Apple Apple doesn't have a particularly healthy relationship with the press; it has sued websites for publishing information it didn't like, and has tried to keep information under wraps that a journalist tried to uncover via the Freedom of Information Act. Now, however, it has tried to prevent The Times from publishing an article about Steve Jobs.

Yeah just for the record: Thom is NOT David.

David bombastically announced to "have fun" with showing Apple's dark side, only to be hardly ever heard of since.

Thom usually writes the news, and as far as I'm concerned, he still intends to remain objective. However I must say that haus's excellent overview actually has started me reconsidering this viewpoint.

Edit: in the light of the below comments, I do think at times it is excusable to let the balance topple over toward either the negative or positive valence side, in order to put the overall picture back into balance.

Or (translation): most of us thought pretty positively about Apple. What OS News plainly does, is point out that we should change this view in favor of us knowing that Apple is "both good and bad". That said, we got the message. Now let's re-establish a balance & get some positive news out there again.
