Last month I commented on this Firefox article by Bill Thompson over at BBC News Online, saying that his claims about the critical update icon were, well, wrong, basically. Here’s what I said in full.
Anyway, Bill came across my piece and left this comment:
Hi there – I think that you’re right that I’ve overstated it… five computers in the house, kids machines to look after, so I’ve been seeing a lot of red buttons… I’ll ask my editor to change the article on the BBC website. It’s important to get the details right so that the larger point gets through.
Which is excellent 🙂 . He’s amended
I wish more journalists would do this when they’re proved wrong – well done to Bill for setting a good example.
