TUAW goes full-on AOL

Wow, the new TUAW is awful. The comment system is the AOL/AIM/FB/Twitter/etc. based system instead of having their own. I guess they wanted to fully submit to their AOL overlords? I'm sure some AOL exec got sold on the "crowdsourced" look. Meh....



I hope AI doesn't get the same idea.

    This is a vBulletin forum. If you think they're comparable in any way, you have a lot to learn.



    TUAW and AppleInsider don't have anything in common. They're a blog. We're a forum. vBulletin's system, while fairly old, is leagues better than any blog comment system out there.

    I got a bit sick of TUAW a while back. Too much fluff about this or that app, inane simple questions for "Ask Aunt TUAW" and frivolous news about cases, apps and more apps. Did I mention they write about too much apps?
