MP: Crunchies are a scam, and Ruby’s clueless

Saturday morning, and Señor Puppet is not happy. Why? Well, the Crunchies were handed out last night, and it seems the non-existent Chrome OS won Top Crunchie, or whatever they call it.  No, wait- Best Technology Achievement.  Latest tirade is here, and while we’re at it, MP also blasts away at Palm’s Jon Rubenstein for his outrageous claim he’s never fiddled with an iPhone, not once.  How do we know MP is upset?  Easy to tell.

Here’s a pro-tip for people interested in improving Palm’s marketshare and long-term viability in about five minutes: shove a Palm Pre down the back of Jon Rubinstein’s throat until he stops twitching. There, I just doubled your stock price.

How To Run Chrome OS as a Virtual Machine

All this on a MacPro, of course. The wrath or mirth of Jobs shall not be mocked. Has Moshe been alerted?

Commentards pile up on SJVN

SJVN posts about how Chrome OS will supplant Windows among the Joe Consumer crowd; the commentards (read Microsoft and Apple fan boys) pile up on him like a sandlot team. But SJVN is right. Chrome OS devices will succeed where other Linuxes failed because they will be appealing to the average consumer the way Microsoft once did. They don’t have to be perfect and the price is right. They’ll just works and that’s good enough. Look at the goddam Flip camera, fer chrissakes! The damn things are flying off shelves like free crack at a rehab palace. And they’re getting better. The supercheap HD versions make my old $599 handheld video camera

look like crap – which it is, come to think of it. Windows in some form will survive but only to support resource hogs like AutoCAD and Photoshop. In fact,  eventually, Microsoft will have to build its own machines to run Windows, ‘cos nobody will buy Windows to just run the internet from your device anymore. Soon after this comes to pass, someone will eventually kill Ballmer, and scream, “WAKE UP, PEOPLE!” to the employees, and come up with a version of Internet Explorer that runs like Chrome OS. By that time, it will probably be too late for Microsoft, it will move into another business or will implode upon itself. But don’t weep ‘softie fans – something more stupid, more evil and more single-minded

will rise from the ashes – it happened to AT&T didn’t it?

Mossberg meets Future Mossberg

Mosspuppet gets caught in some kind of weird time warp that involves Michael Arrington and the ethics of tech journalists. Or something like that.

Our good friend, Brian Hogg, aka the puppet master, aka the creator of Rant Puppets, takes Mosspuppet on a journey into the future. Or is it the past?
