Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

We did read the entire article. We just didn't read every link.


That's fine - just don't blame that on me. If you misunderstood what was going on in this case, the proper response is: "Oh, I misunderstood because *I* didn't read the links. Could you elaborate on this please, next time? Thanks!"

You don't do as the original poster did and just launch an all-out attack.

Comparing this to an academic paper is a bit silly, by the way. Thanks for the vote of confidence, but that's like comparing a toddler's doodle of a house to the Mona Lisa.

I wouldn't call the OP's post an all-out attack, though he did seem to relish pointing out flaws a bit too much. For the record, I've been a lurker here for years. I only registered today because I thought the responses you and Morgan posted were dickish and condescending to an extreme. Of all the interesting, enraging and though-provoking things that have been posted over the years, the only thing that drove me to respond was the way you handled an obvious troll. Please keep that in mind.

Only comparing formats, not content. The medium is the message, my friend ;)
