Major C|Net Writer lies to Readers!!!

My Headline true??... I think so. You know, I don't get paid for what I do. But there are some out there with better grammer then I posting articles like shit and getting paid well to do it.

Case in point, this review by Rich Brown. It seems like he takes off many points off his review because of multimedia software that runs slowly which is non-native to sart with. What kind of dumb ass is this guy? Of course a non-native software of any type is gonna run slower. Are you that dense??

The iMac, whether it be G5 or Intel based was not made for Photoshop professionals. so why review it using this software?

Then you write:
"But if you want to run Photoshop or a nonnative video-editing program such as Sorenson Squeeze, we highly recommend you wait until the software catches up before purchasing a new iMac Core Duo."
Are you really that dumb?? You run a Professional App on a non pro computer, knowing it's not running natively then deduct points because of it?? They pay you to be this dumb?? Shoot, I need to get a job at C|Netso i can get paid to write crap like this and get paid for it.

You want to test the video editing ability of this iMac of it's target user?, test it with with it's native iMovie HD, which is already Intel ready. Why would you test this computer with a non-native, pro app and then base your score so heavily on it? Why would you not test these computers with the same amout of memory? Even with the Intel mac haveing the most, what type of nim-rod does a test like that?? I mean users using the software he's testing here are using PowerMacs Towers, not iMacs.

This just seems like a review looking to make the iMac look bad from the starting gate.
"Don't edit video on a Intel based iMac it sucks" is what you are telling your readers and that's just a lie.

Your giving a unfair review that gives far too much weight to the performance of Rosetta.
7 out of 10.? You rating Rosetta or the iMac? You can't be rating the iMac if deduction of your score is based on pro apps that are running on Rosetta. Bottom line, Rich Brown is lying to you. And C|Net is also for posting this article.

The Rules
1. Instructions must boot Windows XP (at least), not Vista or any other version of Windows.
2. Windows must be able to coexist with Mac OS X and each system may not interfere with the operation of the other (basically a traditional dual boot system where one OS is running at a time)
3. Your method, upon starting the computer, must offer the user to boot either OS X or Windows XP (hint: GRUB)
4. The first person to email complete instructions, including pictures of the boot process to will be the winner. Instructions will be peer reviewed once they are received and once the solution is guaranteed working, the prize money will be transferred via paypal
5. You give this website the rights to post your solution
6. If it is determined impossible to boot Windows on the Mac by March 23, 2006, all donations will be donated to a charitable cause (please send suggestions to If you donated prior to 2006/06/23 2:10pm CST, and you do not wish to donate to charity, I will return your money minus the paypal fee.
