"A whole week to write a review of an OS that you use for months or a tutorial for something you know well, or an interview, I believe it is more than enough. "Real" journalists at news.com or cnn.com have only a few hours to both research and write stuff down."

Well, I'm not so sure about that. "Real" journalists do this for a living; it's their 9 to 5. Most folks who write these articles are likely doing so in their spare time. Someone who writes for a living will also likely be able to complete an article faster simply because that is what they are used to: writing articles. Usually, the more you do something, the faster (and better) you get at it. I was actually intrigued myself, but once I saw the time constraint...

Maybe sometime I will anyway.
