Should be a link on their homepage. I don't see any Pro models however. Nice step for Apple, and a nice step for Futureshop.

Good stuff.

I believe that Apple made an arrangement with Best Buy, and Best Buy bought Future Shop.

Too bad FutureShop's Website STILL doesn't work in Safari. It works ok in IE but not Safari. My guess is it will never run in Safari. You can get past the welcome screen, but as soon as you pick one of the menu options on the left like "Video" you will be taken to the next page. Now try to go ANYWHERE in the menu list on the left like TV's and your screwed!!

I know, you can view the first page of software, but not the second page of software. That is SO annoying about Safari and sites like Future Shop :mad:

If you really want to surf FS's site with Safari, you can, ctrl-click and select "Open link in new tab", it's a bit of pain, but that's what I do when I'm too lazy to open IE.

Well, I'm glad to hear that other people have had problems with Futureshop / Safari. I've reported it 3 times using the bug feature.

Usually the Futureshop site is okay for the first couple of pages but then the links stop working & it just won't respond. I rarely use Camino anymore but still keep it on my Dock, mostly for my Futureshop browsing.

Can anyone explain why Safari will not allow the FutureShop and a few other sites to work. I also went to the "here" link in james_squared's post and it will not work. :D :D

Does anyone have any idea why a website such as Futureshop's would go dead after you're a few links in?

I can understand that some sites don't work properly at all, but Futureshop's starts okay then goes bad. What is it that makes the page stop responding, some kind of cache issue?

If you look at the source, clicking the link is supposed to take you to futureshop's web site. The problem seems to be the way Safari executes the javascript involved when you click the link, and then doesn't bother to actually go to the URL specified.

My wife and I were at the Future Shop here in St. John's yesterday, and the had a new iMac on display for the first time. There must have been 20 people around it wanting to see it/try it out....................but it remains to be seen if they will start to buy it and take it home.

Funny... one click and dead. That's all that happens with me. FS is the only reason that I keep IE open. How fun... I thought that I was the only one as I was still on the older revs of Safari until this week. I guess not... :rolleyes:

Hello,

Yup, Skywatchers is a go.

I did find on other versions of Safari that the Goverment of Canada's main page would crash Safari. Try it out, here.
