    Potentially good article, just seem's really badly written. The casual tone is a bit over the top and personally puts me off a little.

    Shame as the article reflects a lot of my thoughts on the huge gulf we are currently in between some impressive tech 'launches' and them actually hitting the market. I want to see more definitive dates from manufacturers, although having said that I am not wanting them to rush things.

    Seems to be a trend on Fridays:

    All the Hexus writers slope off to the pub on a Friday afternoon

    sounds like an angry forummer, except they want the best phone from every network all at the same time for no other reason than an article.

    All of Divisive's articles are like this and I don't have a problem with it. It's a casual throw-away piece, and it's perfectly suited to the subject in question to be like that. I quite like the inane ramblings of a Friday for exactly that reason. In my eyes, the worst journalism is generic journalism, where you can't tell one writer from another, but you couldn't argue that with Divisive's articles - indeed you can spot them from a mile off, and so long as they continue to suit the subject matter, that's a good thing.

    The author's name doesn't go out of its way to argue with that diagnosis.

    It's not just the ones you mention. This time last year the pundits were heavy on arm-based android tablets and netbooks that would sweep M$ away. I've not seen one.

    All these android tablets on review sites. None in the high street.

    Further afield, two years ago we were promised cfl lamps that would replace 200W incandescents, and led lamps as good as 60W ones. Nothing. Nada.

    In an even softer target, where is my electric car?
