Randall Stross attacks the iPhone in the NYT using shills

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in 2007, the New York Times first instated 
| a ban on shills like Rob Enderle, who purport 
| to be independent analysts while actually 
| serving as paid mouthpieces for the firms they 
| represent. In the words of Times spokeswoman 
| Abbe Serphos, this supposedly included any 
| âanalysts who have an obvious business 
| relationship with a company.â
| Itâs no secret that Enderle has been paid by 
| both Microsoft and Dell to say bad things about 
| Apple. It eventually became embarrassing for 
| the Times to realize its sloppy journalists 
| were stooping to quote him as a shortcut to 
| performing actual investigative research, hence 
| the ban.

Well this is what happens when you set expectation high then pull features out.
Few people know that Jaguar should have been Panther as a result Apple was
praised for Jaguar and Panther while Microsoft is already being lambasted for
crippled Vista.


I get to do a lot of columns these days, could guarantee each of these titles
not only would get published they would make the front page or pull amazing


One thing has changed since '85 we have blogs now.


The press was taken through the product and every time a feature is dropped the
calls come in with the take that Vista is just smoke and mirrors now, I can
turn some of these but there are limitations to what I can do.
