Marius, here you're at it again... just re-reading the thread to
inform Eero and I saw you already said this times ago. :-P

Well, all I can say is that "web2.0" with their ajax and buzz-words is

The strange thing is that you did buy an internet tablet, which the
main component is the browser. I admit current browser, flash and so
isn't the best thing around, but it's not that bad either.
