If PCs were cars, \"the Mac would be a Lexus
In his final farewell column, eWeek editor John Dodge admits that he bought an iMac last fall as promised: "Yes, I did buy the Mac as promised last fall, and it's lived up to my expectations.

Websites tested on Macs?
Andrew Harrison writes about problems he experienced with Entertainment Weekly's Website (which we encountered as well):
"Hey MacNN, as dedicated Macintosh users, I think we are required to point out companies who either don't care about us, or ignore us as consumers.
The problem is Entertainment Weekly's Website The site is horribly slow in IE5 even with my broadband connection, to top it off, resizing the browser window in Explorer 5 either freezes the machine or the browser unexpectedly quits. Is this just me, or does it happen to others? Another problem, this in Netscape 4.0.5, - Load the same page, and shrink the browser window(once or twice) and watch all the content dissapear! Are these problems specific to the website, or problems in each browser?
Anyhoo, I think it is necessary for we Mac users to let E-Weekly know that their website is ignoring an important set of people."
