You can't pay me enough to read this.

Ars Technica has a review (subsequently relabelled as a "preview") of the new Mac Mini. Great news, I thought, so I decided to read it. Unfortunately, what I read was some horrible mishmash of blogger-esque narcissistic stream of consciousness "writing" semi-squashed into a regular review format. I thought writing this awful was confined to amateur sites (I consider AT to be pro-am) or my local free computing monthly. Now, if I wanted a blog writeup, I would go read one. I went to AT because I wanted a technical, professional (p)review.

I complain about videogame journalism from time to time because the standard of journalism and writing there tends to be pretty bad, but this is even worse.
