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."

I thought you were sarcastic for a moment there. Tom's Hardware is not to be included on your list of independent reporters with integrity. They figuratively sold out years ago, and have recently sold out literally ;)


Bummer, you're right, I haven't been there in a long time (maybe too long!). Basically, every day I make the rounds of OSNews, Slashdot (I know, not a lot of reality there!) and LinuxToday. I just subscribed to LinuxJournal, but haven't gotten my first issue yet. I also read Dr. Dobbs (I'm a software developer). Too bad about TOM's. Who else do y'all recommend?
