    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    I currently have a two column Joomla website, however I don’t like the sidebar being on the right. Is there a way to either convert a two-column jJomla website into a three column one, or at least move the sidebar to the left?.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this particular issue and it does indeed supply us a lot of fodder for thought. Nonetheless, from everything that I have seen, I just simply hope when the commentary pack on that people remain on issue and don’t embark on a tirade involving some other news of the day. All the same, thank you for this excellent piece and though I can not necessarily agree with the idea in totality, I value the viewpoint.
