Aren't tech reporters who know sfa annoying?

I hate reading tech reports in the media where it clear almost from the forst word written that they know almost nothing about the subject they are commenting on.

A case in point is this mornings article in the The Press about Skype.

Where does one begin with the many falsehoods outlined in this article.

  1. Skype is not a website per se, it is an application.
  2. You can hide yourself from the great unwashed.
  3. Don't you know what your kids are doing on the internet? Fools

I have used Skype for years, I have never had unwanted  calls, or people wanting to make friends. That is mainly because almost all the information loaded in my profile is false, I only accept connections from invited persons that I know and I understand the technology and all of the settings.

If anything the article highlights the dangers of high technology easily accessible to the masses.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
