Apple "Colleagues at my former outlet, PC World magazine, have told me that Editor-in-Chief Harry McCracken quit abruptly today because the company's new CEO, Colin Crawford, tried to kill a story about Apple and Steve Jobs. The piece, a whimsical article titled 'Ten Things We Hate About Apple', was still in draft form when Crawford killed it. McCracken said no way and walked after Crawford refused to compromise. Apparently Crawford also told editors that product reviews in the magazine were too critical of vendors, especially ones who advertise in the magazine, and that they had to start being nicer to advertisers."

As said before I cannot recall last time I read one of these magazines and there was actually a critic of something...of anything... even the coffee mug holder in place of your CD-drive got good reviews ;)

Almost funny to realize how dependent of the web we have become to find reviews that even if not unbiased at least allow you to rapidly compare different point of view.

Actually now that I think of it, one magazine (forgot which) has 2 editorials one "I like" one "I don't like" about same device/software.... still hope i guess.
