    I found that article to be a poor piece of writing and I think The Register lost a lot of credibility with it.

    credibility with who exactly? Apple can't sell them fast enough.

    TheRegister isn't exactly impartial when it comes to reporting news about Apple, more of a trashy tech website tbh.

    Wouldn't worry about it, Apple aren't going to lose any sleep over this, well not much anyway!

    yep, they're a bit like the sun of the tech web world! - it is a poor piece of journalism.

    The Register is not exactly a great source of news, they are going from bad to worse these days.

    When a company understates the problems of their product and overstates the issues with a competitor's products, we usually consider that a day at the office. But when Apple does it, it's "losing their credibility!"

    Apple isn't a neutral party here, and they're allowed to advocate for their products. If you disagree with the arguments they make, well that's why we have blogs, magazines, newspaper columns, twitter, etc. But don't tell me they're 'losing their credibility' because they have the nerve to portray their products in the best possible light.

    Poorly written in that it's critical of Apple/Steve Jobs. ;)

    Perhaps they are losing the PERCEPTION of credibility...

    And that can actually be a far more dangerous thing.

    More of an editorial than a news piece. You know how it will end from the beginning.

    Still, there are some good points, although going into more detail would be helpful.
