Camp Logos took me from know-nothing to advanced (TUAW.com)

Oct 19th 2010 4:03PM @TJLuoma, fair enough, but I don't think photographers are linked to things like oppression, homophobia, child abuse and religious wars. But putting aside my personal feeling of offense when Christianity is mentioned, religion is a personal thing. Keep it to yourself and everything's cool.

Besides, photography and technology overlap, thematically. Christianity and technology don't. At least, not natively. Software being used as a study guide for Christian doctrine is hardly a natural fit. By your logic we should see TUAW cover apps that only plumbers would use. "Do you know how many plumbers there are in the world? And now they are using software compatible with Macs, so that makes it relevant to TUAW!"

I mean, hey, it's not my blog, AOL can do what they want with it. This is just my ¥2.

Camp Logos took me from know-nothing to advanced (TUAW.com)

Oct 19th 2010 1:01PM Meh, I'm with the naysayers, let the Christian blogs cover Christian software. This blog already serves a specific niche. Though to be honest a Christian-themed post makes perfect sense on a fan blog for a company that loves to believe in their own version of reality, instead of *actual* reality.

All right, I'm done being douchey. I hope this post was civil enough for you.

ASUS Eee PC T101MT review (Engadget)

May 8th 2010 2:04PM It seems completely disconnected to reality to expect or even hope for a "well-rounded" device. I've been a gear-head and a gadget freak for a couple of decades now and I have NEVER found a "perfect" anything (and I use Apple products, so that's saying something). To me, it's always a matter of weighing what you like about the device against what you have to put up with. In this review we're treated to a comparison of what this machine does versus what the reviewer would like it to do. She should be reviewing films with this mentality, not devices.

My iPhone is sluggish. An iPad is a closed system. Apple doesn't make a netbook, let alone a netvertible, that will run full MS Office, or other apps that I already own. Also, any netbook is free of the horror that is iTunes. So, comparing the T101MT's screen to the screen of the iPad doesn't help me, since, with the gorgeous screen of the iPad I have to put up with Steve Jobs fingers pressing buttons for me.

I understand, in an abstract way, comparing tablets to the iPad, but on a practical level, you're literally comparing Apples to oranges. Just tell me what is good and bad about the netbook in the context of the netbook--and not the context of your preconceived notions of what a netbook should be (or at least separate that out and put it at the end). I know what I want from a netvertible and what I'm willing to put up with. This review doesn't help me because it's too busy expressing disdain for an imperfect device.
