    There goes the "objectivity" of CNET.

    Actually that's probably not fair to blame on Apple. Most of the tech rags have very strong ties to certain vendors already. It's very hard to find a site that reviews hardware and software without a "ahem" bent. Maybe anandtech, tomshardware?

      There goes all the nice things they were saying about Windows 10. Who reads that garbage anyway when we have el reg?

    That way they can say "no comment" right to their faces.

    The lease will reportedly run through 2022.

    Until when?

    Objectivity is seldom there anyway..

    So not that much will have changed.

    Micosoft 10 will still have its zero day hacks low on the radar whilst Android will get its scare stories without much objectivity.

    I mean, how come there was mention of the new IE Edge having or not having the latest zero day, or the fact that its built in Flash and PDF readers add complexity and thus hack avenues?

    CBS Interactive? You Mean the Crapware People?

    CBS Interactive needs to die! They operate Download.COM and wrap tons of crapware around all of the shareware you download from them. Hopefully Apple does not absorb any of CBSi bad habits.

    Wtf with this headline

    they are leasing office space. How does that become "grabbing a chunk of zdnet"? And why would Apple seek direct control over media when most of it bows to their jackboot media policies already?
