Sign number 34 that Consumer Reports isn’t on the ball

Tue, Mar 15, 2011


Consumer Reports writes:

One major difference in tech specs is that the iPad 2 has a new processor that’s supposed to make it far speedier than the original,” Fox reports. “While performing routine tasks such as Web browsing and e-mail in our tests, we didn’t notice any significant speed improvement.”

You know, it’s hard to take CR seriously given the way they handle/d the whole iPhone 4 bumper controversey and even their reporting on the Verizon iPhone 4. With differing opinions on a weekly basis, presumably to accumulate page views, Consumer Reports is quickly becoming a farce.

    CR has always had a weird anti-Apple bias in their reviews. Even their occasional praise seems grudging. Once I discovered it, I lost all confidence in them since I have to assume they must have other biases that I cannot so easily detect.

    They’re good for help in buying a car or washing machine, but not so good a guide in choosing a computer.
