Have you folks read this article in The Register concerning the new Apple commercials:<br>http://www.theregus.com/content/39/25261.html<br><br>In journalism there is criticism and then there is [color:red]CRITICISM!<br><br>I'm not sure if Andrew Orlowski hates the Apple marketing team for creating the new ads or just the "ugly" people in them. Either way, I get his point, but is necessary to personally attack the people asked to be in the commercials? This article is ruthless!<br><br>
It's not criticism, it's character assassination. And also unidiomatic. Apple's "strong suite"? Please!<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by yoyo52 on 06/17/02 04:56 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

honestly, if you take it with a grain of salt, you can sit back and laugh you ass off while reading the article... regardless of why it was written, it is definitely a fun read... just take it with a grain of salt, as I'm sure the people written about are going to have to...<br><br><br>...if you don't care where you're going, it doesn't make a difference which path you take.<br>--the Cheshire Cat to Alice, in Alice in Wonderland, by Louis Carroll

I think part of why I was so shocked is that the author usually writes excellent articles for The Register. He appears to be the "mac writer" of the group and in most cases his columns are very insightful, nonbiased articles about industry news or rumors, and wouldn't be considered "flamebait" nor Apple a$$-kissing segments. So, why he would spend SO much time digging at this latest bit of Apple marketing is curious?<br><br>
Great comedy piece. LMAO! The writer likely fits into one of the personality types he slams and is driven to bash the ads because of his own lack of self esteem.<br><br>[color:red]Alec</font color=red>
