The Verge reviews??
Regardless, I love the site (gdgt) and I find that the community is always able to give me more information about potential purchases. Between this info and Amazon reviews, I've been kept from making some big mistakes!
Truthfully I don't know what's driving the fact that the reviews aren't here. I suspect it's something personal, and hey, it's their site and I completely understand if there's something that we just aren't aware of that's behind the absence. But The Verge is definitely an incredible source of information in tech and it's really conspicuous that the reviews aren't here. I don't want to rehash old wounds. I searched the forums to try and see if there was a post that I missed, because I'm sure there's some pain there. But I just want to understand what the rationale is behind them not being included.
> "With gdgt's critic reviews, we accept requests to be listed from any site or publication, and many publications we didn't carry reviews for early on are now in there. (Likewise, any publication who does not want to be listed in our reviews can opt out.) The Verge hasn't shown any interest in working with us, and they've never requested to have their reviews in gdgt."
I'm going to say what Ryan and Peter are probably too classy to say. NOTE: I have NO inside knowledge and this is not anyone's view but mine. Peter and Ryan are pioneers in tech reporting. They were covering gadgets before it was a 'thing'. I would hope that The Verge would have reached out to them as they have been instrumental in the careers of many of those writers. I'm disappointed that The Verge hasn't supported this effort more.
I will say that I am enthusiastic about gadgets as much as I am on the strength of the efforts of Peter and Ryan and I will support gdgt and whatever future projects they are involved in.
