Reviews Are Weird

Stephen Hackett:

Opinions are what form the backbone of well-written product reviews. Yes, information like technical specs, price and release date are all vital, too, but the writer’s view and feelings of the product are what people show up to read.

Furthermore, how can anyone create a quantitative score of their opinion? Is the iPhone 5 really 0.5 better than the Nexus 4? What is that 0.5 representative of, anyway?
