Not the best bit of publicity for Apple:
Robert Morgan runs a site called barefeats where he regularly tests Apple hardware. Instead of getting the hardware from Apple (who mostly give it out to larger sites and magazines to review) he has, for years, been going to various Apple stores and testing hardware there.
After his latest review of the Apple iMac G5 showed it wasn’t as fast as Apple claimed Apple HQ told his local store not to let hime test Apple hardware any more.
Apple are trying to play nice now by promising to send him a G5 to test at home.
