Lat time Apple bought a program i liked (Soundjam) to include with OS X, they took out everything (almost) that I liked about it (Sleep Timer, skins, equalizers, separate player and playlist windows) And after I paid good money for SoundJam, too. Granted, with iTunes 2 they have added the equalizers back in, but now it prevents my monitor from going to sleep, which makes it useless (to me at least). So I would have to disagree with Click, Apple should NOT buy this program. Or any other good piece of software. Judging from their previous track record, at least.
Fire is a great app. But not a substitute to Gerrys ICQ. I still run it in Classic mode because it is the greatest ICQ app for Mac. Sorry I just can't stand the hiddeous look of the official client!! The thing is with fire is that you don't have the specific parts of each service, MSN is complete, because it only has IM. But the ICQ part is missing chat, file transfer and propper list management. Lets all pray that we get an update of Gerrys ICQ for carbon that works better
