    If any of you watch Pocketnow Daily, the past week and a half with BlackBerry/Android news has created some pretty biased commentary from the host Jaime Rivera.

    Specifically this episode last week where he says "BlackBerry 10 is terrible" (bottom of this post) with no examples or explanations to back his claim, and today's episode (in post # 2 because CB doesn't like 2 videos in one post) where he says "And for all 3 of you excited for this BlackBerry...don't raise your hands please..."

    He's been chasing the spec dragon for far too long and sucking on the Droid's D. I can guarantee you he hasn't used a BlackBerry device for longer than 3 days. Funny how pervasive bashing BlackBerry is in tech media.

    I really hope BlackBerry makes a comeback.

    He's allowed to dislike whatever he wants to dislike. Shouldn't affect one who likes BB10.

    That's his opinion. BB10 is great for me. If blackberry moves to android platform, I would probably have to use IOS device. I am currently using passport & iphone 6 plus.

    I certainly don't give a ****, but nonetheless, it just goes to show how media outlets spread FUD.

    The show does have a massive following. I just wish they'd hold themselves to higher standards. Critique something with valid points, don't just spout BS; especially if you're putting yourself out there as a meaningful source of tech news.

    I will have to go back to my iPhone 6 if that happens. Can't stand Android.

    I mean... it is what it is. They had already made up their mind from the get go. But I get where you're going with this. He didn't say anything to back up why it sucks.
    It's like me saying sushi sucks even though I only tried it twice.

    Looking up this man Rivera's bio on his site...he looks like a jack of all trades to me.

    The old saying goes: a jack of all trades and a master of none. I would not give the review of a person like this Rivera any weight at all.

    A review from a properly qualified and experienced individual, sure. Guys like this Rivera, absolutely not. He reminds me of career politicians. They play the role of Finance Minister, Defense Minister or Environmental Minister but don't actually have any work experience in the fields their ministry represents.

    This is why as a general rule, I don't really pay too much attention to "professional" reviewers or bloggers, most of them have no relevant experience in the field they are writing about. If I want opinions of equipment and their performance, I'll speak to people who are experienced with the products or services and get their opinions directly.

    I find these days that too many people take the opinions of bloggers as Gospel, rather than do their own legwork and make an educated decision.

    Just like.... "Dude, omg, this ____ stinks. Smell it." You're gonna smell it even though you know it's bad, aren't you Bla1ze.

    It's funny when you think about stuff you usually don't think about.
    Tech blogging has went mainstream these days. That's why a blogger has become both a tech reviewer and an entertainer. He has to follow trends and make jokes. Bash BlackBerry and make jokes about the bending iPhone. It's not company specific, but whoever falls gets kicked instantly, and BlackBerry has been down for too long.
