Farking thread about cool turns into a geek tab slap fight over electronics. But hey, we lost the music tab which, at its worst, was several billion times cooler than a gadgetgasm, or somebody dressed like a Japanase cartoon driving to a con in a car shaped like a croissant.

"So not" cool that it pains me to witness it.

Sing along with the indifferent people.
Sing along and it might just get you through.
Laugh along with the withdrawn people.
Laugh along even though they're laughing at you,
and the stupid things that you do,
because you think that geek is cool.

nulluspixiusdemonica: LasersHurt: This is a blindingly inane point of view, and I hope you are not in any position of power in the Tech world.

I would have said "spot on". Tablet 'computers' are for the technologically backward. They serve no additional function outside of appearing 'cool' and 'intelligent', with the *only* benefit being a slightly larger viewing area. Everything else is downside.

Anyone arguing for their use with reference to productivity is either intentionally or unintentionally delusional. They're toys and status symbols. Nothing more.

I want to be sure you're both aware you're referring to a form factor that includes full Windows 8 machines. Are you both aware of this?

Being able to write that much and say absolutely nothing deserves some kind of reward or recognition. That was awesome.

Scraping the bottom of the barrel for an idea for this week's cranky blog is not cool
