Couple of things I found on the Gypsy

Since I thought I would update I opened gypsy sync by right clicking and chose - run as option - and  wow "I got we have to close sorry for the inconvenience" error. Not giving up when I double clicked on the icon - sure enough the G sync opened. But then after running G sync it said "not responding" and the "update has not been applied".. This was maybe because the G was busy doing something (keyword search) . So I  reset and am tried again. What's happening?
Also the other day while doing a keyword search for flower and after the search when I clicked on the top white box it bought me all the words with flower on it and today when I typed butterfly it got me an image and the cartridge next to it. Still taking lots of time. (gypsy build 0160) .Then I tried flower again and surprise it got me an image and cartridge so as I  clicked on the flower which was from 50 states (the first flower) and it took me to zooballo cartridge and added a snoopy dog to the window. What's happening?
Then I went back to keyword search and this time even when I did not type in any flower as the  flower keyword was still in there, when I pressed ok and went to the white box - this time it bought up all the flowers. Do we really have to learn all the nuances when for sure it is going to change with the next update? My head hurts. I am taking some tylenol and since it has finished updating and switched off , Iwill try test cutting and then do something else. Gosh! It's a love hate relationship with the G.

**Edited.
After the update, now my G is on 0162 this time when I clicked n that recalcitrant flower it added that flower instead of the dog and now I think I figured the keyword search out.
First time just the image and the cartridge . After selecting or canceling  if you go back  and do a keyword search again with the residual name(note if you switch off the g or reset this will be gone) and tap on the white box in the keypad overlay then you get the list of all the words with bird in it. . hmm. guess it is video time if I even remember how to operate this thing..

I really want to do the update to get the new carts to play with but am scared. Please update when you have cut to let us know it is working. Thank you so much for sharing with us! BTW, loved your article on Joy's blog.

When I click on "search", the bug with the magnifying glass, all I get is the Welcome page. Something's not right.

shelley - try resetting a couple of times to see if i works. Have you update to 0161/0162. Something is wrong with your G. It looks like if you have had some problem with the G when you do stuff like welding lots of times or searching which uses up the G's CPU a bit - then it shuts down. Maybe that's why it also froze lots of G's during the Christmas updates. If it keeps happening call PC
