Complaining

People told me many times that I complain a lot (maybe even too much sometimes). But this is who I am and you have to live with it.

When I get new device I usually blog about it — like I told during recent conferences: “give me a device and I will find something to complain about, but also will usually tell something positive as well”. Sometimes those posts even got presented by other people at management meetings as an example of what is good/wrong in described products.

But so far I never got an email with ask to remove any blog post — there were comments outside of blog sometimes but never request to take my opinion down. I edited two posts — first one was before publication because I sent it for review (it was not requested by company), second time when I got some information about product in public space but device had to be announced week later at big event during one of trade shows.

What do you think? Should I write more about devices or rather not?

    Yes, please!

    Complaining or not, personally I find it very useful in making an informed decision about a potential purchase.

    Keep it up!

    Your experience is invaluable in determining weak spots of devices, so it helps everybody reading you to select best development device suiting their needs.

    You are doing a very good job with those reviews. Your honest opinions are really valuable to people reading them.

    Some may say that complaining is our national trait. The point is to make a constructive criticism instead of plain grumbilng and that’s something Marcin is good at. As mentioned before, many reviews was useful for the users and helped to make a better choice. Keep the constructive criticism flag up!.

    I’ll complain that in this post you complain (again!), this time about complaining too much. Jokes aside, do go on with your reviews. Contructive criticism should be always welcome, and there is noone to deny you the right to express your thoughts. And as long as people find your your writings useful, they are very valuable!
