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'.

Not to mention the ever worsening abuse of the word "review". The page gets the clicks and impressions, that's it, but how people have the cheek to paste a marketing blurb and call it a review, is beyond me.
