“Apple advocates are doing the unthinkable: They’re complaining publicly about a new Apple product release,” Mary Jo Foley writes for ZDNet’s “All About Microsoft” blog.
MacDailyNews Take: Oh, Mary Jo, that’s a good one! As we know all too well, Apple advocates complaining publicly about a new Apple product release is hardly unthinkable, it’s unavoidable. Funny stuff!
Foley continues, “Even typically staunch Mac backers are admitting that Apple’s new Leopard operating system is not perfect. It might even be as problem-prone (if not more so) as Windows Vista. Could Leopard go so far as to drive some switchers into Vista’s arms? Sounds crazy, but who knows….”
MacDailyNews Take: ROTFLOFAO! Pure comedy gold, Mary Jo! Keep it coming!
Foley continues, “If you’re Microsoft — especially a member of the Vista team — there’s no way you can help but gloat. Very few Softies or their loyal followers are gloating publicly. But there’s no way they aren’t enjoying this turning of the tables.”
MacDailyNews Take: The. Next. Roseanne.
For her grand finale, Mary Jo offers up a poll, “If Microsoft would and could create a new Vista vs. Leopard campaign, which route should it take?” Unfortunately, the comedy stylings of Mary Jo Foley fall flat with uninspired, groan-inducing multiple choice answers that, if you must, are in the full blog post here.
MacDailyNews Take: She almost had it until that poll. Thud. Oh, well, she did provide some good laughs earlier on. Thanks, Mary Jo! Boy, that vacant soccer-mom look, writing tech gibberish as if she knows even a whit about what she’s writing, that dopey smile – what an act! WE LOVE IT! ZDNet is to be commended for injecting a comedienne’s satire into the sometimes bland world of technology.
