I used to review concerts for National Public Radio (USA) affiliates.  I 
never felt any pressure to "find at least one Con".  But maybe things 
are different in the computer magazine world, or the print world in 
general.   Of course I realize that the general tone of the MacWorld 
review was very favorable, and that just the fact of the review's 
existence is publicity for the product.  I just have to admit I don't 
understand how the "star-ratings" are determined....maybe it's based on 
a complicated and secret formula that a mere mortal such as myself 
cannot hope to fathom  :-).
