  1. You know… I’m no friend of Apple.  But, c’mon!  This couldn’t have been written more like Microsoft marketing language if it had been authored by its ad agency or marketing department…

    …which, no doubt, commissioned the study.  Surprise, surprise who came-out on top.

    I can go into any mall and observe which devices all the kids are carrying around, and such anecdotal evidence would, I’ll bet, fly in the face of this study.Sheesh.You know, is it asking too much that the authors, here, not simply copy-and-paste from press releases?  Is it asking too much that they behave like actual journalists, and treat the press release as merely one side of the story… a place to merely begin; and then they go out and get another side of the story… another quote?  Maybe research to find out if Microsoft commissioned Buzz to do that study?Hmm?  Is that asking too much?  Even if you’ve not been to journalism school, would it be wrong to suggest that maybe you at least take such as one of the non-college-credit, but nevertheless quite credible journalism couses offered by distance learning from any of a number of providers in the UK?  Or maybe take a few free online courses from one of the non-profit journalism foundations in the US?  Or maybe just read a journalism book?  Is that asking too much of people who fancy themselves journalists, and ask of us that they not only read, but actually take seriously their work?Hmm?  Is that asking too  much!  Be a professional!  Don’t fall for everything that arrives in your inbox from the self-interested and willing-to-lie.[shakes head in disbelief]  See?  This is what happens when critical thinking skills are not taught, first and foremost, in high school and college.Oy.
