San Francisco Chronicle writer Dan Fost responds in a weblog post to criticism (including mine) of his asinine “[Stubborn Apple at Risk of Making the Same Mistake Twice]” article. He’s trying to pull the old “every time you criticize Apple, no matter how warranted the criticism, Apple fanatics jump down your throat” trick. I have no doubt that this can and does happen; the problem here, and in so many other cases, is that his criticism wasn’t the least bit justified.
So he doesn’t actually respond to even a single point of criticism about his almost completely shoddy article.
