Soft-serve ice cream is TEH EBIL

I thought this was funny, even if it did come from WIRED and Steven Levy's egotistical Backchannel operation. Read it all.

For the record, soft serve ice cream machines are costly; difficult to maintain; difficult to repair; difficult to clean; you name it. They have become more sophisticated in recent years but are still costly headaches. Unless you make your own soft-serve by hand you will pay a premium for the "experience".

Besides, Taylor was recently taken over by Middleby, a giant manufacturer of commercial ovens that has been swallowing loads of smaller companies in recent years. Yes: that Wikipedia article has been paid-edited.

and as long as we're talking about this....ask a Wikipedian why the Mister Softee article is such a mess. Paid editing would probably be a considerable help....
