    forum members dont `hate` BGR for writing negative articles on RIM, they hate them for ONLY writing negative articles and leaving the majority of the good stuff on the cutting room floor. or in real terms, biased reporting.

    I know u and Geller are buddies I more or less meant most people on the forums. I don't hate them though, I think they tend to publish a lot of stuff without verification but they must have a ridiculous amount of contacts within the industry to get all the info that they have

    It was a choice between a playbook or a nook color and a new 9mm pistol my love for BlackBerry can only go so far.

    I thought BGR was the ONLY one that didn't ONLY write bad things.

    Whatever it is its probably the "hand on the bible" truth because that's all they publish is the "truth". And I don't want to hear "all they want is site visits" that's not why they do what they do. BGR is a candle that shines bright in a dark room of lies to iluminate "truth".

    I do not hate BGR. RIM management needs a kick in the arse to get going and release some new devices. If the negative stories from BGR spur RIM into action that can only be a good thing.

    The end does not justify the means.
    Geller needs to learn the meaning of journalistic integrity.

    The fact that RIM responded to his stories (even if it was a "canned" statement) and did not deny them or state that they were untrue leads me to believe that what he published was true.

    I don't agree.
    I think keeping silent and hiding, would appear more guilty and lend credence to the letters than responding to them did.
    Anonymous "open letters" by nature cannot be denied or proven untrue.

    I have a very reliable source (I can't name him because he works for BGR) that tells me Geller made up those letters. Prove me wrong.

    I personally feel BGR has been a bit too harsh...

    Let's face it: Almost ALL smartphone makers are having problems. The only real exception is Apple. RIM, LG, Nokia etc are all having problems.

    RIM will get through...

    Hopefully BGR won't help stock prices plunge again ;-)
    (I'm hoping for a bit of a stock surge after today's meeting)

    I'm still banking on another drop,

    When they finally announce the new phone line up and people start hearing the name Blackberry + phones again in the public I expect to see them come up.

    I disagree. I honestly don't think BGR's stories on RIM are biased. Yes I agree that they don't line up with most BlackBerry loyalist's views. However they doesn't mean they're biased. BG wrote a story over a year ago about where RIM was/is in the market, the fact they were headed down, and what they needed to do to turn things around.
    Sure they're "hard" on RIM but that doesn't mean biased.

    My turn to disagree

    Though I wouldn't go out as far as some to say BGR fabricates articles.
    Their Bias is apparent in the thread titles usually chosen, an Article that can be spun in a negative way ALWAYS will be, though it is the sensationalism of this that brings many readers to the site. So I can understand his/their doing so.

    BGR is deservingly hard on RIM, since RIM has needed a good kick in the teeth for 18 months. But saying their isn't a bias against positive news is a bit rosey glassed IMnsHO
