Abdel Ibrahim on Twitter thinks so. I kind of agree and I think this is where Apple is missing Katie Cotton in the PR department. Mostly tech reviews, very few from women. Hardly any of the reviews talked about the quality of materials used (Gruber's did but I'm not sure he counts). And the review that is getting the most attention (from The Verge) is actually a pretty crappy review (even if you agree there are some legitimate criticisms/shortcomings with the device). Nilay Patel has been negative on this device since day one. Why in the world is he part of day one reviews? At least pick people that will go into it with an open mind. And that doesn't mean all reviews will be only positive. Gruber's first take was quite balanced. I'd love to know who at Apple decided which publications to send review units to.
