    Quoth Dvorak: "Go to Craigslist and hire three programmers and an IT guy "

    John C. Dvorak rails against the LAPD’s $7 million dollar email deal with Google. I agree that $7 million is a lot of money to spend on email, but I don’t know all the details of the deal, so I’m not going to cast too many aspersions there. I will, however, take Dvorak to task for his knee-jerk reaction to “hire three programmers and an IT guy”. End users expect… Read More

  • Fun with Twitter fakery: Dvorak versus Rupley

    I just got around to watching last Wednesday’s Cranky Geeks video podcast starring John C. Dvorak and Sebastian Rupley (plus a panel of guests that rotate each week) and found this bit to be kind of funny. Dvorak’s step-son apparently set up a Twitter account under “SRupley” and posted updates as Rupley, like: I belched….mmm…peanut butter. Yum After 7, no… Read More

    Dvorak: HD DVD was just Microsoft messing with Sony

    Oh John C. Dvorak, I could read your stuff all day long. And your weekly web show, Cranky Geeks, keeps me looking forward to Wednesdays now, if only to catch a fleeting glimpse of the crankiness that’ll undoubtedly ensue. Now the crankiness has spilled over into the HD DVD versus Blu-ray thing. The very thing that I, believe you me, am sick of writing about, hearing about, and reading… Read More

  • Dvorak drives a truck over the OLPC XO-1

    Dvorak drives a truck over the OLPC XO-1


    Now with free carrying case. How did I miss this? One of our favorite curmudgeons, John C. Dvorak, hits the nail right on the head with his assessment of the OLPC — send $200 of rice to poor countries, not a $200 computer. The inventors and backers of the OLPC project trust and believe in education as a way out of dire circumstances. Fine, but isn’t a laptop a bit useless if… Read More

  • Old Man Dvorak says 'the Google phone is doomed'

    Old Man Dvorak says 'the Google phone is doomed'

    Every industry needs an old, crotchety curmudgeon. We have the always-entertaining John C. Dvorak who’s lately seemed to be slowly slipping into senility. That’s okay, though. That’s okay. He’s our grandpa and we love him and you don’t just cut people out of your life because they’ve started going crazy. His latest outburst is against the Google-led… Read More

  • NEWSFLASH: John C. Dvorak Negative About Something

    NEWSFLASH: John C. Dvorak Negative About Something

    Crotchety old crapapple John C. Dvorak is predicting that the whole Web 2.0 isn’t going to last. Of course it’s not going to last, guy. Nothing lasts forever…even cold November rain. I tend to disagree that there’s going to be a “burst” of the Web 2.0 bubble. That word connotates something negative happening. I’d like to think of it as the period of… Read More

    Dvorak Uses a Mac, Frogs Fall From the Sky Over Indiana, End of World Nigh

    John C. Dvorak is tech commentator from when I was still running around in diapers. The man has literally been “blogging” in print since before most of use knew how to type “10 PRINT ‘HELLO WORLD'” Trust me. The guy’s a legend. But he doesn’t like Apple’s hype. So when he finally admitted yesterday that he actually uses and likes Macs, my… Read More

  • Dvorak Wants Us All To Stop Worshiping the iPhone

    Dvorak Wants Us All To Stop Worshiping the iPhone

    “This is the last week of Apple iPhone hype, hyperbole, and hand-wringing…. Hitler got less coverage when he invaded Poland.” Good move, Dvorak. I mean, to a point I agree with your sentiment and feel like the whole of the tech “journalism” world has completely abdicated its responsibility to be impartial in its coverage of the Jes… I mean iPhone, but… Read More

  • Dvorak Sez iPhone Bat Dead in 40 Mins, Continues to Hit Magical Crack Pipe

    Dvorak Sez iPhone Bat Dead in 40 Mins, Continues to Hit Magical Crack Pipe


    Alright so, I’ve made no secret of my complete disenchantment of the iPhone. My primary reason for distaste is also because I think the battery is going to be entirely worthless. Nevertheless, something weird is going on with Mr. John C. Dvorak. Last week he issued a proclamation saying that Apple should withdraw the iPhone (not a bad idea). He gave all sorts of reasons that… Read More

  • Dvorak Hits Magical Crack Pipe, Says Apple Should Pull iPhone

    Dvorak Hits Magical Crack Pipe, Says Apple Should Pull iPhone

    That John C. Dvorak is up to it again. Making radical claims year after year until one of them actually hits and then he claims credit – real classy. Dvorak’s latest claim is that Apple should pull the plug on the iPhone before it’s too late. He goes on to say that Apple is merely an advertising company and the iPhone is way over-hyped. Says the silly goose: What Apple… Read More
