Arrington implies on the show that Laporte may have given the Palm Pre a good review as he was one of the few to get a test unit. Laporte:
That’s B.S. and I’m really pissed off that you would imply that this ‘free’ Pre that I’m going to send back in seven days would in any way predispose me [to give it a good review because it’s free] … Screw you. Mike, you are such a troll. Screw you, asshole. I’m not kidding. That’s bullshit. I’m infuriated that you would somehow imply that because I have a review unit that would somehow influence me. Screw you. Fuck you, I’m throwing you all off.
