    People who campaign for or endorse or advertise a product are inextricably linked to it.

    That said, his comments are no worse than all the bloggers, forum trolls, usual suspects, and general media who advertise for competing platforms and who have been trashing RIM for years. I find the sudden sensitivity a bit disingenuous. If we're to complain against this let's complain about every single ad and two bit self appointed tech guru and armchair analyst who have been dumping on RIM for years.

    I, too, thought I heard him say he's never worked for RIM, and that he didn't work for RIM this time, either. They approached him to give him tip offs, and let him decide if he wanted to cover it... for no pay. Anyway, that's what i heard on the video while half asleep. My conjecture? Seems to me RIM gave him a chance for both parties to help each other get some exposure only.
