Editorial Rob Enderle wrote an intriguing editorial for Digital Trends entitled "You can't call 'time out' in Silicon Valley," which examines the current battle between Apple, Google and Microsoft over the future of computing. In it, he draws some interesting parallels from the history of warfare, and notes that Microsoft and Google have made some of the classic blunders that have caused great armies to fail dramatically.

David Adams, you wasted an entry in OSnews

Enderle is not a newsworthy person, has nothing insightful to say, and rehashes badly what he hears around.

It is not worth to take up a news item on OSnews for Enderle.

Enderle might be what you describe. But for me, who didn't know the guy and thus can't cringe at reading his name, David's article was an interesting read. So no, I don't think he wasted an entry. In fact, before reading the comments, I clicked the "recommend this" button.

On the other hand, some user comments seem totally useless.

The fact that you do not recognize Enderle's name is why he still has the power to misinform and misdirect. I fear that by the time you come around to this same opinion, there will be a fresh crop of people that have not heard of him.

I realize that Enderle has a bad reputation, and that's one of the reasons that I made sure to attribute the original article to him explicitly in the description, which we don't usually do. Nevertheless, I did find his analysis of the situation to be insightful, and where I doubted his claims, I pointed that out. (I'm not sure that Google is really starving the Android project for resources).
