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.

I have read OSnews for years and they do not claim to be the voice of reason (and that's a GOOD thing) but they do imply there is news within. So I return to this site daily and see the fringe is fraying. (Braying) I wish their voice wasn't so silly and shrill because paranoia poisons the pond.

Pilgrim, since Apple's mbox fiasco, has become polarized against Apple and that is not helpful. He likes Linux so I enjoy reading when he has something to say on THAT topic, but when he rallies AGAINST another way of doing business he goes hyperbolae over the point. He inspires those who looks for shadows and dark forces. (My grandfather believed the biggest evil in society was the auto. Horses...now THERE was perfection)

My point is getting lost in digression here: vote with your wallet like I can vote with my clicks (and delete this bookmark). You can still voice your "fears" <duh> and I can still read insightful tech NEWS elsewhere. (Just a thought: You may want to change the site name)

I don't want the tweeks to pack their toys and go play with themselves; though it has been a long time since I found a thought on OSnews that sponsored within me anything other than reaction. Just, don't expect me to believe the sky is falling because, unlike my grandfather, I am quite sure you will still be able to buy a horse after the automatic transmission is perfected.
