vicdavery,

re: but isn't this entire article just a big ad?

It's an "article" on devlopers.googleblog.com introducing a new technology. Of course it reads like an advert, and why shouldn't it?
It's not pretending to be from an independent source.


It's hard to describe exactly why it bothers me. Thom has posted plenty of technology articles about new products & releases, etc, but the marketing drivel in this one seems way too excessive to ignore. I think I'm just wary of sales-pitches and prefer articles be more informative & descriptive (which they usually are). In my opinion the quality of articles would drop if this were to become a normal thing.
