    Everyone seems overly concerned about the button on the top of the phone being the power button. That clearly indicates they don't know what is about to drop - no need for the button if it is there anyways, if you can wake with a gesture

    Keep in mind both Dev devices have a physical button on top that can also put the phone into a screen lock, turn off the device when held, and bring up the restart/lock menu...

    That's kinda harsh. Considering that The Verge is one of the more reliable mobile-tech news sites (and one of the few worth reading), completely non-biased, and actually sets a high standard in their articles.

    And that isn't saying much is it. Have you ever watched their podcasts, on the verge? Subject matter good but ability is horrible. And why is it they never stop smiling? Its a carnival for sure - a puppet carnival.

    I like reading The Verge from time to time. Nothing wrong with them or what they report on. What's harsh is your assuming that they must be socially awkward geeks who "got stuffed into lockers," simply because you don't like the way they report.

    On the same token, I must be able to assume that you're an illiterate, unschooled bully simply by your lack of knowledge in basic punctuation and spelling, and your blatant disregard for common courtesy, right?

    Sounds about as ridiculous.

    Your browser must display an entirely different version of The Verge than mine does. They rarely bash anybody, and are actually quick to point out the shortcomings of iOS and Android when it deserves merit. You may not always like what they have to say, but their statements are not based on bias. They're probably the only mobile tech reporting site that makes it a point not to fall prey to the petty platform wars.

    I'm sure a short search on The Verge can probably yield the occasional article that may not be friendly to BB, but you'll also find much more positive BB articles. Many many more positive articles than you'll find on any other mobile tech site (aside from BB dedicated sites anyway).

    you may be right if i do a search but from what i've seen from their podcasts i'd prefer not to as i do not respect the reporters on that site

    also before this thread gets locked for goign way off topic i'm going to remove my posts

    Reliable, completely non-biased, and sets a high standard.......Hahaha good one.

    Really, they could have just ignored the image altogether since "this isn't all that exciting". But nope, just have to be a Debbie Downer.

    idk it seemed like a good article to me and I rarely think what they produce is good. Some people just don't want to visit their site, wasn't sure if that applied to you or not.

    yeah thats my point. Nowhere in the article did it mention that NY had 400 years to prepare for the storm, which based on how they report on tech, they never fail to miss a dig even if its remote.

    TheVerge hosts are a bunch of ******-rs and they don't like anything other than a Apple or Google or some fancy startup product. Egoistic hypocrites I would call them at best and they have their minds made up and can't imagine anybody innovating other than Apple or Google..Blackberry is dead to them and they carry a similar negative bias towards MSFT. Although not all of them on the verge team show that bias but most of them who has a stake in it.

    How can you have possibly found the article to be a downer? Seriously... All the article did was show the image. What did they do? They "helped promote" the image.. And what do you devil's advocates do? You point out evil where it doesn't exist.

    The article promoted BB more so than anything else. Seriously... WTF! Are you so conditioned in the media that you automatically assume the worst?

    I've been reading The Verge on and off since they split off from Engadget. They're biased, in the sense that they don't really cover RIM and Blackberry. Their staff consists of former Engadget writers, who have been accused of iOS fanboism and that's probably not changed much. iOS products usually get top honors, though Android has been catching up due to its popularity (and thus garners advertising clicks). Lately, they've been more fair to RIM/Blackberry.
