Detailed look at coverage of Google’s fortunes vs Apple

Daniel Eran Dilger for Apple Insider

It's almost hard to fathom that today's barely-old-enough-to-vote high school seniors were born in a year where anyone with a media badge was essentially required to refer to Apple, Inc. as not only "Apple Computer," but "the beleaguered Apple Computer," due to the fact that the Macintosh maker had been losing money while its software platform strategy continued to flounder.

That's the opening of a lengthy piece looking at how Google is portrayed by the media, particularly in financial coverage. It's a fitting opening because it reminds me of the fire breathing that was common within the Apple blogs back in the 90's. Daniel seems angry about things.

It's an compelling read that makes some interesting points. Mostly though I enjoyed the spirited flame thrower.
