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."

Apparently, PC World is just a marketing machine for advertisers who bought space there. Don't bother about the articles anymore. They're more marketing spin than factual journalism.

Thank God for the internet. Magazines don't have the clout and influence they used to have back then.
