Apple: a counter opinion

In the midst of all the hype back-and-forth about the pluses and minuses of the new iPad, here’s a clever little opinion piece from a newspaper that I read on the plane back from the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE conference in Barcelona. It’s from a few months ago, but still relevant. If nothing else, it certainly brought a smile to my face — despite the repeatedly delayed flight and the trio of crying babies in the seats around me:

“I don’t care if Mac stuff is cool. I don’t care if every Mac product comes equipped with a magic button on the side that causes it to piddle gold coins and resurrect the dead and make holographic unicorns dance inside your head. I’m not buying one, so shut up and go home. Go back to your house. I know, you’ve got an iHouse. The walls are brushed aluminum. There’s a glowing Apple logo on the roof. And you love it there. You absolute MONSTER.”

The rest can be found at the UK newspaper “The Guardian.”
