    Truth and opinion pieces aren't synonymous. Even good reporting tends to take on a slant, but negative press today is out of control, with these types of blogs dispensing zero useful information (no background, no detail, no balance, no forward looking answers/speculation) and this Gizmodo post is nothing more than another hit piece...these 'people' (no way will I ever call them journalists!) have an agenda, plain and simple. Look at what was done to Apple iPad wrt negative press, same thing being done to Google: highlight only the negatives, regurgitate ad nauseum, foment a backlash, keeping eyes/clicks all along the way. It reminds me of some pseudo-celebs who think negative press is actually positive press, because at least it is SOME press. Folks need to be more selective about their sources of genuine information.

    Ask the ones spreading the FUD...it effects many phones, even the iPhones of every generation, on ATT, no less. I'm happy to have a sleek phone with no external antenna sticking out the top..it's so 20th century!

    I thought this map was kind of cool to check out coverage from different providers. It's shown on cnet and you can put in your neighborhood and look at the data they've gathered, it might or might not be helpful for people complaining about signal strength (given obviously if you're in a metal box the results will obviously be different)

    Right on queue...a discussion of their attention-whoreness in an actual written, researched and seriously presented article:

    Because it is the first "Google Phone". If they wrote the same article about the myTouch, no one would care. Just like when the iPhone came out and there were numerous AT&T issues, T-mobile users realized how unstable 3G was using the Nexus One. T-mobile doesn't have near the number of users AT&T does so they have never dealt with the major stress on their network like AT&T has.
