I wasn't kidding about the last line of the last diary entry. The hype now has even hit the editorial cartoons. Oh boy, if you really want to see what happens when someone who know's nothing about the computer industry-and perhaps about computers in general-you have to look no further than the funnies. I think they should stick to kicking Bill Clinton in the nads because when they try to summ up anything in the industry they end up not only coming from left-field, but often just look like morons. The type that were last seen plucking banjos on the porch. So far only one has gotten it even slightly right. He depicted an end of the world freak screaming about the selling out to the devil and how everyone should repent. The bystander near him remarks "Jeez, I can't stand these mac users". Now were getting close to the truth. I dare any of these freaks to rent "Triumph of the Nerds" and see how many times Bill Gates was caught sitting next to Steve Jobs, and see if they get a clue. I'm not betting on it myself, but it would make for a good deprograming session of some kind.
