Killjoy McShitsoneverything is right, you definitely shouldn’t buy an iPad. First-generation Apple products always suck. Like those original Titanium PowerBook G4s? Holy crap were those things... well, come to think of it, they were pretty thin and fast. And had... Continue »

When the editor-in-chief of the city's biggest paper begins a speech with the words 'I am one of the most internet and technology aware editors in the industry...' you kind of know he's going to spend the next five or ten minutes proving comprehensively through his words and responses that he doesn't have a clue.

It's always curious to me when people are called out on their bullshit, and they attack with excuses and outlandish claims, rather than just taking responsibility for their actions.

My quick take on the iPad: this really is an entirely new class of device. Not because of the form factor (neat!) or the technology (fast!) or the vertically integrated content distribution channel (smart!). Instead, the iPad is something new... Continue »
