The Payola Didn’t Arrive on Time

| It must be that, because the top of the page has tips for switching to Mac on 
| one side, and a story from John Dvorak about the time coming to download 
| Ubuntu.  
| Now I have seen Dvorak, in print, long enough to know he has never been in on 
| the hit-you-in-the-face Microsoft slant of the rest of the magazine, but when 
| his article appears with one about a Mac switch concurrently, something is 
| definitely changing. Note I didn’t say wrong, because it should have been 
| this way for quite some time.    
| Perhaps the people are tired of the e-mail they keep getting about the bias. 
| Perhaps the changes are due to inner discord, because I’ve heard things are 
| not happy-happy-joy-joy at Ziff-Davis and its various entities. Whatever it 
| is, I’m glad to see it, because the time is over that Microsoft puts out 
| something and the masses accept it blindly, as though it had been delivered 
| on stone tablets.     


Microsoft has its Ziff-Davis clowns also discredit Linux intentionally and it
bribes bloggers for Vista 7 raves.


PC Mag May Boycott Edelman PR

| Transparency is a word that's been kicked around a lot lately. But
| too much transparency is what got Edelman PR pro and blogebrity
| Steve Rubel kicked around this week, instead. An early Friday
| 13th comment about PC Magazine is fueling a potential boycott,
| as well as fulfilling what the PR world had feared about blogging.


Getting a Vaio [with Vista, from Microsoft]

| Microsoft Belgium rang me yesterday (I don?t think they realised it 
| was a public holiday here!).
| [...]
| The phone call yesterday was to confirm my address - the laptop (a
| Sony Vaio - dunno which model or spec yet) is en route with Vista
| Ultimate and Office Ultimate pre-installed.


Bribing Bloggers

| It's a bribe. Period. You say nice things about us, you get nice
| things from us. Heck, just say neutral things about us-we'll give
| you a killer new laptop and we know that you'll be inclined to say
| better things about us.


Microsoft Sent A Free Laptop With Windows Vista

| I'm not sure how I was selected to be one of the people receiving this
| (I'm assuming there are others, but I haven't come across any yet).
| It could be that they are reaching out to bloggers who are Mac users
| (I switched to a Mac back when OS X came out) or it might just be that
| people I know who work for Microsoft or other influential bloggers
| recommended me
