Engadgets Dell Streak 7 review: major FUBAR, as usuall…

Yes, it has happened again. Engadget has bashed yet another product for the simple reason that it is in the same segment as some Apple product.

The review itself, in which Streak is given 4/10, is a standard Engadget bashing-review: point out some goods, point out some bads, then give the gadget an unreasonably low score and quickly move on. If a commenter questions the score, delete his posts and ban his account.

By now, everyone knows that Engadget is the laughingstock of the gadget blogs.

    Applegadget’s rating system is totally flawed. They will nitpick the hell out of Apple-rival devices just to paint them with a bad brush.

    Lately they have been going hard at the Samsung Galaxy Tab to show that sales aren’t great.
