Troubling editing

3 Stars ("It's ok") for the Live Version but only 2 for the edited version available here. For their iPhone 5s review, during the live recording the much ballyhooed fingerprint reader failed repeatedly, I don't think it ever worked. It wasn't until after the live version of the show was over that he finally got it to work, and in the final edited version all they showed was that post-show success and made no mention of all the failures! The reviewer said he "has no patience for passcodes" and even said during the live recording that he was holding the phone wrong which was the cause of the failures! Gak!
The reviewers for this show aren't professional reviewers and that often comes through, in fact I'd say it's part of the charm and you have to keep that in mind. In editing out negative aspects of a review and not even making any mention of them is unforgivable. I can't trust their opinions and analysis presented in the final edited podcasts here on iTunes but I think there's still value in seeing the products being handled and used and I like their production selections.
