quote: In tech, as in politics, it's self-destructive to blindly pick one company and loyally follow it. Competition is the seed of greatness, and you should evaluate each offering's merits with fresh eyes, to the best of your ability.
quote: Mick, your commentary of late has been so two-faced, even I am taken aback. You are the ultimate hypocrite. You routinely abuse your position as DT "reporter" to flagrantly slam any corporation you personally dislike, and defend those you do (read: your beloved Google / Android). And yet you have the balls / arrogance / stupidity to sit there and offer us the benefit of your infinite wisdom, cautioning others against exhibiting undue bias or favoritism.
quote: The President's support of Google also raises some eyebrows given Google's clever use of the "Double Irish" and "Dutch Sandwich" (legal) tax evasion strategies, funneling money through Ireland, the Netherlands and Bermuda, courtesy of federal loopholes, to avoid paying federal income taxes on its profits. These strategies reportedly saved Google $1B USD in 2011 and cut the company's effective tax rate to 18.8 percent, far less than the standard 35-40 most small businesses pay on earnings.Google officially raised almost a million dollars for the President's election bid.
quote: I really could not give a damn about your personal preferences, but I DO take SERIOUS exception to your two-faced, juvenile, slanderous, biased, misleading, sensationalistic and self-aggrandizing reporting.You are the ultimate turd
quote: I take issue with your poorly written pro-Apple trolling and uninformed vehemence.
quote: You are either underinformed or just plain dumb... From my most recent piece on Obama's Google+ chat:
quote: You see, Mick, you should not care what my personal preferences are, nor should I care about yours. What I DO care about is responsible, fair-minded, even-handed journalism. This is the point that is continually lost on you. I do not care that you adore your Android; I DO care that it grossly influences your writing style the result of which is that you take every opportunity to recklessly distort and slander those corporations you feel are at odds with your beloved Google. Get it? The fact that you then lecture your dear readers on the merits of remaining unbaised and open-minded is rich beyond belief.
quote: I don't see any of that in Mick's writings on this subject.
