Technews, the way I like it...


NZHerald tech writer needs to get clued up!

, posted: 28-May-2008 12:00

I was just browsing NZ Herald website, and spotted this news article about Adobe releases Creative Suite betas and thought it is interesting for a read. However I spotted this paragraph and had to think twice about what product the author was referring to: "The company, which began selling its CS3 group of design programs in the spring of 2007, has released beta versions of its Dreamworks website creation software, Fireworks graphics program and Soundbooth audio editing program on its Adobe Labs site." Only later I realised the author had it mixed with "Dreamweaver" and "Fireworks" and created a new product called "Dreamworks" - which initially, I thought it was Dreamworks for Dreamworks LLC SKG. And for the "Kodak moment"... here's a screenshot of the NZ Herald's embarrassing moment.

This is a Reuters release, the Herald never got embarrassed making its own NZ tech mistakes so won't care about this.

That article came straight from Reuters (complete with error)

Well... then it is embarrassing to see the Reuters to report it so wrongly, even after it has been edited (on Reuters)
