Out of the Blue

So I keep getting errors playing QuickTime movies on my computer, getting messages that a vital component is missing. Fed up with this I went to the Apple site to pick up a full install of the latest version, only to learn this apparently can only be installed as part of an iTunes installation. Is this really the only way to properly update QuickTime now? Rather than force me to install iTunes, this just has me ignoring this problem for now.

CNN.com just got a new layout. I refreshed and BAM! something completely different.

Not bad.

Just noticed that as well, since I usually leave a tab with CNN.com open all the time. Glad they got rid of the flash widget with the video (they kept the widget but it is no longer flash). But on the downside the page layout is wider than I like to keep my browser window. I prefer that web sites NOT make me resize or scroll horizontally to see all content. The majority of sites do not take column width into account so if I open all the way to read CNN, I would have to close it back down to read other sites to avoid unreasonably long lines of text (tough to read).

EDIT: Oh, and hopefully this new TIME cover story will serve as something of a wake-up call. Hopefully.

I hope so as well, but I seriously doubt it.
