I agree with cogito. If any money changed hands here for the article it is imperative that it be disclosed as a part of the article (which reads like a 7th grade love letter IMHO).
As for the bumper so lovingly described, are you kidding me? On the back it most certainly does not look like it came with the phone. It's horrible. And it blocks cell reception? Apple sells a bumper, you know. If you need one buy the one Jony actually did help design.
