Small Hacker News thread talking about one of the many problems with all current popular user review products. The issue here is no way to contest incorrect reviews, either through disingenuity or out of stupiditiy #a #user #reviews #project #flaw #future #interesting #fix #ratings #issue #app #store #amazon #netflix #imdb #pub

People are giving bad reviews because they didn't realize they should buy the mini displayport for all Macbook's after 2008-ish time. Seriously…this shows how broken user review systems are. People being dumb messes it up #stupidity #research #review #system #broken #user #reviews #lemmings #dumb #pub

Like Metacritic for gadgets/electronics. Has average score for critics and then user reviews too #metacritic #aggregation #reviews #electronics #startup #funded #pub
Supposed to be good at helping with buying headphones. You can call their "experts" too? #headphones #audiophiles #audio #experts #e-commerce #reviews #shopping #pub
Example of a needless review. Totally fine for albums to be 26 minutes and less than 8 songs. Most people don't listen to albums anyway. #examples #reviews #not_optimal #music #pub
"For a long time we've believed that the web hosting industry hasn't had enough transparency around performance & uptime. Our aim is to provide a transparent platform that gives you the data you need to make the right decisions when choosing a web host. What We Do We've built a method for running UnixBench server benchmarks in the cloud, currently this is only available for Linux based servers. Every benchmark has a unique key that when completed syncs securely with our server & passes the benchmark data back. We use the hostname to check if the server being benchmarked matches up with the host it's attached to, we also look at some other metrics like hard drive space, RAM & the CPU's to make sure the plan matches up. Once the benchmark is complete we'll send you a report that shows your current plan in comparison to similar plans. For example if you're on a VPS we might show you similar VPS plans with better performance & some lower tier dedicated servers. The benchmark then gets assigned to that host giving us richer data for the next time we run a report. We also have a benchmarks section which groups the data by server type, so you can see the current top performing dedicated servers or cloud providers. Running the benchmarking script on your server is a completely secure process, we understand that some people may not feel comfortable running a foreign script on their server. Our aim is to be transparent so you can view the code we're executing on GitHub." #reviews #reviews_site #comparisons #hosting #benchmarks #vps #dedicated_servers #bootstrap_layout #ideas #affiliate_marketing #copy #steal #rankings #@next_web_iterations #coupons #affiliate_driven #pub
20+ reviews on Metacritic for season 5 of Breaking Bad. This is the only non-100% review. Still positive, but just barely, at 67/100. Interesting to see this side. "The list of felonies that came after is too long to catalog here, but it’s easy to imagine how the aspiring crime lord would fare against New Jersey mobster Tony Soprano: Walt would take out the Mafioso and his cronies with cunning ruthlessness before they even realized they were under attack." "Take tonight’s premiere, “Live Free or Die,” by series creator and executive producer Vince Gilligan, in which Walt comes up against a seemingly insurmountable problem. Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) may be dead, but he left a laptop filled with incriminating video that now resides securely in the evidence room at the local police station. After some demented inspiration from Jesse (Aaron Paul), Walt launches a caper so audacious, it’s almost comical." Last two paragraphs in particular for why this wasn't given a higher score. I'm not sure about giving it a 67, but I can agree that a 100 wouldn't make sense unless you start giving every pretty good show a 100 :P #tv #reviews #critics #my_thoughts #pub

Trying to be a Metacritic, sort of? The strong point is that they compile a bunch of different website lists like end of year lists of Tiny Mix Tapes, AV Club, etc, on the site. #music #lists #aggregation #reviews #ratings #data #ideas #references #pub
