Apple The beauty of the internet is such that every opinion has become worthless; this goes doubly so for those with publish buttons on (relatively, we're humble) major websites. For every opinion, there's a matching counter-opinion, and that's great. Yesterday, we linked to an article by Mark Pilgrim about tinkerers and the iPad, and of course, someone was bound to disagree with that one.

The author is whining more than anyone else I've heard. He's a pragmatist who's willing to compromise. Nothing really wrong with that, we need people like that. But, he's trashing the whole notion of idealism (talk about grandiose), and that's just wrong. There are times when even avowed idealists have to compromise. That doesn't mean that they cannot have ideals and try to change the world to fit those ideals. They just shouldn't give up because the world doesn't adhere to their idea of what it should be.
