Default Lame Gizmodo Poll about HD DVD players

I checked out Gizmodo today and they had a garbage poll about what users will do with existing HD DVD players (not very charitable choices.) I used to enjoy reading the site but that poll made me decide to stop reading their stories.

Not that I'm Shakespeare or anything, but this is a copy of the email I sent their editor. I wanted them to know they had one less reader, not that they apparently care.


For about a year, I pulled for y'all over Engadget. Y'all seemed like the scrappy, energetic underdog. But recently, y'all have jumped on the bash HDDVD bandwagon. Maybe that got me looking critically at you guys... Now I see that most of your stories are wholly derivative and parroted ideas from Engadget (or maybe y'all both are lazy and can't come up with original work). Anyway, as much as I enjoy the tech news scene, I'm done with you guys.

Your poll about what to do with your HDDVD is just lazy Blu junk. I don't think I'll miss the lame stories about moderately updated cell phones or flash drives.

You think HD DVD is on a downward spiral? Take a look in the mirror. Have fun with childish pranks at lesser conventions in the future.
