Suckups, Suckers, And Sloppiness Mislead eBook Readers

On Wednesday, August 26, 2009, I posted: Google’s One Million eBooks Of Crap!

On Thursday 27th August 2009, Computer Shopper did: Google turns classic books into free gibberish eBooks

No other coverage of the one million eBooks from Google mentioned they were crap!

And how many linked back to the original story?

Here is the list of shame:

GoogleLinks001
Click = big

GoogleLinks002
Click = big

GoogleLinks003
Click = big

Once again, I can’t trust most of the coverage out there.

How much of a suckup do you have to be to pimp free?

How unqualified to write about eBooks are these people that they never even took a simple few minutes to check the quality?

Update: One other site did. Munsey’s Technosnarl: Did Google Just Give a Million Reasons for Publishers to Opt Out?
