Hell, one of their latest articles was Five reasons why you don't need a Mac, and they were five VERY compelling reasons.



Are there 5? I can think of one, and it's enough

Most recently, Time Warner and NBC are not willing to convert their online library to be compatible with the iPad, seeing it as too costly. Article: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2364290,00.asp

Flash isn't going anywhere and I don't see Apple eventually budging to add support for Flash, but it looks like we'll just have to wait and see on this one...

I'll buy and wear this so that once my Droid has Froyo/2.2 with flash 10.1 it will be even more relevant.

15 craps and counting.

As a graphic/web designer, I could wear this shirt all of the time.

Unfortunately, this idea has been done to death over the past few weeks, so pass.

The problem with this shirt is that only tech people are going to get this. Hell, I was at a family restaurant and the cashier didn't understand the Donkey Kong on lunch break T-shirt I was wearing.

The Mac I use at work is way more crashy than any PC I've ever used in a professional office. It's probably because I'm running Adobe products, but everything I have ever heard from graphics pros is that Macs are 'made' for running graphics programs.

I feel betrayed.

I agree with this entirely...nerdiest shirt ever.

Balderdash! Everybody knows that Flash would, uh, see the apple coming and.. vibrate through it. Then he.. I mean it... would go back in time and convince Steve Jobs to support flash on the iPhones, iPads, and other iObject. Pfah!

You do realize that this design isn't showing Apple in a positive light, but is instead detracting Apple for its incompatibility with Flash, don't you?

I can't decide if this is a slash against Apple or Adobe.

I mean...for one, the Flash is dead...but on the other hand, the Apple is poison. Am I supporting Apple or Adobe by wearing this?

My thought precisely. I really want to get this shirt for my husband who works at Adobe... but I can't decide if this would truly portray his feelings on the matter.

My mother called me asking if Apple was killing Comic Books. This woke me up and made me go to my computer to explain the joke to her.

I think the shirt can be viewed as comical from both viewpoints. I have a pc but use an iPhone and the lack of flash stinks! I still love my phone though... and love the shirt!! The graphics and the description cracked me up!

P.S. I am not a nerd... Just like to use gadgets, not build, study or take them apart... I got the joke right away!

Sorry Woot, consider me thoroughly unimpressed.



This is nothing like Flash powering a Blender shirt. The two have nothing to do with each other. This is a play on the Flash/Apple battle and it is very relevant to the current tech debate/fight the two companies have going on. This is a clever shirt.

Apple isn't going to kill Flash since Google/Android is going to overtake the iPhone this year in sales and it supports Flash with Froyo and webOS and Windows Phone are also going to support it as well as pretty much every other tablet manufacturer besides Apple.

they were never good at picking shirts to go out in the first place.

Besides the main tech reference, I wonder if the artist got the idea for the design itself from "A Poison Tree" by William Blake.
If so, that's even cooler.

Ha!
Nearly once a day at the least I hear something from someone relating to flash not working on the various i-gadgets. But flash will not die! At least I sure hope not.

Vote!

I love Apple products.. But there's no way I'd own an iPad... Just seems like an iPod Touch on steroids, to me.

Waste of money to have an iPad when I have both an iPod Touch and a MacBook Pro

At first, I didn't understand this shirt because I was thinking, "I have Adobe Flash on my mac....." I had totally forgotten about the iPod Touch on steroids.

Hell, one of their latest articles was Five reasons why you don't need a Mac, and they were five VERY compelling reasons.



Reason #4: "There’s a larger library of software for PCs"

VERY compelling reasons? That's may have been true ten years ago, but the reality now is that Boot Camp exists, and allows you to install Windows 7/Vista/XP and run every app available to PC users.
