Reviews Should Advise

Matt “Legend” Gemmell, writing in Opinions in Journalism summarizes and continues recent internet discussions on how Tech Journalism has become too bland, impartial and hedged:

...as readers, we’re often looking for insight to help with a buying decision, rather than raw information.

As Ben Brooks sees it in Family Apple (via Hugh Sissling):

More surprising is that no one asked me which phone or computer to get — they just wanted to know which iPad to get and if they should wait for the next iPad.

Not one product review I have seen has been honest enough to say that the reader should stop wasting their time reading this \ review and just get an iPad.

If our family members know, so should the press.
