I’ve managed to be banned by The Verge. Discovered this when trying to comment on their review of Apple’s Homepod…which would’ve been “Predictable, short-sighted, useless critique.”
Occasionally useful in the past, they offer little in terms of info about tech (or life, death, etc.). They were in my Apple News feed as a choice I tried when starting up with Apple News.
My tradition when I walkaway from a “source” – or BITD, a customer – is to wish them well. A few times, I said nothing. This is one of those. Let the market rule!
BTW, for a useful review, go read Om Malik’s opinion of the Homepod.
