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.

Theoretically, yes. Most human beings are quite capable of fully selfless acts. Not everyone runs across an opportunity to perform random kindness every day, but I'm sure most of us have found ourselves helping someone out of purely humanitarian feelings.

Only because I get an endorphin boost for doing so. Or because I'd hope someone would do the same if I landed myself in the same situation (kind of like a crude version of karma).

If I felt like crap every time I did someone a favour, I sure as hell wouldn't help people out again.
