PC Mag loves, hates Apple

Following serious questions about the magazine's editorial integrity, PC World has posted the two -- now infamous -- "love" and "hate" articles about Apple. Last week, the magazine's editor-in-chief abruptly quit when the company's CEO (Colin Crawford) insisted editorial and reviews be toned down for the company's advertisers. The articles include some criticisms about Apple, including the Cupertino-based company's quest to runaround First Amendment protections afforded to journalists, the company's highly "secretive" product launch strategies, its arrogance after shipping iPods with a Windows worm, the nearly ubiquitous "iAnything" nomenclature, etc. Sublimed product design, the Mac OS, reliability, Apple's progressive DRM-free music stand, Windows on Mac, are among the 10 things PC world loves about Apple.

    10 things we hate: #5 "What about blu-ray"

    Yah, what about it? Any Windows PCs shipping with it? Any support for blu-ray in Vista? How that xbox thingy - does it include bluray?

    Awaiting a "#10 things we hate about Microsoft" article next.

    re: 10 things we hate

    about Microsoft.

    10 things? more like 100 things.

    They really had to stretch to find 10 things they hated about Macs, didn't they? If only those were the worst things you could say about PCs running Winblows...

    Yeah, right. I for one couldn't care less about BR. How about HD-DVD? The whole HD industry hasn't even gotten their sh*t together to persuing one and only one HD disc format and these twats are complaining about the absence of a Blu-Ray drive. Whatever.

    Article just sucks

    After reading the article I think the article was pulled because it sucked. Some of the points were valid, but who cares? -Secrecy prevents copy cats and imitators.

    -Slow security updates for issues that have affected 0% of Apple users.

    -Hockey puck mouse and iBook. Do 10 year old designs really make you hate Apple?

    -No blu-ray. They hate Apple because they aren't using a non-standardized drive? Anyone remember DVD RAM? Besides it's not like there isn't room in the G5 to add aftermarket solutions.

    The list goes on with pet peeves and lame reasons to hate Apple.....lame

    Run out and buy one for Pete's sake! So what if you can't pay Apple too much for one. There are other sources for Blu-ray drives!

    serious questions?

    '...serious questions about the magazine's editorial integrity, PC World..." (I've stopped laughing) seriously now, PC World, integrity? In the same sentence? Do go on.
