So super-commenter and guest blogger Thomas was very angered by this comic. His phrase, in an e-mail to me that I hope he didn't think was private, called it "pandering to the point of self-mockery" and I think I agree. This comic is Randy saying "boo hoo, I liked this product and now it's gone. boo hoooooo also sony suxors"
I really have nothing else to say. This comic is just simple and dumb. "My product was great, whoever stopped making it should go to hell." xkcd needs to stop being a website that just complains about technology products that Randy doesn't like.
And for anyone who laughed at the tired old "someone is pretending to be me ON THE INTERNET" joke just know that it's from here: Bash.org, # 5775. Remember when xkcd used to be about new jokes, not just copying another person's joke and going "hey, look, this funny thing happened to me also!" And seriously, how labored can you get? "I hope he doesn't get revenge by messing with what I type!" Why not just draw a cartoon bad guy going "Gosh, I hope a piano doesn't fall on my head today!"
Anyway, a trusted friend who usually likes xkcd a lot more than me has told me that the next comic is just godawful, so I am going to stop writing and read it now. Discuss amongst yourselves.
