Soooo... It looks like the Evo was starting to pull ahead and all of the sudden engadget deletes the article, poll and comments. Sadly, it was a little more balanced than the previous article that was an Apple sausagefest.

Then again, it probably didn't help Steve Jobs any that the android engadget app has a widget.

Here is the now dead link. I actually do wonder why they would delete it.

Oh, come on. Engadget has been talking about how great the Evo is forever, they gave it an awesome review, and they're pretty reasonable overall.

I bet it just became too much of a hate-fest between fanboys on both sides.

Wow I'm surprised they actually did that. Surely they have some "reason" for it. :P

In the past they just disabled the comments, not delete the entire article. Anybody else remember when comments were disabled on engadget?

You are probably correct. The exchanges between fanboy camps can get pretty heated.

they are biased to whoever gives them more ad money. They pay the bills, guess who the boss is? Who spends more advertising revenue, apple or evo? Thats who gets more positive spin.
