Opera Software Last week we had some contradicting reports regarding Opera Software and its Opera Mini web browser. The New York Times' Bits weblog and Daring Fireball's John Gruber contradicted one another concerning a possible iPhone version of Opera Mini - or more specifically, about whether or not Opera had actually submitted Opera Mini to Apple. The Bits weblog has now settled the issue.

That mess is the kind of crap that can damage reputations. He said she said he said. People should exercise a little more care, dig a little deeper before posting articles.

to make matters worse, people instantly discredited Gruber's research and accused him of being a troll too.

i guess we know who the real trolls are.

Well it does tell us that Gruber did not go back to the source or the reporter. This does not make him a troll but does mean he did not do much in the way of research.

There is a difference between being a troll and a blogger who looks for the side of the story he wants to report on.
