The best laugh I’ve had all day came from Tom’s Hardware’s review of the Dell DJ. Ehrm. Actually, I think it’s supposed to be written: “DahDahDahDAHDAH Dell DJ.” But I could be wrong.
The suckfest our anonymous reviewer goes through to get this thing to … well, work, is amazing. Seriously, how do you release a product like that with a straight face?
For readers out there who haven’t been keeping track of the PC universe, Tom’s Hardware together with AnandTech are two of the largest and most respected independent PC hardware review sites on the net.

Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
