Let’s keep the iPad in proper perspective

Let's keep the iPad in proper perspective

By Carmi Levy, Betanews

Can you vehemently disagree with a colleague and still respect him? Despite the often passionate claims of our readers and commenters, who may have forgotten the era of Siskel & Ebert, I believe you can.

I’m as much a fan of a vigorous debate as anyone else. In my previous column last Thursday, Enough with the Apple bashing!, I apparently stepped on the baby toe of fellow Betanews contributor, Joe Wilcox. As scathing as his response — entitled Of course media bias favors Apple — was, I assure you I’ve got pretty thick skin.

Of course media bias favors Apple

Of course media bias favors Apple

By Joe Wilcox, Betanews

I have three questions for my Betanews writing colleague Carmi Levy: Do you own a Mac or iPhone? Do you invest in Apple? Did you preorder iPad or plan to buy one next week? For fair disclosure, I am writing this post on a 13-inch MacBook Pro (running Snow Leopard). I don’t own an iPhone (anymore) and I have never invested in Apple (I own no stock whatsoever; I’ll die poorer by my no-conflict-of-interest principles). I ask these questions because he writes: “To set the record straight, from where I sit, the media are not biased toward Apple.”
