Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

Google Serving Itself DMCA Takedown Notices on Chrome Videos?

Send Article to a Friend

Update: It's all working now, so take a look at the videos to get a sense of what Chrome can do. -Adam

So I decided that even if Google's new Chrome Web browser is available only for Windows right now, I should take a look through the feature videos to get a feel for what's forthcoming for Mac users.

"One box for everything." Sounds great. -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Gee, I wonder if Google served itself a DMCA takedown notice on the Tolkien reference.

"New Tab page." I'm in favor of that. -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Hmm, perhaps Chrome's tabs are a bit too kinky for YouTube.

"Application shortcuts." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Grr...

"Dynamic tabs." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Oh, never mind.


Maybe I'll try again in a few minutes.
