Discussion of which ads we like, and which ads we think are perhaps misleading
I recently got to spend some time with a Dell Mini 9 Netbook with OS X installed. I was not impressed. Maybe we could talk about the whole Netbook phenomena and our thoughts about Apple?s participation. Cough Tablet Cough
I went as far as getting an MSI Win to use as a proof of concept, installed OSX and promptly sold it 2 weeks later. So I can chime in on that!

WHERE ARE ALL THE MAC USERS?
Something that has been bugging me is where are all the Mac users? Last quarter 2.2 million macs sold yet MacHeist sold 88,000 bundles. A huge number but a tiny fraction of the total Mac population. Do ?normal? mac users buy online software? Why are podcast audiences in the single thousands when there are millions of Mac users? Just a thought!
