Stupid article justs makes a headline, a few superficial comments and then goes onto talking about a "Fast find" feature enhancement in Windows, that you can download, and yawn more Windows something else...

Confused?!

What a confusing read. Headline about iMac. First several paragraphs about iMac. Then MSN search capabilities. I read that transition 3 or 4 times trying to figure out why his "Find fast" lead in was talking about an MSN search toolbar instead of Spotlight. Nice, clear transition!

I'm assuming that in the original layout, the phrases "find it fast" and "talking windows" were subdivision headings... It makes sense from the grammar. I think he writes a column that is usually a catch-all about several different computer-related topics, and that the three segments of the article (iMac G5 20", Find it fast, and Talking Windows) were supposed to be basically unrelated separate short comments.

He probably got into computers when getting a bigger monitor mean getting a 15" CRT... in which case a 20" widescreen seems very large!

That's odd. It started out as an article on the iMac, then it swithed to the MSN tool bar, then becam a cell phone add.

It just seems that with most of this article about Apple, they can't stay on topic. Seem to feel a real need to expound on Windows.

Judging by his portrait, looks like a "mentally challenged" person wrote the article.

"The Audiovox SMT 5600 Smartphone ($249.99) from Cingular isn't much bigger than a candy bar, but it can do Windows plus all the other things we've come to expect from a tricked-out, multimedia cell phone."


'it can do Windows'...what does that even mean (and who would even want that?)

Not to mention, something that runs "does Windows" is hardly tricked-out and/or multimedia

I literally cracked up seeing that.

He is judging the quality and size of the monitor, and hes crosseyed and can only fully open one eye.

Its like having a Pig inspect the quality of Bacon.
