The recent Steorn video which references a cheeky quote from Engadget from a while back amongst other similar quotes has got the online tat rag all riled up again.
How dare anyone question them - right? Wrong. Engadget it seems would rather have a readership full of square-eyed iPod zombies than free thinkers. Fortunately a lot of their readers are much smarter than they give them credit for. The Gods at "Mount
Olympus Engadget" have spoken, so just shut up and take their word for it, OK.
Steorn recently developed a USB hall probe for measuring magnetic fields which has won some rave reviews, but in a poor mans attempt at discrediting the company Engadget smugly cackle - "Now, coffers filled again after assuredly brisk sales of USB-powered divining rods".
Now read the sentence above again. Did you see the reference to divining rods? Do you see what they do? See the twisting of meaning here? This is how they try and manipulate the opinion here by trying to associate something ordinary with fantasy.
I'll leave you with another epic fail quote from them:
"We're going to firmly stand by our disbelief."
Good luck with that.
