Really, Jason? I know you dislike Apple, but I'm sorry, I think your insinuation is ridiculous.

I read Apple's article closely. Nowhere does it say a "deep discharge." Rather, they suggest you...

Microsoft's always been great at making tools to build a consumer platform, but (almost) never quite assembled the pieces together when the answer isn't "Windows" or "Office". This is true for...

Looks nice, but I'm confused as to what Olympus's strategy is here, especially the E-P versus the E-PL lines. And, as you imply, where are their nifty lenses?
