I withdraw my comment =P
he's a genius
Um, I think it's a humerous joke.
It's already been discussed here a fair amount, but I think you might have missed something. David Pogue is a huge Mac fan, and he was just trying to be funny.
You can tell hes joking, no one is really THAT stupid.
I guess the joke is on someone else now...
Didn't know that, the way that the summary of the article was worded, I thought he was a Microsoft fan. Very misleading otherwise I read it too fast and missed something.
Yeah, you weren't alone, apparently. I find it curious if your opinion of him has changed now that you know he's not "pro-Microsoft."
Pogue ain't stupid. He is, however, quite enthusiastic about the Apple platform.
Pogue is not only bright, but has contributed much help with his series of OS X: The Missing Manual covering practical helps from Panther to Tiger.
Not this again.
David Pogue is a funny guy...I love reading his Circuits articles and listening to his podcast. I miss the days when he used to write for MacWorld, those were some good back pages articles! Anyway...he obviously prefers OS X to Windows, but I think he's pretty fair in his Times articles, he always mentions what he thinks is good about Windows before he gives a list of reasons why it is bad, ha
Okay, so it's possible that some Mac fans have not heard of David Pogue. Difficult, but still possible. But not get the satire in that video? Seriously?
I don't know, it'd be very difficult to be enough of a Mac fan that you're signed up for the MacRumors forums yet haven't heard of David Pouge, with his countless pro-Apple articles, books and manuals, Macworld appearances and even numerous quotes in Apple advertisements...
I've been a Mac user/fan for 2 years now and I hadn't heard of David Pogue. Now that I have heard of him, I'll be sure to remember it. When I was a Microsoft fan, sort of, I don't know who the major columnists were that were very pro-microsoft.
I've been using Macs for 6 years now and never heard of him.
Have you never been into the Mac section of your local bookstore? You'll always find at least a couple of Pogue's books on the shelf.
I suppose he had a higher profile when he wrote for MacWorld, all those ages ago, when people actually read computer magazines. But I thought he was still kind of difficult to overlook.
He's also a very entertaining speaker.
Yeah, maybe I'm just showing my age!
I guess you hear less about him since his NYTimes days, but back in the days when the PPC was introduced, you couldn't pick up an issue of MacWorld or MacWeek or attend an Apple event without hearing the guy's name...
I suppose I just don't pay attention to who the authors of everything are.
Don't worry, it's not required.
Absolutely agree. I recommend anyone with a spare 20 minutes or to to watch him in action at this year's TED. Don't let the music turn you off - his ranting later on is classic, but superbly put.
I have David Pogue to thank for my Mac addiction. I even have the manual (signed by him) for one of his PowerBooks that he sent me.
