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 [3:30 PM] Right On Mac: PC Confessions - Would you install Windows ME on an iPaq?
We had been away from the goings on with the PC Confessions gang for a few weeks, but this week is high drama indeed. Janet is contemplating plunging to her doom and Nick finds himself on the wrong end of a good right hook. Our favorite quote from this piece:

"Nick," Janet sobbed as she peered over the edge, "Youire a low down dirty scoundrel. You deserve to be with that PC queen Lexi. Why donit you just leave me alone?" Nick felt someone grab his arm forcefully. He turned around and came face to face with Jake.

Canit we all just get along? Reviewer - Kyle DiAddario

Best/Worst [3:30 PM] Mac Night Owl - Is it Too Early To Speculate About Macworld Expo SF?
It is that time again. As MACWORLD SF draws near, it is time to dust off the old rumors and re-wrap them for another spin around the Mac Web. This article falls as a Best/Worst because it offers zero new insight, and does exactly what we just said...rewords old "news." However, it is good because much of this has bee swept under the rug since MACWORLD NY, and it is fun to think about what "might be." Our favorite quote from this piece:

All worthy subjects to talk about. No doubt some Mac sites will claim inside knowledge and provide specific product specs and dates and times of release. Maybe Appleis legal eagles will have to work overtime trying to prevent proprietary information from getting into the wrong hands.

Talk of rumors, Apple legal, and the possibility of G4 PowerBooks? Talk about walking on the wild side. :-) Reviewer - Kyle DiAddario
