"Who is this guy anyway? I just found some of his articles on the NYT through google & find his reviews uninformative, sort of like a dummies guide to electronics"

He is a very popular writer of how-to computer books (including, yes, 7 "for Dummies" titles) and technology reviews FOR LAYMEN, just the sort of people who prefer their technology without jargon and leavened by a little humor.

A techie on Slashdot would indeed find his reviews uninformative. Slashdot techies are not Pogue's intended audience, never have been.

For some insight onto the kind of people who've bought 3 million of Pogue's books, you could check the Amazon.com reviews of them.
