I feel that I am jaded by the fact that at the end of every day we the people (IT Pros) are the butt of a horrible joke with regards to how platforms market fictitious features and operability.

I GML ( my real name) is seriously thinking about crusading for the comedic relief on such subject matters. I would like to know how many folks would feel inclined to back such a comedic adventure.

this impulse has been fueled by the purchase of my first IPhone. I blame the Devs who have told me that IOS is the only platform that will support many of their integrations and features so I took the plunge after being an Android monkey for the last 4 years.

I feel bamboozled and cheated about the platform. Even though my work experience has given me ample experience and exposure to the OS. What a lie on both parties and what a joke.

All platforms suck in their own way and I want to preach about it.

your fellow CPU deploying, Vista hating, AD administering, OSX suffering brethren.

There's a bunch of stuff like that already. Not saying you shouldn't do it, but I'd start small.

Maybe start with a blog, turn that material into maybe small comic strips, then get someone to make flash videos, or do standup on youtube.

The only problem is that the masses won't "get" a lot of that humor, meaning the market may not be that good for it. But yeah, those of us who DO "get it" tend to like funny stuff.
