Macworld: Feature: The power user’s guide to Firefox, Page 1

Mozilla Firefox is rapidly catching on with Mac users, and for good reason: It’s free, fast, and flexible, and it does an outstanding job of displaying most Web pages. (This cross-platform browser is also increasingly popular among Windows users, largely because of its excellent pop-up-blocking features). And beneath Firefox’s simple interface are some surprisingly powerful features. The following tips will help you maximize this up-and-comer’s potential. (All these tips were tested in Firefox 1.0.6 but should also work in newer versions.)……….click the link above to read more….

AOL Radio featuring XM is now available through Winamp. Once you have downloaded the Full, Bundle, or Pro version of Winamp 5.1, open up the Media Library, and start listening to AOL Radio Featuring XM today!
XM Satellite Radio
XM Radio uses two Boeing HS 702 satellites, appropriately dubbed “Rock” and “Roll,” placed in parallel geostationary orbit, one at 85 degrees west longitude and the other at 115 degrees west longitude. Geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) is about 22,223 miles (35,764 km) above Earth, and is the type of orbit most commonly used for communications satellites. The first XM satellite, “Rock,” was launched on March 18, 2001, with “Roll” following on May 8. XM Radio has a third HS-702 satellite on the ground ready to be launched in case one of the two orbiting satellites fails.
XM Radio’s ground station transmits a signal to its two GEO satellites, which bounce the signals back down to radio receivers on the ground. The radio receivers are programmed to receive and unscramble the digital data signal, which contains up to 100 channels of digital audio. In addition to the encoded sound, the signal contains additional information about the broadcast. The song title, artist and genre of music are all displayed on the radio. In urban areas, where buildings can block out the satellite signal, XM’s broadcasting system is supplemented by ground transmitters.
Yeppers and now u can get it on WinAmp…
