    G’day Paul & Marcus. You’ve probably already worked this out but I thought I’d see if I could help with your Facebook woes:

    There are a few websites supported by default to feed straight to your ‘Wall'; they can be added by signing in, clicking “View my profile” (next to your avatar on the left), then hitting the ‘Options’ link under the post box, and clicking it again when it changes to say ‘Settings’.

    Along with popular social sites like Flickr, Delicious and Youtube, you can add any RSS feed, like the one generated by your blog.

    Hope this helps…

    just wanted to throw this out there to see if you think I’m right. But you were discussing whos fault is it that you cant watch a video on a popular site on the iphone. Paul jumped on this right away blaming the site and not apple. I can def. see this argument however I think its no more or less the site owner/designers fault than it is apples. If Microsoft made a phone that didn’t support flash and this same argument was brought up would you “paul” have said how can someone like Microsoft make a phone with a browser that doesnt support one of the most popular ways to display video? I have an iphone and hate that most of the time can not watch the videos i want unless they are youtube related. I get that the newer ways for displaying video are here and that the phone prob. supports them. I just felt you were a little too quick to ignore the fact that apple is blocking a large amount of the video content from its iphone users.
