C/Net News.com is at it again. Their blog link censure story is a good example of making mountain out of the mole hill. What really ticked me off is this piece about Virgin Electronics shutting down. They credit Engadget for breaking the story, when clearly, it was posted here on Monday, and was a scoop of ours. Engadget linked to us, and then posted an update today. They have made a habit of doing this time and again. Thankfully, they are crediting blogs for breaking stories, except sometime they are not getting their facts right.

  1. I’d get used to it my friend.

    If I had five dollars for every-time I’ve had a broken story lifted without credit, I’d be sipping some freaky looking drink on my coastal patio.
