Also, that test hasn't been posted yet either. The posted test article wasn't about the Droid. Once posted, at least there will be sites that pick it up. I bet a lot of those sites wouldn't pick up this particular story.
This is one of the best Apple related discussion forums, but you subtly acknowledge that my point to the other guy is correct.
You're going to have to go to non-Apple sites to find coverage that isn't generally slanted towards Apple products being the top of the heap, and that's because they generally are, but in the cellphone world, after 30 months or so of being the top of the heap, Apple's product is now number 2 at best, and arguably number 3 or lower. HTC, at the least, and perhaps others, including Motorola, have already released and also shown at the mobile conference in Spain, phones that far surpass the currently released and announced iPhone, regardless of any flawed testing done by a disgruntled Nexus One owner who tested one application only to determine that the overall product was inferior.
iPhone 4 is sure to wow, but sadly, in light of the totally-gone-off-the-deep-end censorship of apps Apple's now taken with the banning of bikini apps (and others), Apple's phone solution isn't likely to get my attention again unless it's years ahead of the competition hardware-wise and they lighten up on the App Store rejections/bans. We would never put up with this on our Macs, why would we put up with it on our phones? But I digress and have gone a bit off topic there.
EDIT: If Apple is actually going to allow more content in the store with this new "explicit" category, as indicated in this article
, I may have to rethink my position on them.
At any rate, doesn't Apple seem more and more like the wrong side of the famous 1984 commercial these days with the iPhone...?
