Talking DAB and the future of radio

DJL

Pirates

I can't see there ever being an FM "switch off" all the while there are still pirate stations out there...

Also, like others here, I think internet radio will quickly overtake DAB (if it hasnt already) especially now that mobile broadband is here and this will solve all the quality/reception problems once and for all.

Mozilla catches half of Firefox users running insecure Flash

Update success?

Having read the original article on here I instantly clicked the update link when I appeared (if I ahdnt read the artciel I probably would have missed it due to always seeing that oage on every upgrade...)

I installed from the RPM provided but next time I started firefox - same message.

So now I dont know whether the update failed (I tried again and was told it was already installed) or whether the version detection is not working right?

Maybe I have 2 versions installed and firefox is somehow getting hold of the wrong version?

I originally installed firefox from the SUSE repositories but I had to get firefox 3.5 from a binary package (which sits in my home directory) - so I have 2 versions of firefox coexisting happily - maybe this is why? This being the case it should be easily solved by having firefox prompt for the root password to do an update of itself...

I also run flashblock so I consider myself to be *reasonably* safe...
