way to earn those kick backs MR. shameless promotion of sub par products. kinda over you now.


#1. These may "sub par products" in your book, but some people on here might find these items to suit their needs.

#2. Why shouldn't MacRumors make some affiliate money? Aren't you here using the services they provide? Reading their news stories and posting on their forums. Bandwidth costs them money... you know!

#3. You are "over" MacRumors now? Good. I guess we won't be seeing your snotty posts here anymore. Don't let the door hit you on the way out....

#4. At least MacRumors is transparent enough to disclose that these are promoted stories.


How MacRumors chose to disclose that these are promoted stories is not good enough. They should be more forthright and disclose this at the beginning of the story and not be vague about it at the bottom of the story by saying "some of these vendors."

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for M.R. making a little affiliate dollars on this site. I'm even fine if they add even more promoted stories to the site just be clear about it and not try and pull the wool over someone. I love this site and will continue to be a loyal reader.

Any thoughts about the mini jambox anyone?


Good reviews, great product...I think. I've only used the original Jambox and would highly recommend that. I've read that the mini had it volume restricted vs. the original but performs well while being half the size of the original.

So, if greater portability is what you need go for the mini otherwise stick with the original.
