I thought it was time for Gordon to get his goggles and wiffle-ball Bat out of the closet and beat the hell out of these birds.

Context:: Gordon said in one of his podcast rants that he was not scared of the attack birds in the Alfred Hitchcock movie and he would beat them with a whiffle bat.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! I believe the MPC team will post one final article of mine in the coming weeks -- a knock-down, drag-out buyer's guide on tablets. And I'm sure it will provoke controversy. Anyhow, thanks for all the awesome feedback and support over the years. It's VERY much appreciated. I was with Maximum PC/boot since 1996, and saw it ALL. Very good times, and I trust Katherine, Gordon, and the rest of the team will keep up the super-high standards that you know and appreciate. -Jon

I must of read through the article like three times before I realized it was a joke. Really enjoyed it.

Yeah, some people missed the "humor" tag at the end of the article.

Jon's leaving for Wired.com so he gets one last hurrah. Lighten up folks.

Glitch is back!!! Hell yes, I loved the Glitch articles at the end of the old MPC's, always had me rolling with laughter as did this one. All these n00bs commenting that it is dumb or not funny just don't understand, they must not have ready a MPC pre 2005.

Methinks someone got some Onion in my MaxPC.

It's some kind of "Onion Style" advertorial for the Angry Birds game app I think (or a new incarnation of it). Which game  I have never played and now which, given this creepy ad play, I never will.

 

Double plus unfunny waste of time.

 

Feh!

... *checks calendar*...

It's not April 1st, and this article certainly isn't real or funny... what purpose does this serve?

I have to disagree with one point... I thought this article was very funny. But you are correct, it isn't real and it isn't April 1, but why should fun be limited to just one day a year?
