Microsoft I'm very thankful for Danny Sullivan writing this article, because it touches upon a subject I've increasingly been frustrated with: the inflation of the term 'hands-on'. Hands-on used to mean that a journalist, blogger, or reviewer got to properly use a device to get some sort of first impression, usually guided by some words from the manufacturer. These days, however, it seems as if even merely getting a glance at a device is regarded as a 'hands-on'.

for this kind of hype practice, which for me are the same as the craze for unboxing video. Sure I appreciate the "honest" opinion of invited journalists, but as I am a geek with particular needs the experience of a journalist is always different from mine.
