Wirecutter.com

The New York TImes has launched a new website called Wirecutter.com.

They have reviews where they identify "The best ____."   Like the best macbook to buy, or the best anti-virus products, or the best camping stove.

They have an interesting business model. They get money when you click on links to buy the stuff they recommend. But also it's pretty clear that they're recommendations are based on serious research, and they are not picking what they consider the best products based on anything other than that research.

IOW, they get paid for their recommendations, but their recommendations are objective.

What do you think of Wirecutter? Anyone looked at it yet?
