TUAW: Ten Five Things I Hate (and Love) About You

Dear TUAW,

Here are five things I hate and five things I love about you…

</3 – It seems as if your hyperlinking is done by an senile 80 year-old chimp. I never know if I will find a useless page for the tag “OmniFocus” or an actual link to that demo video you’re touting.

❤ – Unlike your brother Engadget, you only post pertinent Apple news.

</3 – You have that ugly new Leopard-themed background.

❤ – Your writing style is so glib.

</3 – Your homepage is cluttered.

❤ – Your acronym is fun to say.

</3 – You don’t post as often as aforementioned brother.

❤ – Your graphics are so classy (or they’re intentionally overdone).

</3 – You seem to be sponsored by AOL.

❤ – You have lots of pictures.

An Ode to TUAW

As those of you who have looked at the Links in any detail will already know, I ❤ TUAW (The Unofficial Apple Weblog). I love their witty hyperlinking, their obsession with Apple to meet and exceed mine, their acronym that sounds like a world but isn’t. Simply put, I am in love with TUAW. Obviously, a while back the announcement that they were hiring delighted me. I knew I didn’t stand a chance, but the thought of moonlighting as a high-powered tech blogger intrigued me so. Sadly, the already shaky bubble burst when the adended (or whatever the word is) the addendum “you must be 18 or older”. I mean, no wonder they’re always a couple minutes behind Engadget, with old fogies running the place.

P.S. That was so not sour grapes.
