In the News Pretty scummy stuff by Samsung, this. The company apologised, but what it shows is just how warped tech reporting and blogging really is. Websites are dependent on review items, early access, and press invites, and we really have no idea just how much this influences reporting. Do you really think that reviewers and bloggers who are too critical will get invited to the next product unveil in Cupertino or will get early access to the next Galaxy device? If so, I have a palace to sell you.

Of course they calculated that it'd be good PR for them, that still doesn't change the fact that they paid a good sum of money to accommodate two people who had clearly shown they don't make any favors, ie. getting some good PR out of it doesn't make it not-commendable, especially when Nokia didn't even politely ask anything in return, let alone demand anything such.
