Wow! Hell must have frozen over. That's one critic more with good things to say.

From the article:
let me be the first to say that I was way wrong about a few things.

Well Seth, you can't be the first, but I'll give you credit for admitting when you're wrong.

And double points for having a good sence of humor about it:

From the article:
Seth Jayson is heading to the store for some kerosene so he can torch his Windows machines and replace them all with Macs. When he's finished, he'll be picking up a black turtleneck, wire-rimmed specs, and a Volkswagen Beetle. He has also thrown away every non-iPod music device and painted himself and his dog bright white. But he has no position in any firm mentioned.

First Thurott (sp?) then this guy. Then my Dad last night (a devoted anti-Mac and life-long windows user) announced that he was getting a mini mac immediately to see "if it works as good as my iPod". Wow. Maybe eventually my Dad will get a black turtleneck and VW like this guy. Such a good time to be a Mac user.

I was very impressed with his backflip. Not many people in this day and age admit that they were wrong.

I like this guy's attitude. He was proven wrong and didn't throw a hissy-fit like that Bill Palmer guy who is fuming about being dead wrong about the Mac mini.

I guess I can respect him more for being forthcoming.

I still think this guy is a world-class asshat, minus the class. Tomorrow he'll be dissing Apple again.

No, fair play to him for having the integrity to admit he was wrong, and with a sense of humour.

First Dvorak, then Thurott, then this guy. ;) Hell hath truly frozen over. Up next... Rob Enderle?

I like this guy's attitude. He was proven wrong and didn't throw a hissy-fit like that Bill Palmer guy who is fuming about being dead wrong about the Mac mini.
And Palmer is a Mac lover! The world has truly gone mad.

(What is Bill's problem though? I don't plan on buying a mini after closer inspection, but I already know a ton of people who will. It's intended audience will love it. This is no Cube.)
