Although it does make me want it more and more... *sigh* Reply 2 of 10 murbot Posts: 5,262member January 26, 2002 12:51PM 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... Reply 3 of 10 ghost_user_name Posts: 22,667member January 26, 2002 3:57PM 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]" /> Reply 4 of 10 steve666 Posts: 2,600member January 26, 2002 4:49PM I read the whole thing and it seems to be an overall positive review to me............................

For once, I agree with Steve666. Reply 7 of 10 eman Posts: 7,204member January 26, 2002 5:31PM I didn't see what's so bad either. Reply 8 of 10 amorph Posts: 7,112member January 26, 2002 10:25PM 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. Reply 9 of 10 bauman Posts: 1,248member January 26, 2002 10:55PM 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]" /> ~bauman[ 01-26-2002: Message edited by: bauman ]</p> Reply 10 of 10 idave Posts: 1,283member January 26, 2002 11:21PM 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. Sign In or Register to comment.
