Someone at CrunchGear doesn’t seem to like me. Bummer for them. I am their customer – they are NOT mine.
I tried to give some constructive criticism, instead someone (not sure if they were from CrunchGear or not) makes fun of my name instead of addressing my concern. I assume they were on the staff based on their use of “we” in the response.
In any case, my original complaint will seem valid to any of you that subscribe to other tech/gadget blogs (like Engadget). They just seem to be very much a clone of Engadget, and they should do better. They *must* do better to keep my attention.
I read a LOT of tech blogs that all report on the same gadgets. They all report things differently – from their own perspective. I think CrunchGear perhaps reports things too much like Engadget for both of them to keep my attention. Engadget is established. Them I’ll keep. CrunchGear needs to find their own voice and style.
I tried to explain that (I thought politely). Perhaps I failed to do it well. But they need me more than I need them – I know that for a fact. So I expect to be treated like a customer.
I do not think that is too much to ask.
