Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

Where is the clear change of topic or any indication that the entire paragraph, save last line, is unrelated to the title? None. Doesn't exist. There's are no links, there is no other contextual information. Therefore it is misleading, end of story.

You may want to send an email to Adam or David about that. It may be the way the OSNews code formats the RSS or it could be your reader, and it might behoove you to find out for sure. I'm leaning towards OSNews code myself, since I vaguely remember seeing links but not being able to click on them back when I used RSS readers. I certainly don't think it is intentionally misleading as you suggest; that would be highly counterproductive to the site's existence, and quite silly to boot.
