David Pogue is awesome

So, I read an article the other day by John Dvorak, claiming that there is a media bias in favor of Apple because most technology writers use Macintoshes. I though this was somewhat simplistic, but I thought I would write David Pogue, the technology writer at the New York Times, and ask him what he thought about it. I was really stoked that he actually responded! Here was what he said, which was awesome:
He’s right, but he’s got it backward! Smart people use Macs because they ARE better (a point he mentions, but does not dispute in his column). He makes it sound as though we’re Mac fans by some genetic lottery, rather than having tried both systems and made a choice.
What a guy!
