    I was surprised to see the advertisement on MySpace, especially since Adblock is running.

    It's certainly true that MySpace is difficult to view but then, I receive WinNT 4.0 errors quite a lot, and that's over several different servers.

    I also get a stupid notice about the advanced blog editor not being able to run on this operating system/browser yet, when I add a comment to someone else's blog entry, it gives me the advanced editor. :p

    Tom uses a Mac, so it's surprising that things run as poorly as they do, but then, he doesn't have any control over the plug-ins for Mac OS X or users having 20 music videos running all at the same time on their profile page.

    That's an odd look you're giving that cactus. Did it do something to you?

    I have a problem using MySpace. But it isn't browser related--it's more about morals. :p

    Apple Ads on MySpace.com

    Apple's recently put some ads on myspace.com for the Intel iMac and the MacBook Pro; have they ever done something like this before?

    EDIT Apologies for the repeat thread.

    Facebook doesn't allow EVERYONE to join. I wonder why they choose to do that considering the run away success of myspace.

    That's the beauty of it though, its for students alone. Keeps creepy randomers out to an extent. I'm pretty sure Facebook is more popular in Universities thn Myspace. It certainly is where I am. Myspace is nothing here.

    Sweet! :D The more Apple ads, the better!

    As for MySpace and Mac-compatibilty, Safari rarely crashes for me anymore. It used to be really bad, but I think it was those Windows Media videos that were doing it... now everyone uses MySpace's music players.
