Apple "Colleagues at my former outlet, PC World magazine, have told me that Editor-in-Chief Harry McCracken quit abruptly today because the company's new CEO, Colin Crawford, tried to kill a story about Apple and Steve Jobs. The piece, a whimsical article titled 'Ten Things We Hate About Apple', was still in draft form when Crawford killed it. McCracken said no way and walked after Crawford refused to compromise. Apparently Crawford also told editors that product reviews in the magazine were too critical of vendors, especially ones who advertise in the magazine, and that they had to start being nicer to advertisers."

I quite like to see reviews done by the opposing sides ie OSX by the PC guys and Vista by the Mac guys, usually they are a bit more honest or even a little brutal since most folks do have to deal with multiple OSes. This also cancels out advertiser interest since I don't suppose Apple spends much in PC mags and MS in Mac mags.
