Blinded by Segways

Blinded by scooters: According to Erik Wemple (no relation to Mr. Whipple), reporters have been duped into becoming some sort of PR-Stepford wives when it comes to coverage of the Segway. Of course, Erik’s article gave the Segway that much more coverage, most of which comes off fairly positive for the device. The article does more to make Erik look like a dumbass than to defame reporters who are swept up by it. Anyway, hasn’t Erik ever seen the past 20 years of coverage of Apple?
