Hey, it is the 21st century. This is how we do it these days. Let's protest Wall Street next and hate on corporations. Just not Apple, because they are a non-profit, charitable organization that really gives back to the community with it's low priced, open source hardware and software. No, wait....

It's funny how no one can see this side of Steve Jobs, and if they do they choose to ignore it. I've disliked Jobs since his early days at Atari, where he ripped off the genius of Apple - Steve Wozniak.

@FredericL There is a lot of pressure to get the news published ASAP, and accurately. I've posted rumors or hoaxes in the past and had to post an update or a correction. Some of it sounds very true and plausible. Depending on your viewpoint, it can sound even better. With minutes between a study being published and blog writers wanting the "scoop", it can mean some hoaxes are released as real news. There is pretty much nothing that can be done to correct that with the seconds-count schedule we face. Intuition and "gut feelings" can help. Being the last to release the news and fact checking every news post can work, it just won't be successful. You'll miss the hoaxes, but also the real news.

When you are a pro-Microsoft writer, you tend to make sure the anti-Microsoft reports are accurate. :) It sounded fishy from the start.
