Garage Company Stuck in Neutral

If you've never read The Onion, you might want to start. This site has satire in the tradition of the old National Lampoon, though a heckuva lot cleaner. Nat Lamp died before the computer market really took hold, so it is The Onion that can skewer our favorite devices and vendors.

A recent story talks about a computer company that began in a garage three decades ago, and is now in a smaller garage.

While not nearly as funny as stuff they've written about Steve Jobs, it is a fairly clever little piece of humor. If you find something funnier, shoot the link to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
