Spring has sprung... and so has the weather station review articles. 😁
Take this for what it's worth.

OMG, I was just glancing through this "information" and came across this comment:

"Meanwhile, the Iris can detect and report lightning up to 25 feet away."

My crapped pants will do just fine...thank you very much.

Should I comment...? Umm... No.

There are so many of these terrible weather station review sites that paying them attention is actually all that they want. So if we link to them, they win. They don't want to give good information. All they want is click counts for ad revenue.

These sorts of sites exist for everything. I recently got into coffee and learning what good coffee is and what is a good brewing system and techniques. I followed James Hoffmann on YouTube and read stuff by George Howell and other experts. Then you run into these fake "best coffee machine" reviews and after you know and are really educated the whole thing is just laughable.

I guess you can make money doing and saying anything. The worst part is that people believe anything these days.
