Google So, somewhere in the middle of the night (at least for me) Samsung and Google held a joint event, in which they announced both the new Nexus phone, the Galaxy Nexus, and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. While the Galaxy Nexus is a pretty impressive phone, what we got to see from Ice Cream Sandwich surely didn't drop too many jaws.

In a line, stop being so biased in your articles every time you change your mind. You're takings jabs at people like Gruber but at least they don't portray themselves as being objective; what you're doing is worse.


When have I ever painted myself as objective? Seriously dude, when?

My opinion changes - of course it does. That's because unlike most other bloggers, I have no undying eternal devotion to any one company, product, or technology. I think Microsoft is being a dick with their extortion campaign, but I'm open about the fact that WP7 = fcuking awesome. I think Apple is a despicable company and that iOS isn't as holy and good as everyone makes it out be, but at the same time, I'm a very happy and satisfied iPad 2 owner. I dislike Google's withholding of Honeycomb source code and their total inability to get device makers to put updates out there, but at the same time, I bought a Galaxy SII last week and I'm loving it, Android warts and all.

This kind of openness and honesty about the things I like and don't like, without any "it is from Xyz and thus good/bad" is something you may not be familiar with, and thus, it may come across as strange. However, accusing *me* of black/white thinking is so utterly idiotic, I'm not sure if trolling or just really new here.

Look, I may flip-flop about when it comes to my dislikes and likes, but that's because I'm a human being, and not dependant on getting free stuff from companies that make the products I'm supposed to write about. I buy this shit with my own money, and as such, you'll see entirely different outcomes than with other large sites like Engadget that rely on early access gifts.
