A lot of what he said would be funny if he were not so proud of his sense of humor. Otherwise, not much substance.

Reply 9 of 23 michael Posts: 25member May 5, 2003 1:46PM Um, I rather liked the review. Very post-modernist, and a little more stream-of-consciousness than I'm used to. Regardless of the style, he has some good points. And I think his description the palo alto apple store, and the mac-heads in it (along with the mac community) is fiendishly accurate, and perhaps a little too close to home.And, in case you hadn't noticed, or hand't bothered to read to the last paragraph. He likes itciao, Reply 10 of 23 stupider...likeafox Posts: 1,618member May 5, 2003 3:24PM I also liked the review, and note that this guy, like the Mac user on the theRegister.co.uk, gets dinged for being a PC user, when both obviously have copious knowledge of Mac arcana.Having said that his original switching series, premiered in the ars forum, was much, much better. Someone linked to it from here before so maybe they'll do so again. Reply 11 of 23 job Posts: 420member May 5, 2003 5:48PM That article was the funniest thing I have read in weeks.Mac users need to lighten up... Reply 12 of 23 shawnpatrickjoyce Posts: 2,417member May 5, 2003 5:56PM **** Ars. Reply 13 of 23 cesjr Posts: 23member May 5, 2003 10:09PM Of course it's funny. But what do you do when basically the product is good and, damn, APPLE AGAIN!!! Argh!!It's not too hard to poke fun at people like Jobs, with all the hyping and marketing (anathema to Ars types). Or to poke fun at the Mac-worshipers. But when you strip away the excess, what's there? Some old balding already super rich guy that for whatever wacky reason is on some kind of mission to actually make good computing products, rather than just milk the public with dreck a la Microsoft. Even though the public doesn't seem to care much. Why does he keep going?As for the mac fans, mostly we're just people who like a nice product. What a strange concept.

Reply 19 of 23 low-fi Posts: 357member May 6, 2003 5:09PM IMHO, Jade is pretty funnay. His MWNY review is very amusing - he adds a different perspective, which can never be a bad thing Reply 20 of 23 ast3r3x Posts: 5,012member May 6, 2003 6:02PM haha he took some shots at apple but it was still funny...especially his pictures with his markers «12» Sign In or Register to comment.
