Jun 4th 2007 8:02AM There are LOTS of Engadget articles I couldn't care less about. If it's about video games or robots or vacuum cleaners which resemble robots... I just skip it. I never feel compelled to take time out of my busy day to read the article, then piss on it in the comments section.
I didn't do that when Vista was launched. I didn't do it when the PS3 was launched. Etc... In other words, I only comment on stories/products I'm actually interested in.
Why does every iPhone - any Apple story for that matter - bring out every douchy 15-year-old hater from under his mother's mattress to talk about how Appel is teh suXXorz or whatever?
I mean, get a life jackasses. Seriously! If you hate Apple (or Microsoft, or Nintendo, or whatever), how about just skipping that article?
May 24th 2007 8:09AM For $200 cheaper, I'll take the 47" over the 42" or am I reading something wrong?
Apr 3rd 2007 4:49AM I think what the regulators and lawsuit-happy folks are failing to remember is the simple fact that music tracks are not a life staple. If you don't like the price of songs at one particular store, buy your songs elsewhere. If you don't like the DRM scheme attached to one DMP, buy another.
This seems simple enough to me.
It's not like Apple is holding a gun to anyone's head and ordering them to buy DRM-laden tracks at an inflated price. Music is entertainment... An optional part of life. If Apple is teh suXXor in your country (or in your opinion), vote with your dollar and buy your stuff elsewhere.

You new at teh internets? Kill the caps lock before pecking out your dated lies.
Mar 29th 2007 8:03AM First Subie designers stepped back from the B9 Tribeca and said "Yeah, that looks about right."
Two otherwise impressive vehicles beaten with the ugly stick.
They. Must. Be. Stopped.
Mar 21st 2007 3:12AM Hey, Nick. Emily and I are kicking back on my couch watching a Michael Moore flick. Wanna come? Oooh! Wait... She already did. Twice. Now she's making me a sandwich.
Seriously, neo-con turd burglar, I'm not using a name that's not my regular here for one simple reason. I don't HAVE a regular name here. It's only seeing the crap you spew that's inspired me to jump into the cesspool. 99 times out of 100, I'm content to just read the posts here as a lurker.
Mar 20th 2007 4:56AM E-Nick, here's a thought... If you don't like the content here at TV Squad. If the writers here annoy you so much, why don't you stop reading this site?
Ya know what? There are sites that p!ss me off. Drudge, Fox "News," etc. Instead of visiting them every day and making a vein on my neck bulge, I just don't visit those sites. It's really pretty simple.
There are dozens of places that blog TV. Find another one. If none of them suit you, start your own.
In any case, get a frakking life, moron!
Mar 6th 2007 6:11AM OPEN LETTER TO LAUREN CARTER:
I don't get people who are afraid of the future... Afraid of change. You're a journalist. Do you still type on an I.B.M. Selectric and use correction strips? No. Of course not. The word processor features of your computer make your job easier and make you more efficient.
I'm nearly 40. I most definitely remember when "albums" used to come with art and liner notes and take up several dusty shelves at home. I absolutely love that I can carry around every song I've ever owned in something the size of a pack of a deck of cards. It's called progress.
Do you also prefer clumsy paper maps to the convenience of a GPS? What about dirty payphones outside of shady convenience stores instead of your cellphone?
I'm not even sure why I'm taking the time out of my day to write. I felt compelled to click the e-mail link at the bottom of your column.
I've always found Andy Rooney cranky and sad, not quirky and whimsical. Your column came across very Andy Rooney.
Enjoy reading liner notes and handling filthy media. The rest of us will be over here evolving.
Feb 26th 2007 6:39AM Don't kid yourself. That was a crack about Canadian currency. There's always a l'il joke whenever something Canadian comes up. And I'm writing this from the American southwest.
So let's get this straight. The head of the company - presumably a very busy man - gets involved in a dispute over this woman's kid's bill. Makes it right and ponies up a $5,000 credit as a bonus goodwill gesture... And she still sues.
No wonder people hate lawyers. Way to set an example, c--t!
Feb 15th 2007 4:53AM So let me get this straight. I should "take with a grain of salt" info I get for free on teh internets?
Thanks a million, honey. I was about to put a $429,000 offer on a house, but Zillow was wrong. It's only worth $379,000!
File this under "No sh!t, Sherlock!"
Seriously, Zillow sucks.
