There are lots of great articles, and some really bad ones, on the Internet. Though we link to all of them at MacOS News Around The Web, some of them deserve special mention here. Most of what we will mention within these pages will be among the best, but on occasion we will talk about articles that are so bad or so wrong we just have to say something. Consider them mini-editorials on our part about things we think you might also be interested in.

Best [12:00 PM] Low End Mac - Missing From MACWORLD
Everybody has been talking about what was announced at MACWORLD, but other than no OS X, nobody has really addressed what wasnit there that should or could have been. The Low End Macis Dan Knight takes a light hearted look at what would have made MACWORLD a bit more complete. Our favorite quote from the article:

Maybe I should have just ordered it for US$190 from Outpost.com, or tried to find a deal on Lucentis Orinoco IEEE Turbo PC Card.) It does help you see what a value Appleis US$99 AirPort card is.

And more chairs. My backside still hurts from sitting on the floor all week. Reviewer - Kyle DiAddario

Best [12:00 PM] AppleLinks: Farr Site - SUMMER HUMMER BUMMER
John Farr takes a very sublime, roundabout route to talk about everybodyis favorite topic, Appleis G4 Cube. From hummingbirds to a i54 Ford to MACWORLD, we are treated to an enjoyable diversion from the constant barrage of "Apple this," and "Mac that." Our favorite quote from this piece:

My idea of a collection was a big jar full of live butterflies. Thatis right, your Farr Site curmudgeon is an old softie. I even stopped fishing 15 years ago because the fish were too pretty to bash on the head.

Yes, it is one of THOSE articles. Enjoy! Reviewer - Kyle DiAddario
