Wow! Digital Trends Really Blew It!


First, Digital Trends claimed that VanMoof was lying about their ebike being hard to steal. They went on and on about every aspect being a false claim, or easily defeated. That was about a week ago.

Today, they are RETRACTING every statement, and alologizing to the company. They trusted the results claimed by a third party without verifying them, nor reaching out to VanMoof. They have been unable to reproduce the original failures they reported.

We Were Wrong. The VanMoof S2 Ebike Isn't That Easy to Steal | Digital Trends

I can appreciate the apologies. But this is SHODDY JOURNALISM at its best. The damage the original article did is probably incalculable.

I feel sad for VanMoof.
