This entire list and the mere existence of it is pathetic. But the cherry on top is the last item. What’s the 10th feature that would make the iPhone 5 a must-have purchase in 2011?

Wow. Just wow.
He makes the argument that Google’s Blogger outage negates their big push for moving to the cloud made this week at I/O. In other words, more FUD.
First of all, using Blogger as the example is stupid. Blogging without the cloud? What a genius idea.
Second, his “question” is what if this had happened to Google Docs? Well, offline Gmail, Docs, and Calendar are exactly what Google has been using internally for months and stated at I/O that they would ship this summer.
Microsoft and its extensions are clearly scared shitless of the concept of Chrome OS. That’s not to say Chromebooks will be a slam dunk hit — we’ll see. But the concept of simple, cheap, fast machines that don’t run Windows and keep everything synced in the cloud is a very compelling one.
I still see this as a big part of the Microsoft “squeeze”. Chromebooks and iPads pressure Windows from below. Macs pressure from above.
Ed Bott predicts a wave of “serious malware” is about to hit OS X. Why? Because as it becomes more popular, it will be the target of more attackers.

Oh yes, Ed Bott.
