Of course haters are gonna nitpick on the few inaccuracies that may happen here and there, but the big picture is that Daniel's foresight on the products and companies he writes about are consistently spot on.
I used to follow Roughly Drafted and generally enjoyed DED's articles -- research and analysis.
Especially since many of DED's writings confirmed my own experiences and supported my opinions.
After a while, I noticed some disturbing patterns:
-- Apple could do no wrong, and their adversaries/competitors could do no right
-- DED would report facts supporting his opinions, and ignore facts challenging them
-- DED inserts himself (his opinions) into the article, usually overpowering the topic
-- DED often (usually) quotes other articles written by himself to build the impression that there is a concensus of supporting material
-- when confronted, DED would often make a vicious attack on the poster
-- he seems to have accumulated real or imagined slights or slurs from others and uses every opportunity to attempt to redress them
After awhile his articles become a predictable litany of every point he has ever asserted, whether true or false (being right isn't good enough).
The closest thing that comes to mind for the litany, is Hannity on the TV.
