Mac OS X "Ars Technica's John Siracusa looks back with a decade's hindsight at his early reviews of Mac OS X. He talks about what went right, what went wrong, and what he's still waiting on." I've read them all over the years, and Siracusa is by far the best reviewer on the web. His Mac OS X reviews are worth it for the technical details of the inner workings of Mac OS X alone - even if you don't use or like Apple's operating system.

He is "not even a good [reviewer]", but he is a good, insightful, knowledgeable writer.

You don't learn enough from him, but he is essential reading if you are considering an Apple product.

However, it rather misses the point, which become even more obvious if you’ve ever stood in the lobby of a KFC or listened in to a Yum! Brands shareholder call.

Sorry, but what on Earth was your point?

You never stated any solid reason why you consider him poorly in spite of your otherwise glowing recommendations. Something like, "he is a bad reviewer because he omits important details" would have sufficed. Much better in my opinion, than a bird's nest of mixed metaphors and ambiguous analogies that did more to induce groans than understanding. :-)
