the question really is...
by Kokoro-Kun / May 7, 2007 11:19 AM PDT

is this the real article that Harry was pressured to quit over because he wants to keep his credibility?

Of course it's not, or else why isn't he still working in PC world?

This is obviously an re-written/heavily edited version of it. Crawford is ONLY doing it to silence people. so, can you really blame it to be a little "not well thought-out"?

I truly admire what Harry did, it's the kind of personality that is desperately lacking in today's journalism. Not to mention his last name is almost legendary. Wink (no pun intended)

I don't think this is the original

but reading the editors note attached to the article, even that doesn't give any clear idea. Except they are "wondering" why all the attention to the article.

Does he really think he can fool all of the people all of the time.

Wasn't that proven to be false? I distinctly remember someone swapping out the CPU and hard disk.

This article is full of holes but this one seems to be one of the biggest.

I considered getting a macbook pro, but settled for a dell laptop alternative. The reason: for the configuration and hardware I wanted in a macbook pro, for a thousand dollars less I got the same thing going with dell. I also, didn't want to wait around for Leopard to come out and avoid paying the apple tax.

I really really wanted a macbook pro, but I didn't have an extra grand laying around. Sad

With MS working hard to displease customers and my only experince with Apple products being good I may be a convert.

My 10 things I hate about Apple list would be entirly different. I really don't care if they keep a secret about future products. I do care that more games are not available.

They have the ability to fix a lot of their technical issues. Of course then they would have to work hard to avoid Microsoftification.

Apple has a high Brand-value, so it makes sense they fix a high price. People are reluctant to change thier choice beacause of a bit higher price.

business is business. money is virtue.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
