The 'Hate' and 'Love' Apple Stories
By now, you may have heard something about a couple of articles we've been planning about Apple and its products. We sure have.
Both pieces were written by PC World staffers Alan Stafford and Narasu Rebbapragada, who have been around Apple products long enough, in both their personal and professional lives, to have their share of criticisms and compliments for the company's stuff. And both were meant as silly little conversation-starters--originally inspired by the "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" ads--not weighty journalism. If you don't think they're Pulitzer material, we're not offended in the least.
We kicked around a few other less incendiary titles for the two stories, but somehow "10 Things That Sort of Mildly Displease Us About Apple" and "10 Reasons We Think Apple Is Doing Well" didn't quite have the same ring.
One thing for sure: We've never gotten more attention over a couple of articles we hadn't even published. But here they are, finally--judge them for yourself. And then use the Comment links in each story to tell us what you think.
