Tangerine? Is it the fact that Tangerine is among the least popular choices of color for the iMac, or just the fact that its ugly that Apple chose it to be half the color options for the iBook? Very strange indeed although Steve Jobs' choices have proven fairly on track so far. :-)
While many had hoped the iBook would be priced a little cheaper than US$1600, when you consider the feature set, it is a great price indeed. There are no comparable Wintel laptops with anywhere near the power of a 300 MHz G3 in that price range. The iBook will be a huge success. Not "could" be, "will" be.

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.
