The Bulletin Gets Lambasted By Mac Fans

All it took was one sentence in the Bend Bulletin calling Microsoft innovators, and the Mac fan boys had a field day with it. Here was the actual sentence from the story:

When Apple Computer created the iPod, Nike created the waffle-soled running shoe, Microsoft launched Windows and NASA put a man on the moon, they clearly were innovating.
Obiviously, that made the Mac folks angry...
We'll rewrite the sentence correctly now: "When Apple Computer created the Mac and the iPod, Nike created the waffle-soled running shoe, and NASA put a man on the moon, they clearly were innovating." There, that's much better.
My guess is the reporter isn't a die-hard geek, and was probably getting that anecdote directly from the guy they're profiling in the story, but it's still hilarious to me how folks on both sides of this will just freak out sometimes to defend their platform.
