It's a pre-order site? I couldn't tell, seeing as how they won't even
let Firefox users in. OK, I did change my agent string to look in, but
didn't pay a lot of attention after getting Flash overload. I think
there's an inverse relationship between the amount of Flash used on a
new product site and the desirability of the product they're launching.
(note that slimdevices.com has no Flash) :-D

Try using the Firefox 'FlashBlock' extension to stop flash animations from running until you explicitly request them.

I do, which makes the Sonos site completely useless until I request the
Flash. They're 100% Flash navigation. At least Roku Labs didn't have
the heavy Flash coating on their vaporware. :)
