During the last weeks, I have more and more the feeling that Daring Fireball is becoming an almost semi-official blog to transmit official Apple views on different issues. The last note written by Steve Jobs on the Flash conflict with Adobe could perfectly have been written by Gruber, given the almost complete identity of their respective reasonings.
In my humble opinion, it might be time to reconsider the editorial line of Daring Fireball. If the trend continues, I personally will delete its address from my reference sites on technology, because I don't want parrots making Apple propaganda: I want what Daring Fireball has been in the past: an interesting website, obviously with preferences for Apple products, but still credible. And the credibility is clearly under question, at this time. In order to keep credibility of opinions, it has to be clearly stated that your opinions are not depending on the interests of any enterprise, including Apple.
