CNET have to be skint. It is the only way to explain the continual breakage of the Search function at Metacritic.
CNET have to be potless because otherwise they would pay for a real mobile site. Shovelling a full desktop version into a smartphone just doesn’t work.
And this isn’t new, it’s been going on for months. Someone should buy Metacritic and make it as good on a mobile device. CNET can’t afford to so they’ll love the money.
