Tibook Flakiness

14 months into this machine’s life and I’ve got the first worrisome (possibly) hardware issue. When viewing a site with lots of animated gifs (cnn, msnbc, yahoo) the whole screen jumps at odd times like someone bumped a bad video cable on a CRT causing the display to resync. Which is very disturbing if you’re using an LCD. It’s not just a window, it’s the whole screen.

It’s possible that it’s software, since it only seems to happen at commercial sites, and it’s much more common in Camino (seen 30-40 times) than in Safari (seen once). It’s also possible that it’s something else directly hitting video, like X or iTunes, or some other reasonably privleged program.

I guess I’ll be finding out how good applecare is.
