There's a degree of masochism that comes with preferring any OS/platform. Nice to see this take explored in such a witty way. :D

Charlie Brooker's a liar!

Haha, loved the article, but couldn't help seeing a brand-spanking new MacBook Pro sat on his table next to his Vaio on the latest Gameswipe earlier tonight. Maybe he gave in after all?

I loved this article. Very funny! It amazes me how I managed to get a Macintosh and not ram it down peoples throats. I just go about being happy that I actually really do love my computer... most of the time.

Has it ever pissed me off? Err.. ya. It has actually >>

Me too.

It doesn't matter to me if others are, but I'm no Mac evangelist, and I figure Apple is doing just fine without my help.

It is kinda fun when the curious ask questions though, as the backlit Apple is fairly conspicuous.

OMG that is AWESOME.

The first few paragraphs of that article sound exactly like my gf.

Now that puts things in perspective. I applaud.

this isn't the first Mac forum were I've seen a thread on this.

I must be the only person in the world who thinks - nay, knows;) - this broker guy isn't funny!?! even seeing the name Newswipe on a TV guide puts me to sleep!!:p
