Most likely he told an unpopular truth.

He wasn't off-topic, trolling or inaccurate, yet one of these options was chosen when a couple of readers voted him down.

Well, I guess you could call his comment "inaccurate". He implies that you would interpret Steve Jobs quote differently after wathching the whole video but I don't see why you would do that. Nor why cutting the video down to 40s would be a huge error.

(Not that I like the mod system, it's abused way too much.)

Steve Jobs was asked how he can know (and be sure!) what is right direction for IT industry.

he replay, that you need to expose yourself to all greatest accomplishments that people already done before, and if you take/expose to these best things/ideas (not only IT related!!), you can be sure that you are in right direction in what you are doing (shaping IT industry back than)!


in context: you should not take 7-years-old CP/M and re-sell it to IBM in 1981. it is a crap.
if you done that, than: your thinking is a crap, your business strategy is crap, your product are crap...

The Atari bloke's native language isn't English so he doesn't always seem to make him self clear and probably misunderstands things sometimes, but he means well.

Regarding the comment system:
It would be nice if everybody could see the scores applied.

I don't think posts with negative scores should be "hidden", because people will still want to see what was so bad about it. I even tend to upvote them just because they're negative.

It's not uncommon to see silly, worthless or even plain inaccurate comments to be voted up and accurate ones voted down.

Why not keep it simple and offer two choices: I agree and I don't agree. And then display both scores. So a comment can have 4 agrees and 3 disagrees. Right now such a person would have a score of 1, which leads to believe nobody voted.

Why be able to mark stuff as spam? I rarely see any. OSNews staff can just remove them when they spot them. Also I don't see why you need to choose a reason to vote someone up if no one can see that reason.
