he Reuters shill has its own share of mistakes and ironically it's
called "factbook".

FACTBOX - Microsoft's legal troubles in EU, U.S., Asia

Since when does Microsoft control 95% of the servers? Stupid journalism or just
shilling? Here's the Ou shill:

Phony choices in the net neutrality debate

| Don let the FUD-meisters convince you otherwise. Not in 1,000 words or 1
| million. The question is whether you will run the Internet, or whether AT&T
| will.

Long list of Vista bugs that will keep me off Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| After a grueling week of intense Vista RTM testing, I still can't
| get Vista stable on my primary computer yet even though I've swapped
| out all the bad memory. This same PC has worked with and continues
| to work with Windows XP just fine. Even with the good memory in the
| computer, it locks up every hour or two and forces me to hard shut
| the system to reboot. Apparently I'm not the only one with stability
| issues since reader DAC-Tech who's a Systems Engineer with a big
| company was having issues with his brand new ASUS based motherboard.

| Um. Dude. Talk about world class hypocrisy.

Microsoft pays star writers to recite slogan

Malik, Arrington and Battelle: X-22, come in [to Microsoft]

,----[ Quote ]
| What would possess a collection of online publishers and venture capitalists
| to pimp a Microsoft advertising slogan?
|
| Valleywag today reported about a site tied to a Microsoft ad campaign
| where the likes of Michael Arrington, Om Malik and others seemingly
| lend their support to the "people-ready" catchphrase.
|
| I sent e-mails both to Arrington and Malik and--surprise,
| surprise--heard nothing back. (Obviously, they are not yet
| sufficiently "Coop-ready.") Microsoft was still checking for me into
| whether money exchanged hands. But even if not a single shekel exchanged
| hands, I must wonder about the absence of common sense. Why would
| ostensibly independent voices come across as Microsoft shills? If
| they were hoping for a free dinner with Bill Gates, there are
| smarter ways to go about it.
