Opinion: The 10 biggest blog bores

They go on, and on, and on. And on


We've rounded up the 10 web writers who just can't help but ramble on and on.

8. Jim Goldman

This smug CNBC commentator is the only guy in Silicon Valley who wears a suit and tie, and seems completely oblivious to the joke.

He's full of commentary on most big Valley companies, often heavily reliant on the infamous "sources inside the company". Finest hour: fancies himself an Apple expert but was royally and publicly spanked by Fake Steve Jobs over sloppy (and flatly wrong) reporting.

9. Paul Thurrott

Want to know what the 2,874th line of your Windows Registry really means? Paul Thurrott will tell you. In a seven-part, 5,000-word blog post (bonus: with screenshots!).

But Thurrott is perhaps most notable for his tendency to compose angry-sounding blog entries aimed at anyone who dares criticise Windows, as demonstrated in this hilarious blog by one of Thurrott's targets, ZDNet's Ed Bott.

10. David Coursey

Holier than thou and - more important - smarter than thou, Coursey (the 'Tech Inciter') pushes the hot-topic buttons of the day while expounding on his superior knowledge of everything from iPhone architecture to how the First Amendment should be interpreted.
