Tech, Tac, Toe?


In the interests of fair and balanced reporting, the Ferret brings to you both sides of the eternal tech argument –


  • Ick. What poor examples of writing. Neither manages to get a point across effectively without sounding quite foolish at least once. Both were obviously written by people that have little experience with what they’re arguing against. Especially choice, from the second article: “… a good deal of my time is spent running … Disk Defragmenter, Scandisk, Norton AV, Windows Update and Ad-Aware…” Hmmm. Isn’t the idea that you _don’t have to_ run those all the time?
    Well done, Mr. Ferret. You’ve found the problem. With Windows and Mac users working hard to make their respective platforms look dumb by association with the users, all that’s really necessary Linux to take over would be some industry support, and an easy, functional, compatible distro.

  • DeVry graduate w/ certification. Wow. Way to lead mediocrity there Jorge.

  • Those are two of the worst articles about technology I’ve read in about 10 years. The DeVry grad doesn’t even have reading comprehension. Saying that the mac mini weighs as much as 4 quarters and the size of a pack of gum. Apple was talking about the Ipod shuffle there genius. And it just gets worse from there. The hippie from San Francisco is almost equally as bad, at least he had some sort of editing before it was vomited onto the web. Please don’t such horrible articles ever again.

  • The article on the Mini is on a satire site. (Take a look at some of the other articles — Building a Linux Desktop for Grandma is genius.)

  • Well maybe don`t look at all of the artiles on there. After reading the `my new friend is a mooslim` satire (quite funny if I weren`t worried that most religious yanks probably think that way for real), I thought I`d read another article from the site (Kelly`s page I think), and was greeted with pics of two girls riding a horse naked and a woman getting rammed by a dog. Not the kind of thing I want to see at work especially. God only knows what the test was or any other pics further down the page. So be careful of articles from that site if you`re at work.

  • Arf! <falls in at last></falls>
