    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.
