All over the Mac web, the new iBook color "key lime", which is an intense yellowish green, is creating big controversy.
Actually, perhaps controversy is not the word. For that to be true, there would have to be someone who actually likes it, and we have not heard of anybody yet.

Play your favorite Youtube movies

Unfortunately, the flash-based Youtube movies ask too much of the iBook hardware. My workaround: Save Youtube movies with a little help from keepvid.com in mp4 format. The video player VLC (OSX 10.3.9 at least for the current version), is able to play these files even on a 300MHZ Blueberry or Tangerine iBook in its original resolution. The option to skip frames should be activated.

 

If you own a 366MHZ or 466MHZ Clamshell with 8MB graphics try Youtube on OS9. With the Mozilla-based Wamcom browser and the appropriate Flash Player plug-in (you have to place it manually in the wamcom plug-in directory) you are able to play them directly - the design and performance is still not perfect.
