Every writer needs a Thesaurus from time to time

To finish out the week, a pair of reviews at CNET.com.au. Firstly, a game review that had me reaching for the thesaurus rather quickly:
The Last Airbender: “As with any good twist, you don’t want to play your hand too early. A twist given away right at the start isn’t a twist, it’s just a plot point.
So instead, let’s head off to Thesaurus corner…”
and then yet-another-Tablet goes under the review hammer. Not literally. Products don’t tend to like hammers, unless they’re nails, and I don’t review those.
Hanvon BC10: “Hanvon’s Windows 7 tablet has some interesting features, but sub-standard battery life and applications that don’t take advantage of touch detract significantly.”
