  1. #1

    Default dpreview.com had been acquired by Amazon.com

    News: http://www.dpreview.com/news/0705/07...esdpreview.asp

    Don't know if the review will become towards biased after that.

    Sad for those seeking honest reviews, happy that 10 years of hard work did pay off in 1 lump sum for Phil.

    Don't see how it would become biased. Amazon sells almost anything, so doesn't make sense for them to be bias against any brands.

    Biased towards those brands where they have a higher profit margin, maybe ?

    However, would be quite hard I guess. Because once a review is done and posted, its kinda cast in stone They can screw up the reviews of subsequent models of that brand though.

    These days only money talks.
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....

    then u will see a shopping cart on the bottom of every screen and there is a buy it now button beside all the reviews...

    then u get a price on the side of every picture...

    List Price : $****.**
    Price: $****.**
    You Save: $***.**
