Windows "Here's the official guidance, my sources say: Anything currently/formerly known as a 'Metro-Style application' (with or without a hyphen) will now be known officially as a 'Windows 8 application'. References to the 'Metro user interface' will now be replaced by "Windows 8 user interface." And instead of saying 'Metro design', the Softies and those adhering to their official guidelines will be using the words 'Windows 8 design'." Microsoft not being allowed to use the Metro name here is just as ridiculous as Apple trolling Samsung. All ridiculous exponents of the western world's IP fetish.

Well, in a way Thom asked correct questions.

However when Apple appears to be in the wrong, even when it's a suggested rumor with no merit but someone's imagination, he condemns Apple without any reserve, doubt or question. A few times already he got it wrong, but never did he publish a correction.

When it's Samsung, one of the good guys, everything is doubted and questioned. Even the translator is under suspicion.

We now know what happens after the verdict. If Apple wins the system is evil, the judge a fool and the jury a bunch bribed idiots. If Samsung wins the judge 'n' jury are sensible people.

Without getting in to the same tired arguments on another unrelated story -Thom has already drawn the battle lines and admitted that he can't be objective. It's sad, but until he appoints a new Apple/Samsung news reported with a neutral perspective, you'll get this slanted view. I state again - neither party is clean, they are both corrupt, neither deserve to win.....
