  • MP3 player – which one??

    I am in the market for an MP3 player and need some advice on which one to go for!!

    The driving force behind getting one is for use down the gym, running etc.

    I was looking at the Creative Zen Nano (too many bad reviews about the iPod Nano!) but then I found the MS Zune with a million more features but it's bigger and obviously more expensive but when you consider the extra features it worth it.

    Has anyone taken their Zune running? Is it to big and heavy to strap to my arm/waist?!?

    Anyone got any other alternatives?

    Thanks J


  • Flash swf object in html: z-index

    Yesterday I came across a right little pain in the butt!  I found that swf objects display on top of all layers regardless of z-index.

    I found the solution was to add this line in the markup.

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="/someMovie.swf" width="100" height="100">   <param name="movie" value="/someMovie.swf" />   <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> </object>

    Problem is this doesn't work in firefox, does anyone have a cross browser solution to this???
