    The Heavily Biased Pro-Apple Verge Website gets caught...


    "The Verge founding member Chris Ziegler worked at Apple for two months before leaving website

    In a strange case of tech journalism intrigue, former deputy editor and founding member of The Verge Chris Ziegler recently left the publication after it was discovered that he was — and might still be — moonlighting at Apple, a potential conflict of interest for both companies. "

    None of this surprises me ... take an active read of comments posted to Apple product related sites and see the activity level of "Apple supporters" i.e. how quick they are to descend and disparage any comments that challenge and or discredit any products or services marketed by Apple.

    I quote this as a recent example of a practised corporate narrative posted as a comment on a thread that dealt with Apple's ongoing manufacturing shortages / inventory woes and consumer unrest -

    "Why do people care about and put so much personal energy into Apple's stocking situation - especially those who have no intention of purchasing a phone, and at the extreme even clinging to market manipulation conspiracies? Apple will sell a ton of phones like they have every year.

    Much more entertaining would be a map showing locations of Note 7 fires."

    Any title starting with "The Truth Revealed!" is obvious click bait ********.

    Apple isn't some secret public enemy. Take your tinfoil hats elsewhere.

    Seriously... I have (mostly) defended Apple tooth and nail for decades because I enjoy their user experience. I keep hoping Apple will pay me for it, but so far so luck.

    Apple pays its marketers enough, that would be like you (and me) reklmamirovali their products free of charge (if you know what I mean)
