Every time I check <a href="

Nice to see, and it helps to pass the time while I'm waiting for mine.
Although it does make me want it more and more... *sigh*

I posted that without even reading his review...
Just tried skimming it over lightly, and my eyes got sore. Must be the 3 hours I just spent outside clearing snow...
Can't decide what the hell the guy was trying to do with that... heh heh... I'll read it again when I have time.
Time to go lay down...

I read it and I think the author is really misguided. He says some good things about the iMac and some inapropriate things about it and Apple as well.
A very sinister review. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

I don't really see how this is a negative or mocking review either. For once, I agree with Steve666.

I didn't see what's so bad either.

Nor do I, although I can see where
got the idea that the tone is mocking - the prose is rather overripe, and some of the similes are well over the top (Chartes?!).
I get the feeling that they were intended sincerely, however.

Well, I just skimmed it, but it seems to be extremely poor writing. It's hard to decide exactly what they are saying.
I guess it's that it is SO melodramatic. Is that for sarcasm or emaphasis? Too may cliches, too much everything. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

A little tongue-in-cheek, I think. The title says it all. Don't take it too seriously and it's kind of humorous, actually. A different take on the new machine, the whole introduction and all. Nice piece.
