I recently just found their App several weeks ago, and checked it out. I didn't like it too much, and realized just how immature these guys are.. I mean I can understand there loyalty to Apple-- I am not a fanboy but I do use Apple products.

Some of them calling other phones "iPhone wannabes", and calling HTC "Here to Copy", I am sorry but I love my iPhone, but I remember reading an article several weeks ago before the iPhone 4 came out, and they act like the 3GS was the best phone on the market-- after playing around with the HTC Droid Incredible, I thought Apple definitely needed to get back to work to maintain it's edge on Android, and in my opinion I think I did.

I mean talking about some of the biggest fanboys on the internet it is ridiculous! I am very opened minded when it comes to technology, and have owned a lot of different stuff including Windows PC before I switched to Mac. But saying Bill Gates is a criminal for what he done for the PC industry is foolishly childish!

I ended up deleting their App, because I couldn't stop laughing on just how much they held onto Apple, calling Adobe "ingrates", seriously?

They are a bit over the top here and there, but I think a lot of it is very much tongue-in-cheek. I especially like the comments from their resident "troll", Zune Tang. I actually followed his tweets for awhile, quite amusing.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

MDN may be run by extreme fanboys, but generally speaking their takes are dead-on. Steeped in pro-Apple rhetoric, sure, but if you can look past that, these guys really know their stuff.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

I have their app on my 3GS, and bookmarked on all my Macs, but some of the stuff they say pertaining to computers makes me cringe - almost like they have Michael Dell's Mac equivalent mindset.

My biggest problem with MDN is their right wingnut slant on anything that might be political. It brings in some of the worst slurs I've seen, and anyone that tries to even politely bring sanity to the thread is also dragged through the mud. That's unacceptable conduct in a supposedly technical website.

Although I do see occasional politically charged commentary on MDN, its mostly the commentators that push it to extremes. In this divisive political climate we live in, its hard to find a blog of any kind that doesn't have a political slant.

Exactly what I was about to say. To some degree, MDN can be faulted for failing to rein it in though.

The site was alright until they started infesting it with their immature right wing opinion pieces.
