In this post I learned that descriptive monikers are not allowed. I never even once got the impression that "superstorm" was supposed to be an actual designation. I'm willing to poll the public on that one, too. There seems to be a trend in your articles to assume the public is less intelligent than they probably are. » 10/30/14 5:46pm 10/30/14 5:46pm

The funniest thing to me is that 99% of the people who complain that Macs aren't upgradable never cracked open a computer in their life and never intend to. They're just mad that the "bad guy" took away something they thought they should have. I'm reasonably certain the same is true of the vast, vast majority of… » 10/20/14 11:58am 10/20/14 11:58am

Oh no! You made a positive comment about an Apple product! Clearly you are a hipster/sheep/pick-your-insulting-label! Now excuse me while I go buy a car with a 500 HP engine and a 200 mph top speed I'll never attain, because dammit, engine size and top speed are obviously the most important things. » 9/24/14 2:26pm 9/24/14 2:26pm

Well, I've learned one thing from Gizmodo comments the last few days. You cannot make a positive comment about an Apple product without being branded as an Apple loving sheeple. It's apparently impossible for people to draw their own conclusions about a product, and clearly product Y from equally giant and… » 9/23/14 1:44pm 9/23/14 1:44pm
