I'll be glad when Molly is back. She tends to be a little more even handed with these issues.
I love Apple products and the innovation and pure sexiness that Apple has always delivered to the market. That said, I'm sensing a bit of an appologist approach to stories where Apple is concerned. If the story concerns a Windows security hole, another Sony PR problem or something of the sort then the Buzz team is all over them. But when it is an Apple issue the trend seems to be to minimize it or make excuses. Recent stories concerning Leopard's release date being pushed out, iPhone battery questions and MACBook battery problems seem to be laughed off.
Sexy and innovative as their products are, it's time to apply the same standards to Apple product issues as you do so well with Microsoft, Sony, Dell, HP . . . .(i.e. everybody but Apple).
Could it be that this is all part of an ingenious plot to drive Molly to the boiling point so that when she returns she hits the podcast like a sunami of rightious indignation? I hope so.
