    Writers for The Onion moonlight at PC World?

    • 2 Comments
    Although the subject "Apple Monopoly Attacked" might seem to be the stuff of satire written at The Onion, it's not. Since today's not April Fools, I'll take the PC World blog entry at face value: Norway Outlaws iTunes . I thought the conventional wisdom...
