I gave up expecting anything sensible from the bbc on any sort of tech 
stuff a long time ago.

The only mainstream journalist who writes properly on these matters is 
John Naughton in the Observer.  And don't get me started on the 
Guardian's coverage either in particular the pipe smoking idiot Jack 

This from a lifelong (45 years) Guardian reader and admirer of the BBC, 
woolly leftie in fact.
