Now I can understand MD not wishing a compeditor to have their hardware (things being as they are), but preventing magazines from having it sounds ridiculuous.

I'd also point out that AFTER omega is released there is nothing to prevent Castle (or another compeditor/magazine) from buying Omega and giving their name as Joseph Bloggs Esquire (if they wish) - so makes the whole tactic seem pointless.

What does this thinking say about MD ?

The only purpose of this can be to prevent direct comparison between hardware platforms. If that is the case it shows a distinct (and worrying) lack of confidence in their product, in my humble opinion.
