Unfortunately, plenty of even so-called Apple bloggers are jumping at silly headlines. They not only garner page-hits, but are trotted out by MS shills as proof that Apple (or Leopard, or the iPhone, etc.) have major problems. Truthfully, it's hard not to be a bit disappointed in the Apple blogging community of late. They look at the entire well-oiled machine that is Apple, and piss and moan about a leaky washer here and there. At best, one could say they're grabbing easy headlines for hits; at the least, one could say they suck at prioritization and analyzing the big picture. Personally, I think it's a little of both. Maybe they're trying to play nice and not be branded as "Apple fanbois"? So they dredge up some pretty weak stuff (in the grand scheme of things) just to appear "unbiased". When the news out of Cupertino is overwhelmingly positive, in my opinion it's counter-productive to quibble over the small stuff.
Here's a follow-up to my earlier comment. This is a classic example of a hit-grabbing article: http://cultofmac.com/?p=1450Only a complete moron would think these are similar, especially the font. It's garbage like this that makes me disappointed in the Mac blogging community.
