iGodwin

Two days before the iPhone hits the streets in the US, John Dvorak bags a Godwin point with this stupid rant less than elegant analogy:

I am sick of it. It’s all anyone talks about. It dominates the news. It dominates the podcasts and videocasts and magazines. Hitler got less coverage when he invaded Poland.

Do you know how to read? The Wikipedia page that you linked to clearly states that Godwin's law refers to comparisons with the Nazis or Hitler, not merely mentioning them in a sentence. I guess this just shows the intellect of the average Mac user.

You're the one who needs to learn how to read. The presence of "less" in the last sentence makes it a comparison.
