MG Siegler, Massive Greatness:
I get it. I really do. What I don’t get is why no one calls them on this? Their stances are often nonsensical bullshit with no basis in reality. The Microsoft Surface just made the MacBook Air and the iPad look obsolete? Really? It would be an insane thing to say that an un-launched product with no release date, no price, no real app support, and which Microsoft was clearly afraid to let journalists actually play with, would harm one of those Apple products. Gizmodo is saying it will render both obsolete.
Uh, plenty of us call them on their bullshit, MG. Jim did it here on the Loop right after Jesus Diaz posted his ridiculously sycophantic garbage. And heck, taking Gizmodo to task for lousy analysis is almost a weekly sport on my Angry Mac Bastards podcast. But good on you for calling it like it is. Welcome to the club.
I don’t think we should discount the Surface – if there’s one company out there with the wherewithal to take on Apple in the tablet space, it’s Microsoft. But Gizmodo’s early crowing about Microsoft as the new winner is utterly foolish.
