PC Mag loves, hates Apple
Following serious questions about the magazine's editorial integrity, PC World has posted the two -- now infamous -- "love" and "hate" articles about Apple. Last week, the magazine's editor-in-chief abruptly quit when the company's CEO (Colin Crawford) insisted editorial and reviews be toned down for the company's advertisers. The articles include some criticisms about Apple, including the Cupertino-based company's quest to runaround First Amendment protections afforded to journalists, the company's highly "secretive" product launch strategies, its arrogance after shipping iPods with a Windows worm, the nearly ubiquitous "iAnything" nomenclature, etc. Sublimed product design, the Mac OS, reliability, Apple's progressive DRM-free music stand, Windows on Mac, are among the 10 things PC world loves about Apple.
