I would be more excited if they would review umbrellas or, steak knives. Certainly doesn't seem like their forte, that's for certain.

You're quoting me, but you don't seem to be responding to anything I stated. I said absolutely nothing about "computer 'experts' can't be camera enthusiasts/photographers", nor did I say "a person can only have one interest in life". What I did say is that computer publications generally do a poor job reviewing photo equipment.
Computer Shopper magazine (U.K.) does great one page camera reviews. Short they may be (about 1000 words), but there's a wealth of useful info and comments proving they've actually used the cameras seriously, in fact their comments are a sight more useful than DPR's for a prospective buyer. Pentax cameras generally get 5 star reviews, apart from the K500, they didn't like the lack of VF AF points.

Did someone blast her on Twitter yet to point out her "oversights"
I wonder what cameras she has around her neck in her profile (macworld) pic. They are probably just something to hold her IPhone.
