Evil Genius, deconstructs the ‘public will never go for amateur stuff’ argument that broadcasters (even public or community broadcasters) always trot out in response to citizen-originating media. The post responds to a guest piece by Stephen Hill in Steve Gillmor’s column.

Tim Bray noted many problems with the Dell online buying experience: Shopping, Dell vs. Apple and today noted that he got a flurry of responses suggesting that his Dell experience was not out of the ordinary at all. I agree – after reading about Boris’ experiences with his monitor I went right over to the Dell site to see if it might be time to pick one up for myself, and I was shocked to see how difficult it was to find the information.
I’ve found for information about Apple Mail is Tim Gaden’s Hawk Wings weblog. Check out the great list of resources and such as well.
I have an email problem that I can’t seem to solve. I use a couple of different email clients on a couple of different machines to check my POP email. I also get a lot of spam. My main machine, at home, runs Apple’s Mail.app and does a pretty good job at filtering it out. The problem is that when Mail identifies and removes a spam email from my Inbox, I would like it to delete the email from the server immediately, or at least on the following connection to the server. If it did so, then when I checked email remotely using my phone, only good emails would be left, saving hassle and bandwidth (my Treo bandwidth usage is metered).
I have asked about this in Apple’s Discussion Forums and at Ask MetaFilter, but no joy yet. Is there anyone who reads here who might be able to help?
