Truth in Advertising?
Baby, it's common. It's all bullshit. All tests by company is bullshit. All tests payed by the company is bullshit. Some of the tests in peer review process is bullshit.
That's why I never buy any new product. I wait some time for the early adopters to start bitching about it. Then I see whether I would bitch about the same flaws too, or it's something I don't give shit about.
Your only hope to avoid bullshit is to have the right attitude - assume all's bullshit unless proven otherwise.
If you think this post is bullshit, too... well, you're a fast learner :)
