clearly has not come up with good ones.

Their measurement methods are OK, and reasonably rigorous. The major problem is the way that fanboys insist on using the measurements, typically without any understanding of what they mean. The other issue is the oevrall DxOmark. It is ridiculous to propose a simple scalar figure of merit, and even more ridiculous to think because one sensor scores higher on an arbitrary mix of measures that it is 'better' than another sensor. However, taken as what they are, the DxO measures provide a lot of useful information to inform purchase decisions. You need to know what you're looking at, though.
