    Go to Engadget and hit this link first:

    Introducing review scorecards! -- Engadget

    Notice the explanation of the scoring system.

    Then Go click on this link NEXT:

    Engadget

    Notice the score of the iPhone 4. Based on the explanation of the scoring method and the score that the device received, I am wondering if they love Uncle Steve and don't want to upset him?

    How can you give a phone that doesn't make phone calls well a 9/10!!?? I enjoy reading Engadget daily, but there is no doubt about who their favorite company is.

    If you notice the only other device on that page that received a 9/10 was....that's right another apple product.

    Engadget=Apple Fanboys

    Edit: just noticed the Nikon camera got 9/10 too. And a steal at only $5200, LOL

    Every single tech blog I read is blatantly biased towards Apple. Engadget and BoyGeniusReport are easily the worst. Gizmodo is a little better ever since Apple sued them for buying that lost iPhone 4 before it was released. Any suggestions for a tech site that is more even keeled?

    Yea I brought this up in the Droid X review on Engadget and on here...I was upset. lol Its so obvious too with Engadget.

    Just be fair.. mention, review the actual phone aspects of it. Seeing this, I wouldnt trust any reviews from them again. I will just use that site for info about specs and news only.
