Wired News: 2005 Foot-in-Mouth Awards

December 27th, 2005 · 4 Comments

Is Wired on a roll or is it just a good meta filter? I ask this as I’ve linked to it a few times recently.

I’d love Wired to get seriously good again, it was once you know. Honest. Way back when. This was when 9600 modems wandered the earth in slow moving packs, softly grazing on BBS and gopher.

    The Motorola/Apple phone was hyped to hell, it wasn’t until people started using it that everyone realised it was crap. Apple even said as much, blaming Motorola. (Was it Motorola? I haven’t got tome to look up the manufacturer right now.)

    Er, I meant everything Apple does, not Google, although they’re overhyped too.

    I subscribed to Wired magazine last year and it had some notable articles. For one it had a front cover issue a few months ago about how the itunes phone was junk when everyone else in the media is in a crazed frenzy and over hyping everything google does. I liked that link thought that was funny.
