Macworld keeps trying to get me to renew the free subscription I got when I bought my new computer. Fat chance. Macworld is nothing more than 125 pages of monthly Mac propaganda. Check out some of these headlines and graphics from the new issue:
"OSX 10.5.2 Comes as Welcome News: Leopard update shows that Apple listens to users."
WOW! Thanks, Dan Frakes! What a hard-hitting story!
....now you're fired. Didn't Steve Jobs tell you to maintain at least a thin veil of credibility over your bare-faced pandering? Or does he just let you run with it?
"Is the iPod Slipping? Slow growth doesn't tell the whole story."
The iPod? Slipping?! Perhaps there's more here that I can't learn from sales figures alone!
81% of Leopard users are "very satisfied" while only 51% of XP users--and 27% of Vista Home users--are satisfied? What a superior product this must be!
And it's not just pro-Mac drivel. There's also plenty of anti-Microsoft bombs:
"Considering how ugly Office 2008 looks, I will never upgrade. Office 2004 works just fine."
"User Discovers Office 2008 Problems: Microsoft promises fixes for installation issues."
Boy am I glad I have a mac, hillstones! Those guys are Microsoft are a bunch of clowns!
Macworld is as credible as a Chinese newspaper around about 1955..."Survey reports peasants are happier than ever!" Give me a break. Just tell me about the 100 great keyboard shortcuts you figured out and save the other 124 pages for a real magazine. I hear American Gentrifier is looking to expand.
