John C. Dvorak explains how he trolls Mac users

Ah, you gotta love this guy. He’s been trolling the tech community since tech journalism was invented, and people still fall hook, line and sinker for him every time.

Here’s him explaining how he earns tidal-waves of page impressions every time he writes something about Macs.

  1. Great little vid Dan. I really enjoy listening to Dvorak on TWiT and he’s great for stirring up some controversy… his recent Sun / Apple merger speculation is a prime example, the guys over at Cult of Mac were really peeved about that one!

    It’s cool for someone of his intelligence and status to have his sense of humour strongly intact too.

  3. This guy is a classic.

    Some of his classic quotes care of wikipedia….

    # The Macintosh uses an experimental pointing device called a ‘mouse’. There is no evidence that people want to use these things.
    * San Francisco Examiner, February 1984[citation needed]

    # The Noisiest buzz in the industry lately has been over the emerging use of cable TV systems to provide fast network data transmissions using a device called a cable modem. But the likelihood of this technology succeeding is zilch.
    * PC Magazine, Sept. 1995.[citation needed]

    gold!
