    What the F is up with Cnet

    I believe that Cnet has become home of the most biased reviews. I have looked over there a few time lately and every single article compares a phone to the iphone. I have finally banned that darn site and refuse to go back there until they get new reviewers and change their obvious bias. DONE, OVER.

    Matthew my friend, I least expected this type of hostility from you towards our good friends over at CNET LMAO :laugh2:

    I used to start my day with a visit over at Cnet. However, as time has passed, their reviewers just can't see anything beyond the iPhone. I am actually surprised they gave the Droid an Editor Choice award. They are getting very stale over there and need some sprucing up. That is why I have submitted my resume to them in hopes of sneaking a few unbiased reviews past the editor. I am still waiting for the call.

    I know how you feel. I no longer read their cellphone reviews because it's become obvious to me that they're drinking the Apple Kool-Aid. If the bias they show to other cellphones was any more transparent it would be glass. I've owned an iPhone and an iPhone 3G and they are indeed fantastic phones. But the iPhone is not the end all and be all of what a cellphone should be. I personally prefer a little more functionality and freedom with the devices I carry and that's why I came back to my beloved BlackBerry.

    J you know that I am the zen man, peace love and I truly lack hostility. But I had a hard day and week, with the wife's morning, afternoon, evening sickness....and too much work plus I'm just feed up with that website. I'm good now, just needed to shout out at the top of my lungs, WTF, and I'm all better now.

    But there unabashed love of all things apple (and apple does make good products) had me a little tweeked.

    I guess I was a bit out of character though...:Eyecrazy: :Eyecrazy: :Eyecrazy:

    I believe using anything other than an iphone bans you from writing for them...but in your resume video you should review the iphone versus any phone and proclaim the iphone the winner and you will get accepted.
