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'.

I cringe every time I see a post with "Hands-On" in the title, because more often than not it means a bunch of photos of some dude's ugly hand manhandling a device and not providing enough valuable info about the product he is supposed to be evaluating.
