Hardware, Embedded Systems The race to the bottom has wrecked havoc in the PC industry. The only PC maker with decent margins is Apple, and even they aren't doing anything particularly innovative. Razor, though, wants to buck the trend. After a ballsy marketing campaign, the company has unveiled the Razer Blade. The Razer Blade is what you get when you combine the team behind OQO, add some engineers from Dell, Apple, and others, and tell them to design the thinnest, most stylish gaming laptop - no questions asked. The result is striking.

Member since:


I bought an iPad 2 because I wanted the best tablet. The choice was a no-brainer. Other than editor at OSNews, I'm also a simple consumer with limited funds. I never made a secret of the fact that when I go out to buy stuff with my own money, I buy what's best value. Simple. I have never condemned anyone for buying Apple, since it is unreasonable to expect regular folk to know what kind of an anti-competitive company Apple really is.

I know you are sitting all smug in your chair thinking you scored a point or something, but I've always been open about the fact that I do, yes, buy Apple products. I'm nothing if not a massive hypocrite - I've said that numerous times on OSNews. Unlike most other bloggers out there, I do not hide my hypocrisy.

Do you expect me to congratulate you on your hypocrisy?

That's why I have such a good insight into how Apple products work, what their failings are, and so on. I do not spout uninformed crap about Apple and its products - I most likely know more about both than all MDN or DaringFireball readers combined - *exactly because* I use their products.

I don't think you know any more or less than folks from MDN or DaringFireball. You're just a guy with an opinion. Don't flatter yourself.
