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.

Mark Pilgrim, a man I don't know but can easily presume is my technical better many times over if only because he is employed by Google


Not only that, he's obviously a man of much better writing skills who can actually put his ideas forth in a good manner. Joel's writing make him sounds like a snivelling whiner who is too upset to make a coherent argument.
Also, it's snivellers, not snivelers. Doesn't a Mac' these days have spell check?

It doesn't cost a month's salary to buy a computer.

True. For a lot of people in this world it costs much more than a months salary.
