    Mac Addict is light and funny, IMHO.

    I get that and Macworld.

    MacAddict for sure. I have grown to hate Macworld. Look at their reviews. There isn't a product that they have reviewed that was poor. Everything gets 4 or 5 mouses (mics?) rating. They just melt over anything Apple related. I'd prefer a more objective look at products than plain old worship.

    I'd agree that the number of mice in their reviews are meaningless, but most reviews and articles in Macworld I find pretty useful. I used to prefer MacAddict, but the few I've picked up recently we're much lighter of tone AND content, yet more expensive...
