Quite a few times I find myself inadvertently redirected to another site by following a story link on Macworld. And that's not entirely bad by itself, but I do wish there was a way to comment on those stories in the Macworld forums, rather than having to register a user ID and password on yet-another site.

Some of those TechHive stories are in bad need of editing before they get posted (or crossposted). For example, today

The title reads "Bitcoins just topped $200 in real money" which is ludicrous. A news story about a $200 company? Really? Or is it $200 Thousand? Nope, the $200 figure is repeated in the body text, so it must be correct. Later in the story, we see the garbled statement "...the company has plans to separate their front-end site the trading platform in order to avoid these types of attacks". Perhaps a cut/paste error. But an error of some kind nonetheless. Then at the end of the story we find out that the company was worth $2 Billion. Though maybe they meant $2. I wouldn't dare guess.
