If you're inferring that this is somehow not appropriate news for this site then I think you need to note that it is posted under "industry News" and probably to also review the posting guidelines which make it clear that this kind of article is entirely appropriate.

Man if this contributor put this much energy in finding real news *and more rounded for that matter* we would have a winner.

This persons news post history seems very biased(always involves MSFT never posts anything else.

Why don't you give it a rest with the personal attacks and focus your energy on contributing to the conversation/debate. Your comment has NOTHING to do with the posting other than that you mention Microsoft.

I can't wait until the comments are moderated.
