    So, I barely ever visit cnet because their reviews aren't even that great to begin with, and half of the staff they have working on those "shows" look like very uneducated people.

    But, I just wanted to see what they would say about the iPad. And is it just me or is everyone, except for Brian T-something completely hate Apple and all their products?
    I mean, every time you hear that fat blonde lady talk about Apple, the never says anything that even makes sense.

    I'm sorry, I just think that they're very bias. Just because when I see the Microsoft videos, no one even talks smack. So.. what's with that?
    Does MS pay more?

    CNet has not been worth a crap since James Kim died.

    The fact that those "reviewers" aren't really able to see what the iPad does or who it's for. I can even review the product better, and it isn't my job.

    CNet has been around a very long time. Almost from the beginning of the public entry into the internet.

    I have to say that I have find it useful for very little over the years.

    In other words if they disagree with you, they are somehow inferior:confused:

    Cnet is a joke, I only go there couple of times a week. If people want to read only a heandfull of yesturday's news then cnet is the place. I go to engadget and gizmodo for my tech news. Cnet are huge apple haters.

    Engadget all the way. They actually deliver with no favoritism, and they tell it how it is. Just saying, Cnet aren't that great at reviewing products. They're even the slowest when it comes to keeping people up to date with what's new.

    No, I don't care about them no agreeing with me. I just hate how they only stress on the bad, and never pay any attention to the good.

    CNET has been a joke for years now. The reviews are lackluster and bare bones. They are sellouts, they own so many sites it's ridiculous (Download.com, upload.com, etc.). Never was a fan.

    So, someone doesn't think the iPad is a good device and they're an idiot?

    Nice.

    Not everything Apple makes is a "good product" or "revolutionary". Look at Apple TV and the MacBook Air. Both products have not been updated or revised because Apple realized there was little future.

    Stop being a fanboi of Apple. They make good products, but not all of their products are good.

    I'm sure you meant to say, "How do uneducated people look?" or "What do uneducated people look like?"

    The only good thing about CNET is the 404 podcast.

    So they don't like it - why do you care? I'm not sure if they are or are not anti-Apple since I rarely go there. Maybe you should go to a site like Mac Daily News - that is the single most biased site I have ever seen in my life (for Apple of course). The idiots who host it actually write down every negative article and prediction made about Apple and add them to their calendar so they can bring them up in the future to mock people if they prove to be wrong. And the fanboys that hang out there eat it up. I much prefer this site since you get people who don't blindly worship all things Apple and show a little objectivity. I'm a big Apple fan, but they aren't perfect.

    While it's not my favorite site for reviews and yes I don't find Molly... whatever her name is to be very direct on her pro's and con's of an item. She clearly is not an Apple fan and can't seem to get thru a review without that showing. I don't care if they are fans or not, they shouldn't' let it overtake an entire review with their personal bias.

    I have followed Brian Tong on the Applebyte, although they do try a bit hard to be funny or cool. CNET is basically a good dose of the "dark side" vs all the Magic and Unicorn dust some sites are blowing in our face about Apple.

    Bottom line I watch a wide variety of reviews to hear all sides and make my own judgment. I don't lose any sleep over it, in the end it's my decision and if 10 people or 10 million buy an iPad it will all come down to if it does what you want it to. (granted if only 10 of us buy it... it will be short lived lol)
