PED again on the double standard employed in tech and stock media– Business Insider– comparing Apple’s iPhone 5 to Samsung’s Galaxy S4’s early sales:
And what was its headline Friday?
‘Samsung’s S4 Starts Strong: 10 Million Units In Less Than A Month’
When Apple reported last September that it sold 5 million iPhone 5 units in three days, analysts expressed “disappointment” and Business Insider ran this headline:
‘iPhone 5 Opening Weekend Sales Come In Worst Than Expected’
10-million in a month is great, while 5-million in three days is bad. Also note, Samsung’s numbers were shipments, Apple’s numbers were sales.
Business Insider is a shameful rag whose ethics appear to mirror perfectly those of the company’s founder.
