Well, look at the source - it's journalism, and it's not meant to be 
strictly accurate, merely sufficiently informative for the 
mostly-uninformed.

I don't imagine e-Week would be interested in printing a retraction 
should you find agreement on a definition in this group (which I suspect 
is rather unlikely).
