    Anyone noticed it's suddenly turned into a bit of a Microsoft-PC borezone ?

    engadget is all about gadgets of all kinds. They cover plenty of Apple products, even so much so that users in their comments have been complaining!

    They're back to more varied coverage now that the wall-to-wall iPhone coverage has died away, but the Apple-addled blogoidiotsphere attitude is never far away.

    Engadget is not Microsoftian by any means. If anything, being composed apparently mainly of 'bottom-up journalists' - if 'journalists' can be used in their case - in terms of talent and having much in common with you guys, they're more of a seething hotbed of Apple Fanboys.

    Take this for a start.

    "What are you trying to say, Microsoft? That people heard really bad things from their friends and co-workers, but a slick 10 minute sales presentation showed them the light?"

    To the author I'd say "It's a marketing pitch, moron, and quite an effective one at that - and a lot less grounded in outright lies than anything from Apple."

    Mmh, we'll see. My prediction is that it'll be a quarter of the site it was in 6 months time. I'm certain some kind of conscious policy change has occurred.
