Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

We did read the entire article. We just didn't read every link. As I said before, if every person read every link in every (for example) Wikipedia article they read, they would never leave their computers.

It's not like you would have had to spend three paragraphs explaining something, it would have taken but seven words: "... tweet about multi-tasking on the Surface tablet ..."

Would you expect to have to read every source cited in an academic paper just to understand the paper itself? No. If you wanted more detail and explanation and data on the paper, you would dig into the sources. This is no different when writing on a blog or a news site.

Your condescending attitude is getting a bit offensive.
