Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 and ZS1

Microsoft’s grinning robots vs the Brotherhood of the Mac

I am a Mac guy, and even I found this terribly amusing: “I know Windows is awful. Everyone knows Windows is awful. Windows is like the faint smell of piss in a subway: it’s there, and there’s nothing you can do about it. OK, OK: I know other operating systems are available. But their advocates…Read More
