With no apologies to Michael Palin, I’d like to know how Finbar Taggit embeds CNBC Squawk Box to load automatically when you visit his FiNTAG website.  In any case, it seems the only way I can get CNBC video to work on my Macs is to visit his site, so I’ll carry on regardless … and recommend you do get a Mac, FT
