Instead, I’ll link to Marco Arment’s tweet ripping Consumer Reports for — wait for it — recommending the new iPad as the top tablet on the market.
Yes, just a couple weeks after “WarmGate” failed to light a fire under consumers, Consumer Reports has decided it will probably look better if they recommend what will become the best-selling tablet of all time. As we saw with the iPhone 4, it doesn’t really matter what they say anymore.
I’m going to give myself a large pat on the back for this one following their initial report on March 20:
We will absolutely have a follow-up story from them tomorrow. And probably another one the next day. Then one contradicting what was previous said (which they’ve already done, of course).
The cycle is complete.
