Sure, we do charge for the magazine, but the mag doesn't subsidize the site - bit is its own business, and this is a deal on bit-tech. Reading the situation this way, yes, there is a possible conflict of interests - and to be honest, there's no real way I can *prove* to you that it won't affect things, other than to say, it won't: the Scan integration is optional for the editorial team, in that if the CMS picks up a price for a product Scan stocks, it appears at the top of the review. If Scan doesn't stock an item, no price is surfaced and we're under no compulsion to review items Scan stocks - in fact, it actually works a bit in reverse. Because bit-tech readers tend to like buying hardware, it's in Scan's interest to stock that kit, so often our editorial interests impact on Scan's catalogue, rather than vice versa. I don't mind debating the business side of things, and I'm obviously keen to keep the readers informed about things. However, I would say, keep the tone of the thread civil.
