I think I have a new favorite site

Ok, this guy is just kidding around, he must be. Check out a few ‘notable’ quotes from this ‘article’, geesh this isn’t even an article it’s a thesis for a degree in comedy.

“When I consider that a good deal of my time is spent running applications like Disk Defragmenter, Scandisk, Norton AV, Windows Update and Ad-Aware–none of which are available for the Mac platform–it doesn’t make sense for me to “switch” to a Mac at this time. “

“There is no Mac version of WeatherBug to check the temperature anywhere in the world”

“Poor standards compliance: Apple’s Safari web browser often fails to render MSN properly.”

“The Mini boots up into a stripped-down operating system which Apple calls OS X, similar to the stripped-down WindowsCE OS found on many handhelds. “

Ok it was right then I KNEW this guy was goofing, no one could be this uninformed…. Wait, I just read the ‘linux for grandma’ post, yep it’s a spoof site, and the disclaimer at the bottom of the page proves it. haha I was had.

    My favorite quote:

    If you believe Apple’s marketing department, the new Mini is “smaller than most packs of gum” and weighs “less than four quarters”. Well, we received our test unit from Apple yesterday, and let me say right off the bat that those claims are a wee bit of an exaggeration.

    Of course they never said that about the Mac Mini – that was referring to the iPod Shuffle.

    I just wanted to say that the article sucked. It is certainly not something I expect out of any respectable tech writer. We should file an official complaint against the hosting site pointing out the lack of facts.
