    I thought you were going to say you wanted random comments about the BGR review popping up in random threads just to hate on them to stop. I was all for that.

    You are welcome to disagree with BGR, but I think 99% of the anger at them is for correctly deflating hyper heated expectations. Once you have your hands on something, as they did, it is no longer that exciting. You will see half the people here agreeing with many of their points soon enough.

    The pre looks good, it moves the ball forward, but the knocking down to reality is natural. You shouldn't resent it.

    You are exactly right. Let's face it, we all think this phone is amazing. But really, think about it 4 months from now, will you still be drooling and going insane? Probably not.

    It's more the comments on BGR that are annoying. I used to visit that site a lot and would just get suckered into arguing with trolls.

    Getting upset about it doesn't do anybody good. The best thing you can do is enjoy your phone. Ignore the others

    I'm not super gung ho about the Pre. Merely "interested". What gets me about BGR is the quality of the "review", based on the content I've read on their site. I simply find them not very credible and therefore, USELESS as a source for determining if the Pre is a winner or loser. We all disagree with some facets of reviews of products that we already have tried, or owned, but with the BGR site, I find it routinely LAME, in comparison to bloggers elsewhere. I'm also not a Gizmodo fan either...

    Getting upset about a bad review before the Pre is even released is a sort of preemptive cognitive dissonance. We all want to be comfortable with our purchases, and so we hate bad reviews that make us doubt our decisions--even more so, apparently, reviews that make us question our anticipation.

    It's the same. I like BGR, not so much for the reviews but for leaked info.
