Post Payola?

The other day, when the Post printed an article by Neal Mueller on the iPod’s inability to play Van Halen at 30,000 feet above sea level, I said, “Man, bummer that my iPod won’t play bad 80s hair rock on the top of the world.” Turns out, I should’ve been saying “Hey, wait a second, this looks like Payola to me…”

Turns out, Neal Mueller, who ever so much loves his Creative MuVo, is in fact sponsored by the company whose device he touts. In addition, it appears the Mac community (shockingly a zealous group) is taking a bit of umbrage, pointing out that it shouldn’t have worked as high as it did, and are upset that the Post would let someone with such clear bias write an editorial.

Can we expect jabs at Apple from employees of Microsoft at the Post, now?
