Apple Yesterday (well, CET in any case), Apple posted its financial results for the second quarter of the 2008 fiscal year (which ended 29 March). While sales of Macintosh laptops and desktops soared to ever greater heights, and while sales of the iPod consolidated itself, the news is not so good for the iPhone. And the dodo will have an Apple TV to play with, soon.

Apple said nothing, did not mention or give figures for sales of the AppleTV. So instead of just reporting that fact, you stepped across the line from reporting to commentary to infer that this means the AppleTV is doomed, not selling well, and will "soon join the dodo bird". Quite a stretch and completely contrary to Journalism 101. Unfortunately, commentary is about all you get these days in the guise of "news". "OS news" would imply that I would read this site regularly to find out what's going on in the world of OS's. There might be some commentary once in a while, and that's fine, just as long as there is a clear label that those articles are an OPINION, not news.
