Is the iPhone good?

Now that we are in the post-iPhone era, did the iPhone stand up to it’s hype? Here are some things that we didn’t like about the iPhone.

Safari on Windows XP
Just installed the brand new Apple’s Safari browser on a Windows XP machine and no text shows up (See Image). There are no menu bars, no bookmarks and no text on the web page that is displayed. The images seem to load up fine and that is the only thing that seems to work. The address bar is clickable but can’t more info

seem to type anything in it. Same thing with the search box. Tried rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling but doesn’t seem to help. Has anyone run into the same issue?

UPDATE (6/22/07): A new Safari beta 3.0.2 has been released by Apple which seems to have fixed this issue. You can either uninstall and download the new version from Apple’s website or use the Apple software updater to get the new beta.
