    this is tainted by the fact that Steve Case and Rupert Murdoch have had this"honor" in the past.

    Sorry. Bongs are Apple's pervue, a-la Steve Jobs.

    Microsoft sniffs the glue that they use to make the boxes, then jump around on a stage in from of thousands of software geeks demanding adulation despite the fact that they've just arrived - and their shirts are already soaked.

    ok, but still. does that sound better than
    "stick that in your glue container and sniff it?"
    maybe:/

    You are both right. Had anyone even heard of Silicon.com before? or do they just have a yearly list to get them some badly needed publicity? They should have picked the ass-head President of the RIAA.

    Actually no she hasn't. But seriously someone had to point out the lameness of that post. It's almost as bad as that guy that was griping about some third party website ripping off Apple's web design. wtf.

    Hey, I just wanted people to know more about Apple's growing popularity. The reason I posted it is that it was linked from Wired.com.

    oh ok my mistake, I thought you were implying something else. Sorry for raggin on you. It's just that usually it sickens me when I see posts that are totally pro mac. Of course, there isn't necessarily anythiing wrong with that, but I mean some of the people are just too hardcore for their own good, much like the linux and windows bigots. And it gets way worse in a community which is or can be considered the "underdog"
