The Engadget Escape Room

I confess that my RSS subscriptions include the likes of crappy tech blogs like Engadget. It’s a throwback to the days when I loved Fever Reader and its ability to filter out repetitive web articles. I occasionally find something new but more often I find articles like this Engadget gem. I call these articles “Escape Rooms” because they challenge the visitor to find a link to the main subject.

That Engadget article is about Apple publishing their in-store tutorials on YouTube. It contains three links, all of which point to other Engadget properties. No links point to YouTube. As usual I regret visiting Engadget and this article convinced me to remove them from my feeds. I guess I found the exit.

Maybe The Verge is next. At least they added the YouTube embed.
