Spymac have made a very bad name for themselves, the only comments here relate to Spymac being bad.

Very Quickly I think I can sumarise our views on spymac. Really, they have had some really bad stuff though. Great though that you get free 25MB email.

I'm no marketing guru, but wouldn't it make sense for Apple to release it's consumer-oriented products before the Christmas buying season, rather than after? Actually, considering we're right in the middle of back-to-school buying season, an iBook update sounds right, even though it would mean my 2 month old 700 mhz 12.1" would no longer be the top of the heap. :(

It's not down, but badly configured routers are bouncing requests into oblivion. Look:

Check out the last 10 hops.

I'm surprised nobody has reported it actually, but I can't see who owns cent.net.
