There's nothing old about it. This is the current model. If you want reviews to be published the week the devices come out, talk to Apple to put us in their reviewers list. Easy as pie. Not.

Yeah, I wish it was that easy. I personally would love writing reviews and trying out gadgets, see what makes them tick and so on, and I consider my linguistic output to be of high enough quality to be able to actually make readable, interesting reviews, but alas, I don't work for any high-grade gadget company or news outlet and as such I never get the chance to do anything.

There is no point in writing reviews for age-old devices and being unemployed I can't afford to buy brand new ones all the time so that also limits the whole thing.

That said it's great you guys still sometimes get free gadgets to review even with OSNews not being one of the heavy-weight gorillas in the field.
