John C. Dvorak, whose crankiness knows no bounds, is a contributing editor of PC Magazine, for which he has been writing two columns, including the popular Inside Track, since 1986.
The consistently irritated Dvorak has won eight national awards from the Computer Press Association, including Best Columnist and Best Column.
Recent episodes do not seem to be included on the Cranky Geeks YouTube channel, and the videos on crankygeeks.com were not easily available for embedding here. Which makes me cranky. You’ll just have to watch via the website, like the rest of us. Curse you Cranky Geeks!!

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Skype Technologies S.A. will make its highly anticipated debut on the Apple Inc. iPhone Tuesday, but Canadian users will be one of the only countries in the world left shut out.
“There is a patent-license issue in Canada which prevents us from making Skype available on the iPhone,” Chaim Haas, a spokesperson on behalf of Skype, told ComputerWorld Canada in an e-mail.
The free Skype iPhone app will allow non-Canadian users to make Skype-to-Skype calls at no cost, call landlines or non-Skype cell phones at a reduced rate, and use the tool’s instant messaging service.
